Preparation

Transcript

Cara: So for our group project, do you want to start this week?

Selim: Yeah, I want to start early so we have enough time.

Robert: Me too, but I've got a big maths project too.

Cara: How about we meet first to plan what we're going to do? Just for an hour.

Robert: Good idea, Cara.

Cara: When are you free?

Robert: I can always do mornings before 10.

Cara: Robert … Uh …

Selim: I'm sleeping before 10!

Robert: OK! OK, so when are you two free?

Cara: Wednesdays are good for me. But not very early, please!

Selim: I can't do the mornings on Wednesdays but I have 3 till 5 free.

Robert: I can do 4 o'clock, just before my maths class.

Cara: Great, 4 then. Where shall we meet?

Selim: The library?

Robert: I don't know. The library isn't a good place for a planning meeting as we can't talk in there.

Cara: How about the university café? It's near the library. We can talk in there. And eat cake.

Selim: Cake is good.

Robert: OK, so Wednesday at the café. I need to leave at ten to five to go to my maths class.

Cara: No problem. Planning will take less than an hour.

Selim: OK! See you Wednesday for cake.

Robert and Cara: See you, Selim!

When I was student, I liked to study with my friends at my home. Often I liked to study on own.

I prefer study alone. But if I have to, I prefer study at a lecture theater/classroom if students have permission from the university. The second choice is free/vacant and non private area for guest at one of student's/friend's house. Because I am female, I prefer study at student's/friend's house that is also female. I copy and past a part of the transcript above: Robert: OK, so Wednesday at the café. I need to leave at ten to five to go to my maths class. Cara: No problem. Planning will take less than an hour. Selim: OK! See you Wednesday for cake. Robert and Cara: See you, Selim! And I take out a line and paste it below: Cara: No problem. Planning will take less than an hour. From those parts I thought that answer for number 6 at task number 1 I pasted below should be "False". Robert will leave the meeting early. (False) But the right answer is "True". Is it because "in the first place" at the third sentence of Cara at transcript says, "Just for an hour" ?

Hello Santika

I think you are right. We've changed the wording of question 6 so that there is a more clear correct answer now.

Thanks very much for pointing this out to us!

All the best
