    You need to be very careful about doing Dutch as one of your four AS Levels or one of your three A2s. Since you're a native speaker, some universities will not accept it, which will leave you with less than the normal amount of qualifications.

    Edit: Though Anthropology sounds fascinating.
    For all intents and purposes, I shall consider myself a non-native Dutch speaker.
    Tbh, I'm probably going to apply to universities who lean more towards the UCAS point system...as I'm not going to get AAABB :L

    The course seems pretty cool as well, though I'll probably drop it after AS

    Ce n'est pas vrai.

    Je n'ai pas essayé de apprendre1 le français à lui. Ich habe auch ihm wenig2 Deutsch gelehrt. I just sat next to him and made him do German exercises on Kerboodle.

    1Should this be enseigner?

    2This feels wrong.

    Now this is the confusing thing.

    Do you see why I put apprendre? Can I use enseigner, given I'm not talking about the qualified teacher kind of teaching?

    I don't feel confident about either of them!

    Even if the dictionary says apprendre, the idea of a word meaning both to teach to someone and to learn hurts my poor English mind!

    And to think I was pointing out to poor Thatitootoo earlier this afternoon, that he couldn't use lernen to mean teach, for that very reason. I was really patronising about it, as well.

    Loooolololol I was surprised you can't say "... zu lernen"
    To teach / to learn is the same "leren" verb in Dutch! :O


    What about this oui being pronounced as "way" instead of "wee" business, Lady?

    Ich kann mich nicht mehr sehr gut erinnern, wie du das Wort gestern ausgesprochen hast! Aber es hörte mir nur anders an, dann das "wee" woran ich gewöhnt bin

    You hit me too much...wollen Sie das ich ein Konkussion bekommen soll?
