    Would YOU hypothetically be capable of self studying the entire Spanish and Geography A-levels in the space of 9 months? If would be your only acedemic commitment...(Just try to imagine that's the case: I know it's hard for you.)

    I've moved on from Statistics and GCSEs now, you see...

    If it's German for you... And my French/Spanish equivalent.

    Then yes, definitely.

    Others here may disagree but I think I definitely could.

    Would you receive any support?
    I don't want to pour cold water on the barbecue, but Fish hasn't actually taken AS-levels in any language yet, never mind A2. He's also probably going to be on WJEC, whereas thatitootoo will be on AQA.

    At this point, thatitootoo has more experience of mfl A-levels.

    You figured German & Anthropology for me
    I'll most difinitely receive A2 German support (I might even be enrolled for AS+A2) as I've buddied-up with the head of Languages @ college Other than that I'm enrolled for Anthropology AS, so I'll at least have access to an Anthro tutor when I need someone to mark those overly extensive A2 essay questions :rolleyes:

    Yes. The English people are now visiting the homes of the foreigners who do not speak English. One is from Poland, one is from China, one is from Colombia and the last is from Congo. The first episode, available here, is when the foreign people are matched and living with the English people for a week. The episode tonight is when the English families are staying with the foreigners in their native country.

    LOL But Fish does have more A-level experience...

    Are you insinuating that the relevant WJEC and AQA MFL A-levels are not of a similar level of difficulty!?

    I'm saying this is a variable. They're different, and the techniques to succeed may be different.

    Although some teachers on forums say that WJEC is easier...

    My favourite is the woman from Congo. Her story is so sad and it amazes me how she is still so strong. Also, I like the English people she is paired with.

    I have a lot of catching up to do as well. I will need to start making a list of what TV programmes I need to catch up on or I will lose track.

    I have no idea about the storyline, but it's a TV adaptation of one of Philippa Gregory's books. My friend really likes them, so when I saw the TV show I thought I'd give it a try (at some point).

    I was talking more of a being able.to do 2 A2s in a year with no other commitments... As opposed to thinking about the actual subjects.

    His are different though. So to me I was just answering based on that.

    What exactly is anthropology?

    There we go. I think it is doable, but yeah... My opinion doesn't count for.much :lol:

    Well off the top of my head... Anthropolgy is he study of what it means to be human in diverse societies around the world. It's not a very popular subject...is it even listed on the (in)famous UCL & Trinity A-level suitability lists???

    I need a German/Dutch buddy. Im mein tägliches Leben, habe ich gar niemand womit ich diese Sprachen übungen(sp?) kann!
