Modern Languages Reading List

Welcome Letter from Modern Languages Tutors

Dear Fresher,

Below, you will see the reading lists for your course at Lincoln College Oxford.

Please note which texts you will study in the first term in order to read them before arriving in October. It is essential to do this in order to allow yourself the necessary time during term to complete the written assignments. (NB: there is no need to read works by critics before term starts).

More generally, please make efforts during the summer to maintain and even improve your level of linguistic competence by any means available to you. For example, read newspapers and magazines in the target language as much as possible.

In order to prepare for your study of literature, please obtain and read one of the following ‘study skills’ guides before arriving in Oxford:

  • Phyllis Creme and Mary R. Lea, Writing at University, 3rd edn (Maidenhead: Open University Press, 2008).
  • Stella Cottrell, The Study Skills Handbook, 3rd edn (Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2008).
  • David B. Pirie, How to Write Critical Essays (London: Routledge, 2002)

We look forward to seeing you in October.
