Making Plans for University

Tara and Paul are going to different universities in September. They are talking about their plans for moving…

Tara: You’re going to Newcastle University in September to study medicine, aren’t you Paul?

Paul: Yes, I am. I can’t wait to go! Which university are you going to?

Tara: The University of Liverpool. I’m going to study biomedical science. I’m so excited! Have you arranged your accommodation yet?

Paul: Yes, I’m staying in the student halls on campus. I’ve been talking to my flatmates already on Facebook.

Tara: Really? That’s amazing! What are they like?

Paul: They all seem really nice and friendly! Have you arranged your accommodation yet?

Tara: Yes, I’m staying in private halls near the campus. We should definitely meet up when we get there. Newcastle and Liverpool are quite close.

Paul: Yes, that would be great! Keep in touch and we can arrange to visit each other once we get settled in.

Tara: It’s a plan!
