I have lunch at university and then I go to my afternoon classes. I do shopping on my way home, so I come home late. I do some housework and study the lectures in the evening. After I go for a walk. I go to bed at 11.30.

I go to university by my own car. It’s very comfortable. I have classes in the morning. Then I leave the university and go to my grandmother for lunch. She is a good cook and we eat lunch together. After I go back to the university. In the afternoon I study for an hour or two and then I watch TV. In the second part of the day I work because I need a lot of money.

I try to make my bed every day, but sometimes I forget to do it. Then I open the window, breathe in the fresh air deeply and do my morning exercises. I am usually in a hurry, so I do not have much time for that. Then I go to the bathroom, wash myself and clean my teeth. After that I dress and brush my hair. Later, I go to the kitchen, greet my family and have breakfast.

1.1 Read the topic ‘My daily routine’. Do you like Kate’s schedule?


Hi, I’m Kate. I’d like to tell you about my daily routine. The alarm goes off at 6:35 a.m. so I have just one hour before getting out of the house. After 5 to 10 minutes lying in my bed, I get up and go straight to the bathroom. That’s when I start my beauty routine: have a shower, comb my hair, brush my teeth.
After that, I have breakfast: a cup of hot chocolate (very healthy, I know, but I’m not a big fan of coffee) and one toast.
I usually get out of the house around 7:40 a.m. and go to work. The way to work usually takes about 45 minutes. I start working at 9 a.m. but if I get out of the house too late, I get stuck in traffic so I prefer to leave a little bit earlier and have time to spare.
I work from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. with a few breaks in between. I work in web marketing in the interior design field and my day usually involves writing blogs and managing social media accounts.
When 6.30 p.m. finally rolls around, I drive home happily listening to my favourite music.
I usually get home around 7.30, take a shower, and move on to my evening beauty routine. I have dinner at 8 p.m. During the evening I relax reading a book or watching a movie. I go to bed at 11 p.m.
