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!

Hello Hosam Mohamed,

There is nobody called Peter in this recording! The only man in the recording is Robert, who has a fairly typical accent from the north-west of England. This is the region around Lancashire, Cheshire and Greater Manchester. Manchester is the largest city.

Hello abeer

It looks to me as if the task is working correctly -- let me explain how to make it work. 

When you want to add another sentence to a box, you have to click or press on the small white hand at the side of the word already in the box. If you don't do this, then the new world will stay but the old word will disappear from the box.

It's a little difficult to explain, so please let me know if you'd like me to explain it again.

All the best
