I took philosophy at Cardiff Uni for my BA abd PGDip. I did sociology and social policy for a year, but I transferred out. I’m taking Philosophy at the University of Bristol right now for my MA.
But if you want to learn a language, you really don’t need an expensive education. You just need books, Skype (or someone to talk to), free time once or twice a week, patience, and a lot of determination.
I was raised in Wales so I had to learn Welsh and one modern language up to age 16, so I chose French. I learned British Sign Language at night classes when I was 17. I’ve been teaching myself Japanese for 4 years, and now I’m going to an evening class once a week. I think it’s great that we’re forced to speak 3 languages in Wales, I really do. It gives you a better understanding of how language works and how to express yourself well. Most English people don’t seem to have a very good handle on grammar or syntax. It’s sad because it’s their own language. They should take more pride in it!
