Hey, Ravi!

My first week at the language camp has been full of emotions! There are so many young people from all over the world! Here are some photos of our group.

BTW, my roommate Daniel and me are preparing a very interesting project. It’s called «The music map». It’s going to be not only about the music preferences around the world, but also, about the connection of music styles with personality.

Also, we will have to make a playlist for the party to show what we have learnt …

I am thinking how to convince Daniel not to play the tracks from his playlist. He’s a great guy, but the music he likes is just awful! Too bad that his headphones are not soundproof! 🙁


  • What are Ali’s impressions of the language camp?
  • What is «The music map» going to be about?
  • What can be difficult for Ali and Daniel while making a party playlist?
  • What common stereotypes about music and personality/age/nationality do you know?

I wish I found some better sounds no one’s ever 1,
