rtrgwnd Posted May 17, 2010 Share Posted May 17, 2010 I'm wondering how older students are handling the foreign language requirements in their PhD programs. I'm going into an English PhD program and have to show reading competence in two languages or high proficiency in one by the end of the second year. I took three semesters of French as an undergraduate and did well (As), but it's been over 15 years and I've had no practice with the language since then. I'm thinking that I'll have to start from scratch -- first year French-- and hoping that I'll progress rapidly since I do have some former knowledge of the language. I just can't really imagine going into a higher class having done nothing with the language in 15 years. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
