I'm considering applying at Cambridge for MML in both French and German but I'm afraid I could get rejected because I'm a native French speaker and I have a really good German level because I've been living in Munich since one and a half year now (although I'm not bilingual because I still study in a French school). Does it harm my chances to get accepted for French and German? Should I apply for entirely different languages (I wouldn't mind: I'm passionated about learning languages) ?
Thanks a lot in advance,
MML at Cambridge as French native speaker. Watch

It is possible at Cambridge and Oxford for people to study their native language as part of a Modern Languages degree, but you have to have good reason for doing so (for example you might love French literature).

It will be looked at more negatively - and even if you did get in, it would be so boring because you spend a lot of the time learning the language and culture you're probably already very familiar with. I would just start a new language, German seems good but I would maybe combine that with a language you know nothing about/are interested in
