There is no British law equivalent that I'm aware of, and the bill to act system is basically the same anyway.

Law school is a four year undergraduate degree here. First year has to be taken with another degree but the other one doesn't have to be finished.

Heh, I just pulled out some of my old organic chem 2 tests to look at. I was quite pleased to get a B+. Organic 1 was a cakewalk.

I have the opposite problem: I'm immersed enough in Russian-language written materials that I often see English text and inadvertently trying to make sense of it as though the "p"s were "rs" and all the "c"s are soft and capital "H"s are "n," "B" is "v," and all that shit."


And then there's being a Russian native speaker, when you see a phrase like "xoxoxo" (generally understood to mean "hugs and kisses" in the West) and your animal brain reads it as HOHOHO. Bonus points if the original message is "sorry for your loss, xoxoxo".
