So for me...

Mathematics - FP1-3 M2(-3) S2-3
Spanish - AS

Might read through some Chem and Physics, nothing extremely heavy though

Spoiler:

I'm a self-teacher of languages. So far, I've taught myself A-Level Japanese (took the exams and passed with a B) and Chinese (never took a test, but can hold a good conversation; probably because I lived in Hong Kong for 4 years!). Now, I'm teaching myself Italian, Norwegian and Korean.

In terms of other subjects:
A2 Physics (I never carried it on from AS at college)
AS Chemistry.

I'm unsure whether I'll take exams, or just stick with learning them for fun

Holy crap, you learning all those fp modules in holidays ?! .. U must be good.

Im just starting to self teach and see how it goes, what would be a good method to teach i your opinion ? (Since your learning so much you have some idea) . would it be to follow all examples in the text book or just a few and then try the past papers and question ? :yes:

Cool , im doing something similar to that, and ill see how it goes. Thats a good way since past papers test what you've really learnt.

Whats cardiff like ? Im from an area area which has mixed backgrounds (lots of Asians) and wanted to know if Cardiff is different , might take time for me to get use to it i guess. Anyway im looking for ward to it though either way. So far its looks like a nice city, on pictures atleast :colone:

I'm a bit of an omni-glot wannabe. All started with living in Hong Kong from 6 weeks old (and having to learn the 2 main Chinese languages used there to some degree), so I just went from there. I've so far got: Japanese, French, Cantonese, Mandarin, Italian, Norwegian and Russian to some level or another.

One day I might tackle Spanish, myself I'm a bit of a Ricky Martin fan haha and with what Italian and French I have, I get what some of songs say haha (Not even ashamed of my fandom)

I don't think I'll take formal qualifications... they're a bit costly these days!

Haha, I can't cope with incredibly long threads unless I've been in them from the start, like the 'Diagnostic Radiography 2013' one. And even keeping up with that is hard!

What would you do for Spanish? I'm just doing the Rosetta Stone programme at the moment to keep my fluency up, but people have told me I should try learning some grammar.... Can you recommend anything other than YouTube?
