    I think I had a native German speaker in my class at Nottingham, but they would probably ask the same question as everyone - why would you want to? Fair enough for the other modules which aren't language based, but for the language based modules, it's pretty pointless and ridiculous.

    Is Spanish your first language? I'm a bit confused. Were you born there/lived there for a bit? How long? How good is your Spanish?

    I'm guessing since the thread's called mother language, she is fluent

    that's what I thought - but it can't be right. Why would you want pay university fees to learn how to speak your first language? Doesn't make sense

    If you already speak Russian, why not do Spanish with another language like French or German? Then you would have Russian, English, Spanish and another language which would be more beneficial than doing a degree in your own language perhaps.

    One language must be at Advanced level. So I wanted to learn Russian and Spanish, or Russian and History

    So you speak Russian and English fluently?
    Are you studying any other languages at the moment? If not, you could take a language single honours which doesn't require any previous knowledge - it's normally the more exotic languages like Arabic/Mandarin/Japanese. Maybe you'd like to do something like that?

    I know Manchester has a module for native speakers in Russian, so that you could still improve it and you could also combine it with a wide range of languages from Arabic to Portuguese, so I guess it could interest you :yep:. But as said above, I'd rather go for two other languages. I chose Russian and Arabic, so that by the end of my degree I should be fluent in French, English, Russian, Arabic and can understand Italian pretty well.
