Meeting other students

Listen to a group of new students meeting for the first time to practise and improve your listening skills.

Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.


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!

I like numbers a lot so my favourite subjects are mainly those related to them. It doesn't really matter if it's science or economy... as long as I deal with numbers, that will be fine!

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.

hi learnenglish team .i have a proplem with som task here .especially that Requiring to choose more than one choies .i dont know if that proplem was from my computer or from websit so plz fix it

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
