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!

I like studying the languages to understand & dealing with the different people now I learn English and I am going to learn german.

I like to study sport science and English .Because this two subject very similar .I was a sport player then I had a injury ,finished my sport carrier.I found perfect subject. I have passion this subjects.Sometimes I spend much time for sport science but doesn't matter I LOVE SPORT

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'm studying English and French. I did my master degree in German as a foreign language.

As I remember, when I was a high school I like Physical and computer. When I go to university I almostly like the automate electric and I think it's very helpful for my job until now.

What subjects do you like to study?
as far as I could remember, I liked to study Math, Physics and a bit of Literature.

Although I'm not a formal student any more I like to study history, programming(python) and music in my spare time but when I was a student I liked to study physics and computer science.

Thanks for the lesson.

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.

When I was student, I liked to study chemistry and math, so my highest university entrance exam score was chemistry. For now, I like to study the programming language because I am a programmer.

I like to study Math and Physics. But recently, I like language such as English and French.

I like study to electricity subject and I'm studying English with a professional teacher.
When I was studying at school I liked math and chemistry, and I didn't like English, because I thought I was never going to use it but now I need it, more than ever....
I like the science subject, but I´m not scientist. The chemistry help me to understand someone things. And now I try to learn History and I+D.
When I was in high school my favorites subjects were History and English because those two teachers taught really well. they were empathic with us.
Hi, I like studying economics and History. I'm doing graduation in this subject. When I went to high school , I like every subject but when i went doing graduation I take economics. This is very interesting for me.
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.
When I went to high school, I liked every subjects, but i prefered english, french and math. Now I'm a math's teacher in a primary school.
I like Math, and Econometric. It is very interesting. Also I like practice subjects, when you can learn some skills.
I didn't like studying any subject when I was a student. I only like PH and music class. I wish I was more interested in some subject as a student. anyway, I like studying language now and interested in a lot of things to learn
