Degree: Modern Languages and Cultures (Bachelors) - Durham University
I'm Katie, a student at Durham University studying Modern Languages and Cultures. I'm currently on my year abroad in Germany and am specialising in German literature an culture.
I'm more than happy to help with any queries you may have about German, Spanish, English Literature, or History, as these were my 4 A-Level topics for which I received all As and A*s. I can help with structuring and essay and mock exam papers, too. I'm also available for help with personal statement writing and mock interviews for university.
Feel free to book a 15 minute "meet the tutor" session with me fore be start, so you can get to know me a bit better and see if I'd be right for you.
Due to being abroad, my timezone is generally an hour ahead of UK time, but I'm free all day on a Tuesday and all afternoon on Wednesdays and Fridays as well as most weekends.
I look forward to hearing from you! :)
Hasta luego/Bis bald!

Language learning is a constant process which should extend outside of the classroom and into your every day life. Listening to the radio or watchig television in a foreign language is an excellent way to boost your listening comprehension skills as well as getting an insight into the current events and culture of the target language. Attempting some translation is always a great idea, too, especially as many universities offer modules in translation as part of their courses. Even if it's just translating an article online, the extra reading will go far in terms of expanding your grammatical and cultural sensibilities. More specifically, though, many companies across the country offer specific scholarships or study abroad schemes to help you visit the target language countries and add something really impressive to your CV. One example of this is the UK-German Connection Scholarships Programme which offers 2 week to 1 month periods of study and travel in Germany. The most important thing is to stay active with your language learning, even if that means just a 5 minute stint on Duolingo every day to keep the words and phrases ticking over in your mind.see more
