    You're... You're... Are you Muslim?:eek:

    Nope! sorry! I don't even have a language okay...

    Sorry, the people above are very good at their respective languages. I'd have put myself forward for French (and I'm not too bad at it) and I'm not there so no
    I think I deserve a special title - youngest person here, unless Emily appears!

    Well, that all depends! The possible languages at any uni are: French, Spanish, German, Icelandic, Arabic, Russian, Chinese, and I think that's it!

    What about you?

    Lol I believe I still have another year to go but I do intend to study french and spanish despite them being the most common combinations but I'd also want to continue with mandarin chinese but I'm not sure if it is possible to study three languages !

    Hi everyone! I'm new to this thread, but it looks good fun because everyone loves languages here! I just think the word "polyglot" on its own sounds cool! :L



    I know I'm new, but I'll happy be a representative for Spanish! I'm hoping that I'll get an A* at GCSE, and I also plan to take it on for A-Level. And I slightly prefer it to French so it'd make more sense to sign up for Spanish.

    If you don't mind me waiting a while?

    Are there any possible Oxbridge applicants here for MML or other language-related combination ?
    Um, I printed off an Oxford languages admissions paper when I was procrastinating, and got my tutor to mark it, but I wouldn't dream of applying!

    In fact... I would indeed love to be french or spanish representative... I achieved both A* in IGCSE (for mock lol) but next year I will be studying italian A level alongside french and spanish so it'll be demanding but rewarding

    I wanted to distribute one language per user... But.... I guess 2 is fair... Especially as one is welsh!

    Which would he prefer, French or Spanish?

    Haha you're not the only one !!! I did an MLAT (modern language aptitude test) online whilst I was procrastinating but I'd have to say that i didn't do too badly... I don't know if my teachers or friends would laugh at me if I even think of trying so I'm too sure how did you do in the admissions paper then ?

    woooooohooooo .... I actually have to confess..... I would be doing my chinese mandarin gcse next year so therefore I would not be able to do it for A-level... would I still be able to pick it up as more or less ab initio? Alongside french and spanish at degree level? Or is that not possible as I have achieved chinese gcse?

    Well, the artificial language bit was lots of fun, but I took ages over it- wouldn't have passed under timed conditions. I got stuck/bored half-way through the linguistics one on the aboriginal language.

    The translations were fun, but I needed a dictionary, and my tutor spotted a few errors when I brought my attempts over. Unsurprisingly, perhaps!

    You know, all you have to do, is copy the questions out, write your attempts underneath and take it to a tutor, and say you found some extension work on the internet. You don't have to say where it's from.

    That's a bit annoying, but it would be fine, I doubt having a bit of extra knowledge wouldn't be of any harm!

    Of course! I was thinking that as well, I just wondered, I'll still be around on the thread though because I love language discussions
