    J: Hi Tony! Good to see you at last! How are you? I haven’t seen you for ages. When did you arrive back on campus?

    T: Hi Jemma. Good thanks. I just arrived yesterday. I’m still feeling a bit tired after my journey. How about you?

    J: Oh, I’ve been here for a few days already. I arrived on Saturday. My first lecture is on 15th October and I wanted to get some books out of the library before then.

    T: Wow. You’re keen! My first lecture isn't until 21st.

    J: Oh! Lucky you! What are you studying again? I can never remember. Was it Media?

    T: No, Psychology. I used to do Media but I changed courses last term. What are you doing? French, wasn’t it?

    J: Yes, I’m regretting it a bit. I wish I’d done Chinese. I think it would be more useful.

    T: Have you got loads of reading to do this term? I looked on the student portal for the reading list this morning and it’s huge. I don’t know how I will manage to read all of those texts.

    J: Oh dear. How many are there.

    T: More than 60. I didn’t count them. What's your list like?

    J: Well, there aren’t as many on mine. We’ve only got 35 this term. They’re all in French though so it will take me ages to read them. I don't know how I'm going to manage.

    T: We’ll manage. Try not to worry. Have you got your tutorial timetable yet?

    J: Yep. They emailed it to us this morning. My first one is on Monday. When’s yours?

    T: Thursday. Actually, my tutor is really helpful. She gave us some study tips last term and they’ve really helped me manage all the reading I have to do.

    J: Oh really? Like what?

    T: Well, she said if you have lots of articles to read, for example, you don’t always have to read the whole article. Just read the summary.

    J: You mean the abstract?

    T: Exactly. It’s like a summary of the whole article.

    J: Hmm. I suppose that makes sense. You can just read the summary to decide if it’s useful. If it is, then it’s worth spending time reading the whole article.

    T: Exactly. She also said that you should take notes while you read an article so that you never have to read it twice.

    J: Well, that makes a lot of sense. I like that tip!

    T: Yes. But she did warn us that we should always write down the author’s name and the title of the article too because we’ll need that information for our references.

    J: For the bibliography?

    T: Right.

    J: Thanks for sharing those tips. I need all the help I can get this term!

    T: No problem. Shall we go to the library?

    J: Good idea.
