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!

Overall, I studied French, German, and English subjects at home country University so my first diploma was awarded as a translator of world language at the University of Tashkent. But I should be honest, that I studied most time English instead of French or German. At the moment, I studied the technical subjects so I was awarded as a technical writer at the University of Germany. I am interested in technical subjects, like semiconductors or software programs.

When I was younger and studied at university I preferring to studying constitutional law! because I’d studied at a lawyer. But now, when I dedicated more than a decade to my career path to practicing law, my interests is became so broad. I dedicated a lot of time to discovered a source of law, their genesis and basis. I started to examine a history of countries, a history of nations and global history, emerging process in economic and political growing, psychology and humane nature. But, for me personally, most significant book is a Bible. This Holy Book contain all knowledges, which needed for every person.
