Hi! I'm starting Japanese Studies this year and I just wondered if any current language students have any advice that they wish they'd known before they started their course!
For example, what sort of stationary/equipment should I be buying? Squared, lined paper? Flash cards? Highlighters? Do I need a dictionary? Is it worth purchasing a Dictaphone? Is a laptop useful to bring to classes/lectures?
Are people on each courses quite close or is everyone mixed together for different modules? Do the tutors know the names of their students? Are class sizes large or small?
What modules do you recommend to take or stay away from?
And actually passed?
