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!

I would like to study in a relatively quite room as I must concentrate on what I am learning for an effective result.

i would like to study outside with friends. in the healthy and clean environment we human beings are feel fresh and comfortable. whenever you felt comfortable that environment is prove best for us. thats why in my opinion when you sit outside in fresh environment and enjoy natural beauty of the world so it should be best for study because there we feel comfortable.

I and my friend usually choose library to study together. When we are having exams we will come there and discussion. It quite quiet so i think it's reasonable place. Beside, the coffee shop is a second choice. We can enjoy cake and drink while we study.

I prefer studying alone. I couldn't concentrate if someone is nearby me.

I like to study with friends in the empty rooms at my university's dorm. These are the rooms for students' self-study or discussing in groups. You can bring some drinks and snacks here but you must keep the space clean before you leave.

I prefer a closed separate room for effective studying, because you can dedicated your attention to exercise without distraction. But also nice place to studying is a park or garden, exactly if them rather is fine.
