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!

Hi, i usually study alone, in my room. I rarely study with my friends but, when i study with them, we study at my friend's house . Sometimes we study together in the library.

I prefer to study with my colleagues at home or maybe at the university garden.

I like study alone but when I study with my friends I prefer silent places like house, country side or park. I sometimes choose the cafe.

I like study with my friend at home. We can call together and don't like meeting at the cafe it is very noisy.

No. I don't have time to study with my friends and we don't study the same subjects. I'm specialized in Tax Law and my friends don't study.

I don't like to study anywhere. I mean, I don't like to study. I think that we should learn... natural. You know like tree learns about your environment.... hahahahah. That's my thoughts. Lol.

When I was in high school there were a huge of homework that I had to finish everyday especially there was an exam tomorrow and study in a group was always the best solution. My friend and I came to each other’s house to learn together. It usually takes 3 hours or less when we study in group. From my point of view library is still fine to study together, there are so many books to search and it is quiet so you can concentrate on doing homework however you can not discuss loudly or bring food or drinks into it. How about a cafe ? Hmm...it is a bit noisy to me so study at home is always my favorite choice.
