    But we've got the 7th casus for calling out, a special form of a name when you're turning directly to someone. This is called wolacz

    That is vokativ for in Croatian.

    BTW, how do you read cz in Polish?

    Yep, ch, like hatch

    I'm not a specialist, when it comes to casus, especially if I've got to compare them with the Latin... I think I'll ask my friend, she studies classic filology.

    Heh, I've got to choose a course to do at Uni soon. At the moment I'm leaning vaguely towards French with Czech :p

    Second place is European Studies with French, third is Eastern European Studies with Russian/Polish/Slovene/Croatian/Serbian/Bosnian/etc. :p

    Well, one of them. The local Uni's don't seem to fancy doing anything normal, like French with French.

    But, don't you have any other kinds of courses? Sociology, law or something? Or maths? :p

    No, I don't do them. British system is weird: Year 9 you do 17 subjects. Year 10 and 11 (GCSE) you do abut 10-14. Year 12 (AS Level) you do 3-4 subjects and Year 13 (A-Level) you do 3.

    I do 3 at AS currently: English lit, French and Music.

    These are the courses at Uni I am limited to. :p

    Really

    Heh, I was randomly browsing through the British course list today ( http://ucas.com ) and nowhere in Britain does either :p

    What about archaelogy? You could graduate from university in Croatia and specialize further abroad.

    Heh, you should see all of the weird stuff they have for Archaeology on UCAS. It's mad. I think you would commit suicide just thinking about which one to take :p

    That's why political studies are the best [face_peace]

    Archaeology is also very cool, but it is not nearly as fun as palaeontology.

    Archaeology is more connected to social sciences, like history. I'm more interested into natural sciences like chemistry and biology. That is why I prefer palaeontology.

    Does Germany do it? Italy probably won't, the idea of dinosaurs offends the Pope :p

    I'm not sure if it exists as an course anywhere... I think it's just a specialization.

    Heh, that sucks. Now I've just got to figure out if the Prospectus was lying when it said I needed an A-Level in Russian to do the Eastern European studies :p

    I didn't have to know Russian at all when I wanted to take the russian studies...

    Yeah. What I'm looking for are courses of palaeobiology, I'll do a specialisation later.

    He probably burns evolutionists as heretics, so I wouldn't risk going to study it there. :p

    My point exactly :p

    Still, I'm wondering which language I can embarrass myself at for a "with" option :p

    the idea of dinosaurs offends the Pope

    Interesting point of view... And I bet Poles are more Pope-sensitive than Italians, so this should be considered by the Department of Education (;

    Walesa proposed giving Papa Ratzi Polish citizenship, as there are not many catholics in Germany. That beats all.
