Struggles of a language student

Whatever language you’re studying at uni, there are some universal struggles for us linguists…


Seeing that your timetable includes literature, history, business and law modules


You can’t go to socials because you have exams throughout term


Wondering if anyone can actually understand you in a foreign language


When the books to read are in another language


Either there’s no translation available…

Or somebody already took it


There’s also no film version


Literally everything’s in another language


You’re sick of people joking about oral exams


Wondering if anyone noticed you speaking Chinese in Spanish class


When people ask what you’re going to do with your degree


Learning a new alphabet


When you forget your native language whilst translating
