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!

When I have to study or plan a project with friends or coworkers I prefer to meet in one of our own places or homes because we can control the noise and have a quiet place to use. I remember when I was at University, we used to study at the park inside the campus or went to some of the rooms inside the library where it was allowed to talk.

Thanks for the lesson
Great site!

I think the university campus is a good place for this. At my university we can study in special classrooms to study and I like it a lot.

It varies according to different circumstances. for example if we want to make discussion we shall go to a coffee shop or home. if else we shall select a silent place like a library.
