anyone know what they are?
i wanna know the best ones for spanish and french. not oriental ones!
St Andrews does french I think.
hiya i'm biased but i'm doing spanish at Bristol and i'm loving it. To be honest it's really hard to compare with other uni's but a good guide would be to ask how many contact hours you have and how mnay options are available in the 2nd year onwards. One of the things that really put me off durham was that there was barely any choice in Spansh options but at Brsitol i will have loads to choose from next year. Also look at a-level requirements to see what kind of people your course seems to attract. IN terms of reputation Oxbridge are obviously going to attract the best people and as result all the teaching will be tailored to a high level. For languages especially its useful if your studying with people that are of a similar standard to yourself. Even within people who got all A's there is still quite a big differnece in abilites. So think about theat when looing at uni's that might have bbc requirments
ok take your point. I have noticed that spanish is so much easier than Portuguese and thats just another romance language. I woul love to try japanese though.
If you want to do a comparision Spanish is so much harder than English...
is a richer language, in conjugations and verbal times by instance.
Spanish should be easier to indo-europeans speakers especially of course to the Romance ones.
that doesn't surprise me. I read somewhere that before the security services take agents on they will give them a language aptitude test to try and find their abilty to learn the arabic languages even if they've done a latin based language degree because being good at learning one type of languages doesn't necessarily mean you will adapt to arabic etc.
