Plans for University

Andrew and Simon trying to decide which university to go to next year. They are talking about their plans for the future…

Andrew: I’m going to study history at the university of Leeds in September.  I really want to be an archeologist or a curator at a museum.

Simon: That sounds really exciting! You could even become a history teacher.

Andrew: Mm… I don’t think I’d like to be a teacher…. I enjoy learning but I want to do something more exciting! A curator explores ancient documents, clothes, and ways of life. I think that would be so much more interesting than teaching!

Simon: Maybe you’re right - that does sound exciting! I’m going to study English literature. I love reading books in English. I’m going to study at the university of London. There are so many things to do and see there.

Andrew: It sounds like a great choice, Simon! We’ll have to contact the universities to get some more information about all the things we can do there.

Simon: Good idea. I’m going to contact them tomorrow.

Andrew: Me too. We should meet up when we start university. Leeds isn’t too far from London…

Simon: Yes, definitely! We should make a plan to visit each other for the weekend!
