    I've actually emailed Hospitality to try and get moved. It's not that I don't like the French, it's just that I'd feel so left out if everyone was speaking French and I wouldn't be able to join in on the conversation
    I think you have a reasonable concern there though tbh

    It will be the second time you've changed accommodation though won't it?

    Ah! Mine too! but mine doesn't show my chosen modules.. Should I be worried? I'm not sure if my module selections can be taken together.

    Technically yes, but I had no choice the first time, they moved me because they made a mistake.

    I'm glad you all find it amusing. :P

    I'm forever going to be branded as "The racist" by hospitalities.
    Aww, bless you! I think that's well rep worthy, lol. :yep: Hehe.

    Of course it makes sense, stop worrying about it and just ask to move :p: ...if you explain it like you just did, the accommodation people aren't going to think you're a racist! :rolleyes:

    The sooner the better anyway because there will other's wanting to change places as well. Go for it

    Hehe, they'll see you as some bigoted Daily Express reading UKIP supporter who they imagine spends his evenings grumbling how 'England should be for the English' and about his distaste for 'the frogs'! Or, worse, they could view as some kind of deranged young Jeremy Clarkson who doesn't like being in a house with them in case they all initiate a mass surrendering when the Russians invade.

    Seriously though, it's not bigoted (the French aren't a race of people) to worry about feeling isolated by living in a house where you're the sole English speaker. It's no different to feeling exluded in any other way, for example as a result of the tastes or interests of a group of people, though I suppose that wouldn't distance you from them in the way that not speaking their language would.

    Hey everyone, just ordered an NUS extra card for this year. I think someone else here has.

    During the preview before buying, was the card a bluish colour?

    Yep, there's something very wrong with being an idiotic, senseless right-wing halfwit like him (I don't mean to say that Gehenna possess these qualities, I'm just traducing the **** that is Jeremy Clarkson, whose fanbase is made up entirely of idiotic, unthinking, reactionary right-wing clowns who venerate the Sun newspaper and columnists like Richard Littlejohn).

    The Sun rocks. Boobs, funny stories, awful puns and full blown hysteria all together in one paper. Wonderful rag.

    GeneralMullet, how can a supposedly intelligent person read a paper purely to gawp at women's breasts? *Sigh* How crude.

    My parents get the Times (and thus, I read it).
