A day in the life of an international student
You are going to plan a day in the life of Carlos, an international student at a British university. Carlos leads a busy life and needs to fit a lot into his day at Uni. Many of the things he has to do are course-related but others are not. Can you organise his day for him so that he can manage to do everything he needs to?
Look at the list of tasks that Carlos has to fit into his plan for the day at Uni and decide when he should do each of them. Move each task into the appropriate time slot in his plan for the day. Use the 'check' button to see if you have organised his time well and then answer the three questions that follow.
1. How many timetabled course sessions did Carlos have to attend today and what were they?
2. What other course-related activities did Carlos need to do?
3. What non course-related things did Carlos do?
