Activity overview:

English conversation Lesson - 1st Day at the University ( Speaking about University life)

Blog : http://www.learnex.in/english-conversation-lesson-university-life

If you are studying in the university, entering a university or are interested to know about my two friends at the university then continue watching this Spoken English lesson. I am your English Teacher Michelle and we are going to learn how to talk to new ESL students at the university. This is one of the earliest English conversations between Billy and Jack at the university. When they first met each other the conversation was quite formal and introductory and so would it be, if you also meet your classmate/college mate for the first time at the university.

Conversation 04

Billy – Hey! So are you staying at the dormitory?
Jack – Yes, I ‘m over at the Terry Hall, what about you?

Semester- A half-year term in a school or university.

Credits – A course credit (often credit hour, or just credit or "unit") is a unit that gives weight to the value, level or time requirements of an academic course taken at a school or other educational institution.

Conversation 06

Jack – Hey! Billy, it was really nice talking to you. I think it’s time we go home.
Billy – Hey! Jack, It was nice talking to you too as well and let’s hangout soon tomorrow probably.
Jack – I will see you later, thank you for your time… Ba bye.

You know what this is not the end of their conversation – after this they became really good friends and talked about everything from professors to grades. If you want to know the rest of the story then I suggest you do watch my next English lesson on University Life.
