Hi everyone,

-> 11 Things Modern Languages Students Know To Be True
Students choose to study Modern Languages for a variety of reasons: because it combines learning a language with literature, because it is an opportunity to travel, or maybe just because they are passionate about a certain country.
Whatever the reason may be, one thing is certain: Modern Languages students will all get to travel across the world in their third year while pretending to study hard.
1. People do not seem aware that you study both languages and literature.
2. Erasmus will not make you fluent in the language you are studying.
3. WordReference and JSTOR are your best friends.
4. People underestimate the usefulness of the language you are studying.
5. Hypothetical Clauses are a nightmare.
6. You will try to impress your significant other with your language skills during trips abroad.
7. Your will use WordReference and Google Translate for your homework and wonder how you will survive without it during exams.
8. Finding anything new to say about books that have been studied for 500 years is impossible.
9. People will tell you your degree is easy.
10. People will assume you want to teach or become a translator.
11. You will read most of the books in English first.

Please feel free to point out big mistakes in my messages in a foreign language. Thanks to your remarks, I'll be able to improve my level.
PS: Pls note that I chose American English for my vocabulary, grammar, spelling, culture, etc.  :-)
