Hi everyone! I'm a second year undergrad history student studying at King's during my year abroad from U.C. Berkeley in the states. Next year, I will be taking two survey-ish classes (British and Euro history), which I understand are primarily for first year students. What size do these classes tend to be and how are they structured? Is it easy to access professors and lecturers for questions and general concerns?

Also, I've been placed in the Latin reading class (LR01) for the year. I am currently in my second semester of beginning Latin in the states, and will finish the basic grammar textbook by the end of the year. Will this be enough preparation? Is there anything I can do in the meantime to practice? (I'm having nightmares about walking into the class and everyone speaks Latin. Unfortunately, my vocabulary only allows for conversations like, "I killed the queen in the field with a sword." "Was your sword larger than hers?" "Yes, it was a big sword." Needless to say, I wake up in a cold sweat.)

Thank you so much!

This has nothing to do with your questions, but I hope you have a lovely time at KCL! I spent a semester abroad there in 2005 and I still miss it. =)

Thanks! If you don't mind me asking, where are you from and what did you study at King's?

I went to Barnard/Columbia (graduated last year) and I did the pre-med program in Spring 2005 at King's, and now I'm in medical school. =)

This is totally not helpful, but UCB rocks.

Also, would you be interested in joining nor_am_uk_ac? it's a community for North Americans at/applying to UK schools.

Cool group, thanks!

Heh, I most certainly am! I always tell relatives who visit the campus to wear blue and gold/yellow, and avoid at all costs wearing red and white ;)
