....between learning biology in english compared to learning biology in german.

Am I right in thinking they both give you the same concepts, but biology in english will teach you the english terms for what these concepts are called and biology in german will teach you the german terms for what these concepts are called?


Is that the only difference?

But there is surely a difference in the knowledge you gain?

Like you won't know the parts of a cell in german, if you learn biology in english.

There is no difference in the knowledge. You are just learning the same thing but in a different language.

Use a translator if you want to know something in a different language.

But aren't you getting knowledge of what things are called in a particular language?

If you learn biology in english, surely you only know what biological concepts are called in english?

Do you speak both languages? It's true that if you learned it in English, you could probably not translate a whole biological text into German accurately. However if you learned Biology in English but then read a biology book in German, you would understand it in German even if you didn't learn it in German. This is only true if you are proficient in both languages. It all depends on several factors.

Oh no. I think you're that ancient troll that had a problem with language and said things like the word dog or apple meant different things in different languages. You're not that person are you?!

I speak 3 different languages, and have been taught biology in 2 of them... I don't think there's any difference whatsoever.

Well, that's not quite true. Different terminology, ways of teaching the syllabus, and which topics are studied can vary significantly.

Another difference is that the syllabus may be different.

Are you planning on learning Biology in German?

The syllabus is different \Rightarrow different technical terms, yes

I wouldn't bother with her Sean, she's a troll. I'm trying in vain to remember her original username to show you the astoundingly moronic threads she produced..
