it is difficult for me to hear exactly what two students said

Oxford is a wonderful city. I visited it this summer. There is an enchanting ambient, rich history, culture and politeness. The scenes capture realistic part of students' social life in ultimately friendly environment. No doubt, I am showing this to my students.
The follow up activities are also great. In next series, some of the old libraries could be inserted.
