Hey I’m doing the Linguistics with Chinese or Japanese in September, obviously you posted a while back so hopefully you got the grades you need but I’m planning on teaching abroad as I’m already a qualified TA and I have a TEFL so I’m geared up for teaching but I really have always been into languages and love learning about how they work so I’m just looking forward to all aspects of the course :smile:

Definitely something I picked up more in my teens though I think the history and modern culture fascinates me to no end, are you doing linguistics + Japanese or just Japanese?

Congrats all for your offers :smile:

You might find some of the information in the below thread about year abroad destination unis in Japan by @Quick-use a graduate from the Japanese course at Edinburgh, quite helpful!
