    Really? Is vorpal different then? I was told to put my picture on vorpal before 15th September to get my uni card when I register.
    Vorpal? for my uni card i had to send my picture with a form before I registered.

    Nevermind I asked the guy I got the info off again and he said that was his nickname for the registration department :/ I need to punch him in September.

    Says we can pick up on card during registration though but we won't know how until early September.

    Edit: Here, have a description for Japanese History though. I got that ages ago by asking for it via e-mail. :x
    That attachment was amazing, really in-depth information about the History module. I'm very interested to see this for the other modules. Do you have them too? If not, how would you suggest I find them?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately, I don't have any other ones. I got it by emailing SEAS and asking for it. I told them the descriptions on the module website weren't good enough for me to make informed decisions.

    I'm going for History and Literature. I can't say that either subject appeals to me hugely, but it sounds a lot better to me than the other options. I dropped English History as soon as I could in High School, but Japanese History does sound a whole lot more interesting.

    I wish I could do more language modules, though. There isn't any way of doing that, is there?

    I feel the same way. I'm sure the modules will get more interesting as we do them but if I could have my way I'd study East Asian Cinema if that was still an option, and put some spring modules in place of the autumn ones! I think the choice is quite limited!

    Sure. Username is "redpaperwhite". I like red.
    I'm up for voice chats so long as it's in a group.

    I need to say something about the course, I feel like I've not contributed very much here.

    Yay, other people use Skype. I never got MSN working right.

    If anyone wants it, pm me for my username. I had to make it my real name for professional reasons so I can't post it on the interwebs.

    http://www.facebook.com/groups/163901023664195/ is what it was I think. I don't remember; Facebook banned me after realizing my profile was fake. You can stalk the group's owner at http://nihonburp.com/

    So after months of begging, I finally received one of these rare Japanese-German cultural exchange buttons. I was literally jumping with joy when I opened the mail earlier today... my neighbors probably think I've totally lost it.



    Stalking me has never been easier with this on my bag. :V


    Fun fact: the kanji for Germany - 独 - also means alone. English people got their kanji - 英 - without any other meanings. :<

    英 also means like すぐれている (brilliant?). For example in 英才教育 (special education for gifted children).

    Congratulations by the way!

    I do wonder why they came up with 英 representing English. I'd assume it already meant brilliant before that. Too bad there's no module that teaches the origin of kanji, how they evolved, etc. I could actually imagine that being kind of fun. :O
