Please go to this link and listen to the story of a British girl who did not want to study at Oxford. After listening, think about these questions:
– What is “the Oxford University”? What Japanese university would you compare it to? Why?
– Why, according to the article, Elly did not want to study at Oxford?
– The word “elitist” is used in the text in a negative way. Can you think of situations / events, when “elitist” is positive?

Write answer to one of these questions (5-10 sentences).
