    Is that the Cambridge position? I mean, I think I've heard that you do get native speakers studying their languages through MML, but do admissions tutors see it as an advantage as such?
    sorry I didn't mean it was the official party line or anything, I just thought it rather obvious that a native speaker would have an advantage in studying their own language, and conversing in that language in an interview, than someone for whom that language was not their mother tongue.

    howver, admissions tutors are surely aware of this advantage, and almost certainly teke it into account when it comes to interview performance, so I wouldn't worry too much; an appreciation of the literature and general understanding of lingusitics would presumably superceede fluency in the language in these cases.
