Sorry to invade your thread guys, desperate Leaving Certer here just wondering about a subject in NUIM.
I'm definitely heading to NUIM in September to do the BCL Law and Arts course- for the Arts subjects i'm taking Economics and I am seriously considering this new subject 'Chinese Studies' as my second one.
Firstly, I have no prior knowledge of Chinese. I study French in school, not that great at it but will probably get a B3 Grade. I really want to do a Language with my course so I have international career prospects when I finish but i'm not really interested in French and German clashes with Law Modules on the timetable (i've checked the course website)
So i'm just wondering does anyone have any experience of the Chinese studies course? Is it intense learning, enjoyable? What are the hours/lecturers like? Are class sizes big?
Basically looking for any information you can give me regarding this Arts subject, I really think it's a language that's so important today and will become even more so in the future, so I think i'd like the chance to experience it (for at least 1 year anyway).
Thanks for any help/advice in advance!
