    So I decided to create a thread for those who are either applying to study languages, are already studying languages or have already studied languages at Heriot-Watt.

    In my case, I have just firmed French/Spanish LINT as my course for September and can't wait to start it. :grin:

    Hi, I'm due to start in September too! I'm doing French and Applied Language studies – still thinking about my second language, but I'm leaning towards Spanish.

    I would definitely recommend you to choose Spanish! It isn't too difficult to pick up.

    Yeah, I'll look into it some more! I think the only alternative is German though, and I tried crashing that in sixth year only to give it up because I didn't have a clue what was going on.

    Aah, lucky you! I've still not heard anything back yet, hopefully in the next few days. I went for New Halls, mainly because I'm a tall guy so I kind of need the bigger bed, haha.

    Just got told yesterday that I'm getting an unconditional :ahee: for either French & Applied Language or Language (Combined Studies). Although I'm not sure what I should choose. Since everyone on this thread seems to be some sort of language buff - any advice? Like how different are the two courses?
