    Quoi?
    It means "good" or "that's nice!". Russians communicate with as few words as possible.

    Hi :wavey:

    I'm intermediate in Russian and learning French basics all over again with my mother. After that, Spanish. Hopefully.

    And I'm a girl.
    :lol: Your gender was indeed a hot topic lately How does it feel to be caught up in the centre of a gender dispute? xD I'm glad it's finally been settled..

    Ohh I seee, that sounds really fun actually I'm guessing your mom will also help you with Spanish, I remember you mentioned that she spoke it??

    How is uni going? This time last year you were telling me how hard you found your French A2..

    I've seen many gender disputes on TSR (not going to name names) and nothing was quite as heated as this
    Uni's good, thank you. Only made acquaintances this year so I'm going to volunteer and join more societies (the Economics society drink, drink and drink until there will be nothing left except for maybe some sack cloth and a ruptured liver - events are crap at best but they help you to get a job in the end so...). I always had fun when volunteering - even trying to pull a cart in the snow and ice was good fun!

    My mother's fluent in Spanish so she will teach me that.

    That's right - the good thing is that you don't need so many words, the bad thing is the dreaded case system :afraid:
    Words' endings change more than I change my clothes :afraid: :afraid:

    I did Latin at GCSE Level by self-teaching and got a B in it. I knew that Latin A Level was the way to go for my fifth A Level but I took French instead and did crap at it :unimpressed:

    Those gcses aren't very well structured IMO I got b in Greek and didnt do Latin but got a in Greek a level and a star in Latin alevel, you probably got a b cuz of the stupid exam and not that you didn't deserve an a

    Yeah, those linguistic techniques really got me. When self-teaching, I just memorised an entire booklet of notes so I can answer those questions! Nevertheless, I didn't memorise it all very clearly. Had to do it in 6 months (building from my previous knowledge for it) so if I just had a couple of months more then I would've gotten an A*.

    :lol: :lol: Is this drunkiness specific to the economics department? :O
    I'm not sure whether I'd make any effort to be sociable when I'm at uni, I generally don't like people! xD Sounds like good fun indeed Do you have any terrifying stories to share about the student halls @ QMUL??

    I don't live in halls - I live at home. In fact, a lot of people prefer to do the shared accommodation thing and not go to halls in QMUL. There must be horror stories then, if that's the case.

    The Economics social events are more of a game of how many people you can chat to while getting pissed on a cocktail or Tiger beer :lol:
    How come the word "pissed" is not asterixed out by a swear filter? :curious:

    :lol: yhh I think I'd definitely prefer that...or just my own accommodation would be even better! But I don't think the London accommodation loans would cover that...=L

    Can someone help me here ? I live in Hertfordshire, England and I'm struggling to find a uni that is fairly near that offers french and chinese or spanish and chinese. I'm passionate about these languages despite having not learnt mandarin however I'm currently facing a dilemma as not many universities are that flexible with their courses particularly Oxbridge ones !! Can someone recommend any decent unis? I've had a look around Edinburgh and Manchester despite being far away from home however that is pretty much it!!

    Unfortunately, I think you'll have to go some distance, I know Nottingham and Leeds definitely have that, but those are reasonably far away from you. However, SOAS do a French and (almost any Asian or African language they have), and it's in London.

    Thanks, however I have indeed looked at SOAS..... and chinese is not a possible language to be combined with french unfortunately I may have to accept that maybe french and spanish aren't too bad, and i'll just take evening courses in mandarin?

    Oh yeah, that's a bit odd. But you still have the likes of Manchester, Edinburgh, Leeds, Nottingham, I believe you can study Chinese somehow at Birmingham and I think that Chinese is offered as a minor language in UCL's Language and Culture program. If you want a more specialized course, such as this one, you'll probably have to travel for it, unfortunately.
