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!

I like to study at the library with my friends. At the library, I can find many books for reading. and it is the quietest for studying. When I have the examination I always go to the library before to study with my friends. I when I go to work, I haven't many times to go to the library. But sometimes I also take my children to come to the library. My children like going to the library too

When I study with friends, I like to study somewhere comfortable, with some music and we can talk easily.

When I was at school we studied at someone's home or at the local kids' library. At the University we add students' cafe to these two options. Now I prefer to study alone.

There was a building inside the campus, where we could book a room. On the web page of the university library, we just had to select how many people, the date and time. The rooms were designed especially for that purpose with all the necessary equipement, wifi , projector, desks, etc.

I like studying at home, it’s more quiet there and I love it.
