    We can fangirl over IR and East Asian languages together :cube:

    How fluent would you say you are in Chinese after your first year?

    I did AS Government and Politics, Psychology, Sociology, and English Literature (grades AAAB). I moved to Romania afterwards, so I am doing the Romanian Baccalaureate right now. My subjects are Romanian Language and Literature, History, and Logic (albeit I did have to take exams in ICT and English too, but they do not count towards my offer).

    Haha of course

    Erm I would say that since I study a lot outside of lecture time etc I'm much better at conversations than I was before. I've been getting 1sts and 2.1s for my oral/written Mandarin so it's good so far. I'm going to china in 2 weeks time to do further Mandarin language classes mixed with an internship for a month. So I should come back almost fluent haha.

    Ooo Romanian Baccalaureate sounds really fancy. You must be a smart cookie.

    That would make you... intermediate, then? And how do you study?

    Congratulations for getting that internship! :clap2: What will you do during your internship? As in, in what domain is it?

    The Romanian Baccalaureate is just what every Romanian student does :laugh: I do admit it is hard (harder than A-levels for sure), though, since in order to get what is deemed as a 'good grade', one must get like 90% of the marks. My offer from Exeter asks for 9 in the Baccalaureate, which is literally 90% of the marks in everything.

    You flatter me :blushing: You are probably smarter than me since I could never learn Chinese :rofl:

    Yeah I'd say I'm at an intermediate level.

    Aha thanks!! It's with a business in Dalian (North East China) which the title is "business incubator" so I get to learn the rules and regulations of international trade between China and other countries, tariffs and generally learning how the Chinese government operates because I really want to work in the Chinese government when I'm older. So I'll be doing my language classes from 9am-12pm and then have lunch and then do my internship for 5-6 hours everyday for a month. It's gonna be busy but it'll be totally worth it and will look lovely on my CV in the long term.

    Hahaha I can imagine. I always see how international education systems are slightly tougher than the UK education system, so whenever international students come here, they're so smart and it's difficult for me to catch up :lol:

    Chinese is difficult, but I'm in the process of re-polishing my German language as that's at an advanced level. I think I want to do another degree after my Mandarin and IR course and do something like German and Italian since I am a fond polyglot.

    Sounds awesome! :teeth:

    It is not that they are smarter, it is just that the educational system they come from is more difficult.

    How many languages do you speak and which ones?

    I want to learn a lot of languages too! :five: I only know two (Romanian and English) at the moment, though... :ashamed: Hoping to become fluent in at least two more languages before summer 2024.

    Crystals will form upon cooling
    Then filter it under reduced pressure :ahee:
    :king1:

    sprinkle a bit of ice cold solvent to finish it off and add a bit of drying agent (CaCl2 or MgSO4 etc.)
    :crown:
