Selim: No. I'm doing history and German.

Robert: I'm doing it with maths, actually.

Selim: History and maths. That's different!

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 started to examine a history of countries, a history of nations and global history, emerging process in economic and political growing, psychology and humane nature.
