Transcript

Cara: So for our group project, do you want to start this week?

Selim: Yeah, I want to start early so we have enough time.

Robert: Me too, but I've got a big maths project too.

Cara: How about we meet first to plan what we're going to do? Just for an hour.

Robert: Good idea, Cara.

Cara: When are you free?

Robert: I can always do mornings before 10.

Cara: Robert … Uh …

Selim: I'm sleeping before 10!

Robert: OK! OK, so when are you two free?

Cara: Wednesdays are good for me. But not very early, please!

Selim: I can't do the mornings on Wednesdays but I have 3 till 5 free.

Robert: I can do 4 o'clock, just before my maths class.

Cara: Great, 4 then. Where shall we meet?

Selim: The library?

Robert: I don't know. The library isn't a good place for a planning meeting as we can't talk in there.

Cara: How about the university café? It's near the library. We can talk in there. And eat cake.

Selim: Cake is good.

Robert: OK, so Wednesday at the café. I need to leave at ten to five to go to my maths class.

Cara: No problem. Planning will take less than an hour.

Selim: OK! See you Wednesday for cake.

Robert and Cara: See you, Selim!

i would like to study outside with friends. in the healthy and clean environment we human beings are feel fresh and comfortable. whenever you felt comfortable that environment is prove best for us. thats why in my opinion when you sit outside in fresh environment and enjoy natural beauty of the world so it should be best for study because there we feel comfortable.

I and my friend usually choose library to study together. When we are having exams we will come there and discussion. It quite quiet so i think it's reasonable place. Beside, the coffee shop is a second choice. We can enjoy cake and drink while we study.

I like to study with friends in the empty rooms at my university's dorm. These are the rooms for students' self-study or discussing in groups. You can bring some drinks and snacks here but you must keep the space clean before you leave.

The most suitable place for studying is the library. It's a huge place with all the books and literature that you need. We can do research for hours, and share ideas with each other. We can prepare our projects and we won't be distracted by nothing. The space is clean, large, and comfortable. Also near the library is a good cafeteria, to do our break time and enjoy the chocolate cake.

I like to study at the library with my friends. At the library, I can find many books for reading. and it is the quietest for studying. When I have the examination I always go to the library before to study with my friends. I when I go to work, I haven't many times to go to the library. But sometimes I also take my children to come to the library. My children like going to the library too

When I was at school, we used to study maths in mosque which was the nearest place for all students who did together. But, when I came to university it changed. Then we used to study a campus which was the nearest place to our faculty. Now I don't have enough time to get out with my friends. I just study by my own and the roof of my room is only the place I can study. I miss you all my classmates!
My mistakes! I really apologize, ... who studied together ... the only place I can study under of it. If I have another, please reply me. Regards
