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!

Hi, at school I liked study Biology and History. I love animals, plants and environment. When I went university, Biology was my second graduate (1st is Dentistry). I love read history books, mainly about II War and ancien civilization.

My favorite subject is history. When i was in 8th grade, i participated in the regional olimpiad and took 2nd place. After that, history became an interesting and favorite subject at school. Now my profession isn't connected with history, but this is my liked science until now.

In my school, I have to learn a lot of subjects. Each subject has its interest. But the subject I like the most is physic. Because it has so many experiments and engrossing scientific phenomenons. Besides, it also brings about very much reality application in our life. However, to study well physic, you must be good at math. In conclusion, physic is so hard but it is so fascinating.
