Linguistics, PHD, MA
Sample 1st Paragraph, Chinese Applicant
While I earned my undergraduate degree in my native China in the area of Accounting, I am making a career change to language studies, Linguistics, and second language acquisition because my passion lies in words rather than numbers, people rather than statistics. To this end, for some time now I have been spending all of my free time reading widely in Linguistics and related areas and I am now studying in France as an exchange student through this coming May, 2018. I hope to be selected for the especially distinguished MA in Linguistics Program at XXXX University Dublin on the basis of my facility and accomplishments with languages, nearing fluency in French as well as Korean.
