Barn ein Myfyrwyr

When I first heard the course name 'Romance Languages', I wasn't entirely sure what it meant. It was only in my second year when I took up a Romance Linguistics module that I truly understood the many links between the languages - that they all stem from Latin - that makes learning them together so much fun! I love noticing new similarities between the Romance languages and I was thrilled when I started Italian from scratch to see how similar the grammar was to French, which I'd already studied at school. Learning Italian has actually strengthened my French skills and my knowledge of Spanish vocabulary has made learning Italian a piece of cake. I love my course! Jade Cartwright

I think that the Romance Languages course is a really interesting course to do, because the core module in Romance Linguistics really helped me to gain a better understanding of the languages I was studying (French, Spanish and Italian), and it also shows why some of the English language is the way it is. The course enables you to major in three languages which is a plus side when it comes to your year abroad as you get the opportunity to live in three different countries. Jamie Weightman
