History and modern languagesWatch
Thanks in advance,
Hey! I'm probably not the person you want to speak to as I'm in Y13 applying for economics, but I was interested into doing a joint honours with a language for a short period of time and I can give you some advice as to what I learned. I'd spoken to a student at Edinburgh University and she said when she went into her first tutorial for the new language, everybody already had some basic understanding - probably about GCSE level - of the 'new' language (it was advertised for BEGINNERS) but that's nothing to be scared about. You have a lot of courage to be even considering this, so that shows the type of person/ learner that you are! Languages are so great to have on your CV. The reason I decided against it is only because I then wouldn't get the freedom I wanted with my economics degree, as your optional modules are then limited for some reason. Good luck with your application!
