“Have you studied any foreign languages? If so, please list below.”

Oh heck yes I have!

Swiss graduate school applications:

“Mark your level of fluency in the following languages:”

    Love it!

    What languages does the Swiss application list?

      Bonjour Adriana! Well, the languages on the Swiss list were the Swiss languages: English, French, “German,” and Italian. And then they had maybe three empty spaces were could fill in extra languages of your own choosing (thank goodness!) High linguistic expectations over there.
