Currently I am in the second year taking German and Hispanic Studies. One of the main reasons I chose to come to Sheffield was the flexibility and study opportunities in the first year; there was an almost endless choice of different subjects to study as well as the basic German course, and after jumping into beginners´ Spanish I am now studying it as half of my degree.
The second year course has been challenging, but rewarding and always exciting. It´s fantastic to have such a mixture of topics to study - this year I have learnt about the German media, `pop´ literature, Austrian culture and Freud, and I have surprised myself by really enjoying the translation classes!
The broad course and lively department makes German at Sheffield a stimulating and excellent choice for anyone.
