This sounds like a super easy subject, but translation is actually more difficult than you'd think. I managed to get an H1 overall, but for the first translation test we did, I only had a monolingual French dictionary and I struggled a bit and only got an H2B. The lectures are completely pointless and most of the information is relevant, but the few parts of the lecture that are relevant would be better off being taught during tutorials. The tutorials are absolutely painful because they are so long and tedious. One thing I really liked about this subject is the fact that we didn't have to do any oral presentations or anything to do with speaking or having to memorize a speech.

All tests are from French to English, meaning I found this subject to be a great French WAM booster. Good to make sure you understand the translation style your tutor prefers before assessments (e.g. literal or poetic)

Pretty boring subject, good thing is that you definitely learn a ton of new words, dictionaries will be your best friends.
