    again, it depends on yourself, what you want to do etc. Opal courses obviously cost money, and why do you want to do a language?

    You are not comparing like with like. Read the Oxford prospectus and you will see that the History and Mod Langs joint school is not just about doing a bit of both. It's also about the interconnections and if you cannot show some understanding of that and some interest in this 'bridge' area, I'd estimate your chnaces of geting in might be quite slim.

    obviously i am very aware of the 'bridges' between the language and history but the point of my question is that is it more beneficial to have the experience of a language in an OPAL course or as part of the degree....pros/cons of both?
