Organising a group project

Listen to people organising a group project and answer the questions to practise and improve your listening skills.

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


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 like studying in my house with friend. Because i think that is the best place where we can focus on studying. Its quieter than coffee or anywhere. We can exchange easily with each other about exercise without making noise.

When I was in high school there were a huge of homework that I had to finish everyday especially there was an exam tomorrow and study in a group was always the best solution. My friend and I came to each other’s house to learn together. It usually takes 3 hours or less when we study in group. From my point of view library is still fine to study together, there are so many books to search and it is quiet so you can concentrate on doing homework however you can not discuss loudly or bring food or drinks into it. How about a cafe ? is a bit noisy to me so study at home is always my favorite choice.

Soumis par raza.umar le lun 16/09/2019 - 18:50

we mostly sit in university cafe with friends so it is convenient to drink or eat something for us. Furthermore, we can easily fulfill our eating requirement and study as well.

Soumis par shahramuteng le ven 16/08/2019 - 18:59

I like to study alone. but if I have to. I prefer to study at home or a place which we can speak loud and have a good discussion.

Soumis par Santika le mar 30/07/2019 - 07:40

I prefer study alone. But if I have to, I prefer study at a lecture theater/classroom if students have permission from the university. The second choice is free/vacant and non private area for guest at one of student's/friend's house. Because I am female, I prefer study at student's/friend's house that is also female. I copy and past a part of the transcript above: 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! And I take out a line and paste it below: Cara: No problem. Planning will take less than an hour. From those parts I thought that answer for number 6 at task number 1 I pasted below should be "False". Robert will leave the meeting early. (False) But the right answer is "True". Is it because "in the first place" at the third sentence of Cara at transcript says, "Just for an hour" ?

Hello Santika

I think you are right. We've changed the wording of question 6 so that there is a more clear correct answer now.

Thanks very much for pointing this out to us!

All the best

I sometimes like to discuss the assignments or the test in the library. That is called "the studying group." I am so glad to cooperate with my classmate of signs of progress and methods before the presentation because it is a way to improve our speaking ability. In terms of the exam, I like to teach them and review more than one time. because it is a good chance to memorize the importance and the best way of assistance for my friends.
