Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.
Student 1: Sorry. Sorry, excuse me. I'm just … just coming to sit over here. Phew. Hey. How's it going? So, what have I missed?
Student 2: Nothing. He just started around five minutes ago.
Student 1: Did he say anything about the mid-term?
Student 2: What?
Student 1: About the mid-term tests. Did he say anything about when he was going to hand them back?
Student 2: He's almost finished marking them, he said. We get them next Tuesday.
Student 1: I'm sorry, I didn't catch that. When do we get them?
Student 2: Tuesday. Next Tuesday.
Student 1: OK. Got it. Sorry. What page are we meant to be on?
Student 2: Page 34.
Student 1: Page … 34. Oh, wait. I don't have my textbook. Can I … share with you? Wow. This is hard stuff.
Student 2: Mmm.
Student 1: What does SEO mean?
Student 2: What?
Student 1: SEO. This is all about SEO but he hasn't said what it means.
Student 2: Search engine optimisation. How to appear on internet searches.
Student 1: Internet searches. Right. Right. OK.
Student 2: He said what it meant.
Student 1: What?
Student 2: He explained it before you got here.
Student 1: Oh. Right. OK.
Student 2: Can you be quiet? I'm trying to listen to the lecture.
Student 1: So am I. Sorry. Sorry, one more question. What does this have to do with the American Revolution?
Student 2: What?
Student 1: I don't get it. Why is he talking about search engines in a course on the American Revolution?
Student 2: What are you talking about? This is a class on software engineering.
Student 1: You mean, it's not Early American History?
Student 2: You're in the wrong class.
Student 1: Oh, wow. Now it all makes sense. I'm so sorry.
Student 2: It's fine.
Student 1: Here, I'll just … excuse me. I'm in the wrong class. Excuse me. Thanks. Sorry.
one of the problems i always had in class was I fall asleep most of the time and it made me don't understand anything in class and then i was getting textbook of my classmates and i studied it on my own
When i don't understand what is happening in the class, i try to listen the lecture what about is. On the other hand, i ask to somebody what are we talking about. If, i am in the wrong class, i apologize to teacher.
actually i am 53 years old right now . and i can not give details about such cases. but off course it happened many times . and if i do not understand something , i was writing down notes then refer to a colleague to explain.
Normally I prefer ask to my teacher what I don't understand because usually they are ready to answer.
I always try to record the voice and listen it again and write all things. when I listen later, if I can't understand anything, I can search it on the internet or ask about it.
well honesty sometimes I prefer not to ask it anymore cause Im really shy but nowadays I ask the question briflely or search it on the internet
When I don't understand something in class I tend to keep quiet, because I am a shy person, but I search for the necessary information in some way. Perhaps in other books, or on the internet.
If I don't understand the topic my teacher is discussing, I usually try to ask my seat-mate. If not, I will try to re-read again the topic and ask my classmate to explain it further for me to better understand the topic.
Well, when I was in classes at the University and I didn't catch something that the professor was saying, I used to ask some of my classmates if they could explain me, but if they doubt about it or couldn't explain me the concept, most of the times I raised my hand and ask the professor to explain me what he or she had just said. I remember It was difficult to ask questions when the class was crowded because they couldn't spent all the class time answering questions, usually they used to leave the las 5 minutes of class to answer questions or listening for doubts. I prefer the professors whom give practical applications for the concepts given in class so the theory will make more sense for all of us.
Thanks for the lesson.
I will ask my friends after class, and try to understand the rest.
