    Anyone else studying this course? What do you make of it so far. I'm very impressed... but it's
    quite hard work!

    Hi Euan

    I was wondering if anybody would ever post about L120. I went to my first tutorial, but otherwise
    feeling very isolated doing L120. Firstclass doesn't have a forum, which is hopeless for a language
    (i.e. communications) subject. Anyway, I think it's a good course, but like most OU courses I've
    tried has serious flaws. For example, I doubt my spoken French has improved any, because of course,
    you can't improve speaking a language unless you do it with someone! The workload is very high for
    what is supposed to be 7 hours a week, so I just don't do all those activities that say "write
    50-ish words on x".

    To counteract that negativism, my understanding of the spoken material is slowly improving, and
    unlike my O-Level done years ago, they are talking about real things. It's good revision for grammar
    (I would like more of that) and I've picked up quite a lot of vocab.

    Not looking forward to TMA3. But I expect I'll manage to put something together.
