    This course caught my eye in the oxford prospectus. Does there have to be any connection between the languages chosen, eg. Russian and Hebrew; German and Arabic? is it good fun?

    hey - no your languages don't have to have a connection really - guess its good if they do but mine don;t! i'm in first year doing EMEL at ox & so far enjoying it although it is a lot of work & doing one from scratch means you have to take a lot of grammar in at once!

    I'm doing French and Turkish - I read one Turkish novel translated into English before my interview but did some background reading on Turkish history & made sure I was up to date with Turkish current affairs. Which college are you going for though?
