Don’t tell Cambridge I said that. Reply Its also an incredibly beautiful city. I spent two weeks staying in the university dorms beneath Arthur’s Seat a few years ago. I hiked to the top almost everyday. Reply Is Edinburgh in the UK? I thought it was in the frozen north, same latitude as Alaska or Dawson Creek in northern BC. Yes, it has a certain cold and stern beauty, but give me Cambridge (where I studied) any day. Reply Well, I grew up in the “frozen North” you could say. Minnesota may not be as far north as Scotland or Alaska, but its location causes -20 winters (you can pick either Celsius or fahrenheit for that, we got both). I’d be happy with either Cambridge or Edinburgh, personally. Reply You should do it! Reply one step at a time…but I’d like to. Reply But you can learn to surf in Cape Town if you go to Stellenbosch Reply Have you began at Stellenbosch yet? Or are you preparing to? I’m really curious about their program. I’ve talked with Steve Runge about it a bit and have seriously considered it – especially since I would be able to do much of it at a distance – which would be highly beneficial as a missionary. Reply Well, there is linguistics and there’s linguistics. Stellenbosch would be cushy. And cheaper. But I’ve never heard of their linguistics being anything to cheer about. Why not just get your butt on the field and start doing some work for a change? Reply Stellenbosch might potentially make it possible for me to do both – go to the field and work on a degree. Their strength is a linguistics degree directly related to Biblical languages. http://www.sun.ac.za/university/Nagraads/Postgraduate%20Prospectus%202007-8/Arts_Social_Sciences.pdf Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
