Organising a group project

Organising a group project

Listen to people organising a group project and answer the questions to practise and improve your listening skills.

Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.


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!

There was a building inside the campus, where we could book a room. On the web page of the university library, we just had to select how many people, the date and time. The rooms were designed especially for that purpose with all the necessary equipement, wifi , projector, desks, etc.

I like studying at home, it’s more quiet there and I love it.

Sometimes I prefer to study alone, but there is work I have to do with my friends or my group, it is not a problem for me

I tried to study with one of my friends, but I wasn't able to do it, maybe because I'm very individualist and my approach to learning subjects is highly personal.

When I was at school, we used to study maths in mosque which was the nearest place for all students who did together. But, when I came to university it changed. Then we used to study a campus which was the nearest place to our faculty. Now I don't have enough time to get out with my friends. I just study by my own and the roof of my room is only the place I can study. I miss you all my classmates!
My mistakes! I really apologize, ... who studied together ... the only place I can study under of it. If I have another, please reply me. Regards

I don't like studying with my friend

I don't like study with friends or in a group. From my language experience every group where I've gone are noisy, laizy or don't able to focus enough to work or project.
