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!

In my school, I have to learn a lot of subjects. Each subject has its interest. But the subject I like the most is physic. Because it has so many experiments and engrossing scientific phenomenons. Besides, it also brings about very much reality application in our life. However, to study well physic, you must be good at math. In conclusion, physic is so hard but it is so fascinating.

What subject I like is English because studying English takes me to access a lot of information than using only Japanese. For example, I searched Japanese swords on google, and the number of search results with "日本刀" is 295,000,000; on the other hand, "Japanese Sword" found 361,000,000. Even though the things made in Japan, the search result in English is more than in the Japanese language.

I can't hear the audios, can anyone say why?

Hello Jopa,

I've checked the audio on the page and it is working correctly, so the problem is a local one. There are several things you could check:

1. Try accessing the page on a different device, particularly a laptop or desktop computer rather than a mobile device. If this solves the problem then you'll know it is a compatibility issue with your device.

2. Check the security (firewall, media permissions etc) settings in your browser and your system. Something may be blocking media streaming.

3. Check to see if local regulations are limiting access. Different countries and service providers may have their own rules as to what can and cannot be accessed online.

I hope those suggestions are helpful.
