I only have three this semester: Calculus 2 (Integrals), Chemistry, and Japanese.

There are two versions of chemistry, one for the core requirement, one for majors, the first being high school review, the second college level, but my advisor insisted I take both because of the gap, so this semester is the college level course. As for Japanese, this will be my second crack at it as well, as I remember almost nothing from it. I maintain that since there are volcanoes in Japan, it is justified, and not at all because I watch way too much anime.

Both sound very interesting! I wish I was studying something too, other than bobbin lace that is, and that's hardly studying. I miss syntax and linguistics.

Sounds like you're having a good summer, despite the mistake. May all go swimmingly for you in your studies, and for the Teacloth!

Another linguist! Did you know @GraceT and I are also linguists?

@Wodentoad: Always do what your supervisor says ... unless they're wrong! (I was actually 3 years older than my PhD supervisor so I would occasionally play the age card - comes highly recommended!)

I did not know, but I'm delighted to hear this!
@Wodentoad: I hope the Japanese goes better this time around! My cousin's daughter is studying Japanese at the moment, enjoying it very much.

Yes, I'm a linguist. My organisation is interested in obscure minority languages. I know a little bit about Austronesian languages - I can only speak one of them, though.

I have long wanted to learn Cherokee (my amcestral language) but finding opportunity is hard. Linguistics is a beautiful field of study!

I've only had a very short introduction to Austronesian languages, I've mostly dealt with and studied Romance and Germanic languages, and Tok Pisin.

Oh, that would be wonderful to study! But hard, as you say. I hope you may get the chance and that it will be the right time for it, for you! Finding opportunity is the thing for me too, trying to keep languages alive and finding someone to listen to.

My biggest failing is confidence. I can be flustered easily and often say a wrong syllable. I am working on that carefully this time.

I see, and I hope you'll feel your confidence growing so you won't get flustered as easily. I make so many mistakes in all languages I use, but I can't remember anyone being angry or irritated or even offended. Mostly, people either smile or laugh. That's in non-academic situations though. Are your teachers/tutors very strict?

I have heard the Spanish professors are at my college, but the Japanese professor is very sweet and friendly. She is also a native speaker so that helps. She is demanding when it comes to work, though, which will be a challenge.

I am amazed at people who can speak multiple languages... and once knew a gentleman that spoke 7! My daughter speaks 3. I have strictly a math & science brain and struggle with ENGLISH!

I take comfort in the fact that I'm a multi-crafter. I can switch between knitting, crochet, and tatting with relative ease. I can make friendship bracelets and I have done some weaving. I can cut AND fold paper, and I can already do western calligraphy. If I can be a multicrafter, I'm halfway to being multilingual already.

There was this one semester with Physics, Organic Chem, Statistics, and Number Theory, I spent most time on a required art class: Introduction to Drawing... too much problem solving. Tatting can preserve your mind.. something creative and totally your own.
