I've applied to study English Language and Lit. at Oxford in 2022 and I've heard you can learn languages on the side, so I was just wondering if this would be possible with Modern Chinese? It's something I've been studying throughout high school and I don't want to lose it as a skill. Any advice is appreciated, thanks! (I know I'm jumping the gun a bit since I haven't even heard about my interview, just thought I'd check.)

Hi! I am also applying to Oxford 2022 and still no reply…
Well as a Chinese native speaker, I would recommend you to learn Chinese via the textbook we use in China, called《语文》(‘Chinese’ , either edition is ok). This series of book will teach you Chinese from the basic characters to long fabulous poems. I really love my mother language and I hope you enjoy it as well.

Yes it is - I took Chinese classes at the Language Centre back when I was a student. They don’t have as many classes though compared to say French and Spanish.

See https://www.lang.ox.ac.uk/mandarin#tab-1730501 for details.

Thank you for the recommendation! I've been learning it at school for a few years so I'll definitely check out that textbook, always looking for more resources now that I've graduated.
