Teacher: So, now you've got the important information, it's time to meet each other. Everyone turn to the people next to you and introduce yourselves.

Cara: So, hi. I'm Cara. And you are?

Robert: Robert.

Selim: Selim.

Cara: Nice to meet you!

Robert and Selim: You too.

Robert: Nice accent. Where are you from?

Cara: I'm from Glasgow.

Robert: Oh, really? My mum's from near Glasgow, so I'm half Scottish.

Cara: Cool. Do you live in Scotland?

Robert: No, we live in England, near Manchester. My dad's from there. What about you, Selim?

Selim: I'm from Leeds originally but I grew up near London.

Cara: Are you both doing history on its own?

Selim: No. I'm doing history and German.

Robert: I'm doing it with maths, actually.

Selim: History and maths. That's different!

Robert: Yeah, I couldn't decide between arts and sciences. Maths doesn't help with remembering dates, though! And you?

Cara: I'm doing history and French.

Selim: I wanted to do French but German was easier, so I took that.

Cara: German is so hard!

That I would like some subjects depends on each stage. But I was in the university, I only wanted to learn my major- economic law. And now I want to learn English because of its importance. Whẹn You learn English well, you will have job opportunities, jobs which are paid quite high, you can communicate with foreigners, ,,, Learning E benefits very much

Well that's a difficult question hmm i like accounting when i am able to understand it like when my concepts are clear it becomes easier and then i can do my exercises easily and it becomes fun but it becomes boring and hard when my concept is not clear about a specific topic or question.
