Meeting other students

Listen to a group of new students meeting for the first time to practise and improve your listening skills.


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


Teacher: So, now you've got the important information, it's time to meet each other. Everyone turn to the people next to you and introduce yourselves.

Cara: So, hi. I'm Cara. And you are?

Robert: Robert.

Selim: Selim.

Cara: Nice to meet you!

Robert and Selim: You too.

Robert: Nice accent. Where are you from?

Cara: I'm from Glasgow.

Robert: Oh, really? My mum's from near Glasgow, so I'm half Scottish.

Cara: Cool. Do you live in Scotland?

Robert: No, we live in England, near Manchester. My dad's from there. What about you, Selim?

Selim: I'm from Leeds originally but I grew up near London.

Cara: Are you both doing history on its own?

Selim: No. I'm doing history and German.

Robert: I'm doing it with maths, actually.

Selim: History and maths. That's different!

Robert: Yeah, I couldn't decide between arts and sciences. Maths doesn't help with remembering dates, though! And you?

Cara: I'm doing history and French.

Selim: I wanted to do French but German was easier, so I took that.

Cara: German is so hard!

My favorite subject is English. Also, I really enjoy maths because I like how it feels to solve difficult exercises after having practiced a lot.

When I was a student, I really enjoy study Maths, I did a lot of Maths exercises. I remember I got the maximum point when I did the exam in three semesters. That makes me become a software engineer for now. And in the future, I will teach my children about Maths and Sciences

What subjects do you like to study? I like to study programming language, maths, physics and about the universe. I think I like these themes inherited from my father, because he is a nuclear physicist, really a scientist. He told me that if you want to understand the universe, you must know physics and mathematics.
