Should I take Media Studies or German?
I’ve never studied either before, but next trimester I have room to take another interest paper.
I’m studying Psychology and Education and I want to become a teacher.
The German paper is an introductory language paper and the media paper is an introduction to popular media.
Which would you take? (I can’t take both)
Well, everybody, especially teachers, should understand at least one foreign language. But media studies sounds interesting. I’d take both at different times. You don’t stop studying when you’ve got your degree. Yup, I’d take media studies. There are plenty of ways to learn a language other than formal study, and some of them are cheaper.

Learn Chinese in China?
I think that maybe I messed up in my previous question and that it did not get posted.
I am looking to learn chinese in china this winter and after looking online after a good school I feel somewhat overwhelmed by the options of chinese language schools in Beijing.
The only thing I know is that I want to study Chinese in Beijing, as opposed to Shanghai or elsewhere. Does anyone have any experience of a good school?
If you want to learn Chinese in China, I recommend you to choose Peking University (???? in Beijing), Fudan University(???? in Shanghai). Both of them are the first class university in China.
By the way, you can also have a try of online school. I know a good place. Here it is:
german konjunktiv präteritum?
Is there any difference between er käme and er würde kommen? I understand that this is two way of building Konjunktiv II, but is one of them more frequently used then the other?
For example: Macht eure Tochter eine Reise an die Adria? – Nein, aber sie würde eine machen, wenn sie mehr Geld hätte. Is this correct this way? I still don’t really know the Präteritum form for many verbs, so it could be safer to use the würde+inf. form apart from hätte, wäre and other model verbs like sollte. Is that ok in German?
(if you have time for one more question: how do you build the Präteritum form? maybe you can cast more light on it, if explained in english, my hungarian course-book hasn’t done a good job with that.:)
Thank you in advance, if you could answer any of my questions.
can i use würde+inf. after wenn? as in:
wenn er zu Hause arbeiten würde, wäre
the form with würde is the most commonly used way to build a Konjunktiv II. wäre and hätte are on the other side the most forms for the verbs sein and haben.
the Präteritum is built 1) if the verbs are “stark” (irregular) a bit like in the english language, i.e. there are lists of verbs you’ve got to learn by heart ; 2) if the verbs are “schwach”, by adding a “t” after the verb basis -> mach|en -> mach|te
and yes, you can use “würde” in this sentence

Amazing Facts about Ukraine and Kharkiv- Do Your Homework Before you Go to Meet Single Russian Ladies
In Kharkov you will see ancient houses some of which were built 150 and 200 years ago and also ultra modern office builidings made of glass and concrete. This blend makes the city interesting an unique. There are lots of things to learn about the first capital of modern Ukraine and even more things to see here!
The year which is considered to be the date of the foundation of Kharkov or Kharkiv (in Ukrainian) is 1654. Back then the vast flat areas of Eastern Ukraine were not very developed due to the lack of natural fortifications, the hills that were present couldn’t offer a serious advantage against the invaiders so for hundreds of years this area was not populated densely. As the legend says a man named Kharko was the one who actually started the settlement which eventually grew into a modern Kharkov.
When you are in the city, you will have a chance to see the monument to Kharko (the founder of the city) which is only 300 metres away from the Mordinson office. The legendary city founder is sitting on his horse in the very beginning of the Lenin Avenue.
More than a third of the original inhabitants of Kharkiv are Moldovans! When our city was still a little village over 9000 men and women from Moldova were given a permission by the Tsar of Russian Empire to settle down in Kharkov (at that time a settlement of approximately 16-18 thousand people). As a reminder of those events there is still a residence area in Kharkov called Rogan, which a word in Moldavian. Not many people in the modern Kharkiv know about the fact that over third of the people who lived here in the very beginning were not Ukrainians.
There are few Russian words which don’t need to be translated, for example vodka, perestroika, glasnost etc, but then there is a Russian word which is very sad and scarry and which unfortunately became known all over the world because of Russian Empire, this word is pogrom. There is an interesting fact about Kharkiv- it’s the only big city of Russian Empire which never had a pogrom in its history!
One of the places you should see when you are in Kharkov is the Liberty Square. It’s believed to be among the largest squares in the world. Around it you will see few remarkable buildings, among them the Kharkov State University and GosProm. Found in 1805 Kharkov University was the first one in Ukraine, the only University which had 3 Nobel prize winners studying and working in it: biologist Ð†.Mechnikov, an economist Ð¡.Kuznets, physicist L. Landau.
Kharkiv served as the capital of Ukraine from 1919 till 1934, during those years the city was being renovated and modernized hastily and probably the most famous building in Kharkiv that was built at that time was the Gosprom.
The Gosprom or Derzhprom (in Ukrainian) was built during the late 1920-ies and was often referred to as the first Soviet sky-scraper, the original height of the builiding (63 metres) may not impress us now, but at the time when it was built it looked almost surreal and extremely modern. The solid concrete and good engineering allowed Gosprom to survive 2 attempts to blow the builiding up by the German invaiders during the WW2.
In the post war period Kharkov became an important scientific and industrial centre. Of course we will never know if it’s true or not, but I read somewhere that talking to one his assistants President Harry Truman once said: “At the moment we have 3 nuclear bombs at hand, those are for Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kharkov”- what a compliment Mr. President!
