Preparation

Transcript

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 love to do coding because I am a full-stack engineer. I can create a scalable UI and backend. Also, I love to contribute to open-source projects. Until now, I contributed to two code bases.

I like to study so many subjects. These are maths, history, biology and languages like English or Chinese. But I didn't want to learn at the same time and I had different periods to learn them. When I was in middle school, I prefer Maths. That's why I was good at Maths and get reward with that. After this when I got in high school, I prefer Biology. Now I am happy and want to learn English and History a little bit because English can change my career to get success.
