# moderncv two columns in a small part of the page

I am finishing my CV with moderncv package and it has 1.05 pages, something quite annoying. I have already shortened all margins, but I realised my last two sections (languages, personal interests) are wasting almost all the space.

How can I put this last two subsections in two columns, one to each other?

I've tried minipage and some other things but it seems that moderncv does not use them as it should....

A blind shot: \usepackage{multicol} ... \begin{multicols}{2}\section{...}...\end{multicols} ? –  yo' Feb 4 '13 at 16:33
@tohecz Well, it works, but messes up the section header, putting the text in another place and the line in the left –  Ander Biguri Feb 4 '13 at 16:36
You can use \cvlistdoubleitem{Reading}{Athletics} then you will have Reading in one column and the Athletics in the other. –  Harish Kumar Feb 4 '13 at 17:23

You can use \cvlistdoubleitem{Reading}{Athletics}to have Reading in one column and the Athletics in the other. Languages are better be left alone as the current format is more descriptive IMO.
