    Recommend me a temporary Arts major!

    I think it's best if you ring or go and talk to the Arts department to make sure you get all the *correct* information. But if this is your second year, then I assume that the 24 of the first year's subjects you did last year will be probably credited, so you have 24 UOC left for your majors...

    Recommend me a temporary Arts major!

    I am assuming that you've already done 4 first year subjects already, since you said you are doing mid-year transfer. If so, I don't think you should do 24 UOC of first year subjects again in the second semester. This is because when my friend wanted to drop one of her 2nd year subjects and do...

    Yeah I know :S, I wish she went through the grammar stuff rather than doing pair-work most of the time. I wish we had Akahane-sensei or Fukui-sensei, they both went into detail about the grammar in tuts, which helped alot. Pair-work is good, but I thought the bigger classes dealt with more...

    Lucky! My hangul is so bad :(. As for Japanese honours, I wanted to do it too before, but they are too restrictive in their conditions to do it. Most courses I know of in Arts to do honours, you only have to do have a credit average. But for Japanese they want that plus distinction average in...

    Yeah, my friend did Korean 1A last year and had a Korean lecturer, and they didn't have dictation every week either. They were lucky because Gregory Evon was on leave last year for the first semester. I don't know how they would be assessing us this year since the language depts like to...

    I'm doing Japanese 2A and 2B and most probably Korean 1A and 1B depending on how I go with the placement test. I heard that Japanese level 3 has a heavy work load, with lots of tasks that's worth very little. My friends recommended to get a good partner for group work, because if you are...

    Which language is easier to learn?

    I did one year of German, three years of French at high school and I've done one year of Japanese and one semester of Indonesian. Out of those languages I would have to say I found Indonesian the easiest language. Since it uses the alphabet and grammar in the beginning levels at least was the...

    Which uni? If UNSW then and you have to enrol in INDO1001 (level1 indonesian). After that you sit for a placement test and they enrol/place you in the revelent level. It should be the same with the other unis.
