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 was in the university, I often study with my classmate at the University's library which has a lot of books we can refer to. Besides that, sometimes we discuss a group project at home.

When I was to university, I always studied alone, because I was more concentrated. When we had to organise a group project, we met at library or in empty classroom.

No, I like to study alone because I became more focused. I usually study at my room or cafe.

When I was in University I really keen on studying with my friend in library. But every so often, we studied at my home where we could feel comfortable each other. Moreover, we were easily to take time and discussed and joked a number of lessons.
