    Hi
    Thanks for reading this
    I am hoping to study Japanese/ Chinese and French next year and am interested in Birmingham's modern languages course
    I understand that Japanese and Chinese are taught only as minors at Birmingham. Does this mean that:
    1 these languages are taught non intensively, or are there simply less optional modules available for Japanese/Chinese than for you major language?
    2. If I was to study Japanese/ Chinese alongside French, would I be able to spend my year abroad in Asia rather than France, even though they are minor subjects?
    3. For anyone who has studied Japanese/Chinese as a minor at Birmingham Uni, would you say that you have a high level of langage competence after graduating?
    Thanks again
