Kaja has answered a questionnaire to find out what courses to take. She talks to a counselor about it.

Counselor: The questionnaire shows that you want to work with communication. I think you should consider Media Studies.

Kaja: Okay. But I don’t want to take Math and English.

Counselor: I’m sorry, but you have to. They are required courses.


They work out a schedule for Kaja. Each term is nine weeks. The counselor tells her Ms Nash is going to be her teacher.
