Transcript

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!

I can't hear the audios, can anyone say why?

Hello Jopa,

I've checked the audio on the page and it is working correctly, so the problem is a local one. There are several things you could check:

1. Try accessing the page on a different device, particularly a laptop or desktop computer rather than a mobile device. If this solves the problem then you'll know it is a compatibility issue with your device.

2. Check the security (firewall, media permissions etc) settings in your browser and your system. Something may be blocking media streaming.

3. Check to see if local regulations are limiting access. Different countries and service providers may have their own rules as to what can and cannot be accessed online.

I hope those suggestions are helpful.

When I was student, I liked to study chemistry and math, so my highest university entrance exam score was chemistry. For now, I like to study the programming language because I am a programmer.

What subjects do you like to study? I like to study programming language, maths, physics and about the universe. I think I like these themes inherited from my father, because he is a nuclear physicist, really a scientist. He told me that if you want to understand the universe, you must know physics and mathematics.
