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!

The transcript "How about we meet first to plan what we're going to do?" .
I think it's different to the conversation.
Can Any one help me , thanks

Hello haidong99,

The transcript is correct there -- I hear those same words when I listen. What do you hear?

All the best,

Hi Kirk,
I cannot hear "to plan" in this script .
"How about we meet first to plan what we're going to do?" .

Hello haidong99,

I've double-checked and 'to plan' is definitely in the recording. 'to' is very slight -- it's almost like a light extra syllable on the end of 'first'.

You're welcome to download the audio and then play it at a slower speed in some kind of audio player. Perhaps that would help.

All the best,
