Organising a group project

Organising a group project

Listen to people organising a group project and answer the questions to practise and improve your listening skills.

Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.



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!

Yes of course! I usually study alone when I need understand the matter and after that I study together with friends so we can share ideas.

The most suitable place for studying is the library. It's a huge place with all the books and literature that you need. We can do research for hours, and share ideas with each other. We can prepare our projects and we won't be distracted by nothing. The space is clean, large, and comfortable. Also near the library is a good cafeteria, to do our break time and enjoy the chocolate cake.

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.
