Transcript

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!

When I was younger I loved studying Maths because I was smart with numbers, but when I grew up and went to university I preferred to study Sociology and Social work to help and advise disadvantaged adults and children around the world.

I like to know a little about everything. But history costs me a lot of work, the dates and the characters are complicated for me.

I've been studying science my whole life. I graduated from chemistry a decade ago. After that, I continue to study scientific subjects to improve my technical training about the scientific context. However, in recent years I felt the desire to read art books to enhance my personal knowledge. For instance, I buy history books about the 19th century, which are very interesting and useful to understand the events of the present world.
