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!

Hello Britishcouncil.org, when I do the exercise with task 1. I can not put right phrases in a group, I can put one phrase in a group and I can not finish this task. please help me, thanks
Hello Christopher, The task uses a click-click mechanism rather than drag and drop. Click on the item, then click on the group to add it. To add a second item, follow the same procedure but be careful to click on the group title (it will probably be a darker colour). If you click on an existing item then you will swap it out; if you click on the group title then you will add a new item. ~ Peter The LearnEnglish Team

I am doing geography, GEOLOGY AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE. I am doing them with English. I believe that fluency in English is one of the parameters of the international literacy . Actually the ability to READ, WRITE, and COMMUNICATE connects people and empowers them to achieve things they never thought possible. The British council provides us the best and perfect knowledge of English. I really appreciate it.
