My Working Day

1.Read and translate paying attention to the active words and word combinations.

The typical day in our family begins at six o’clock when my parents get up. My mother starts her morning with going to the kitchen and preparing breakfast for the whole family. My father runs in the park every morning. When he returns he takes a cold shower and shaves. Then he wakes me up (and it is not an easy task at all I must say). It is very difficult for me to get up at once as I am not an early riser. In the morning I usually do some morning exercises and take a cold shower. It takes me about twenty minutes to get ready for breakfast. We gather for breakfast at about seven o’clock. It consists of some porridge, a cup of tea or coffee, toast or bread with butter.

At ten minutes past seven I leave home for university. I live far from it so I usually catch a bus or taxi. It takes me forty minutes to get there. Classes start at eight o’clock sharp. I usually have three or four classes a day. I attend lectures or have practical classes. Sometimes I have lunch at the university canteen. After classes I often go to the library to prepare for my seminars. I come back home tired, have my dinner and have a short rest or go for a walk with my friends. Two times a week (usually it is on Tuesday and Thursday) I go to the swimming pool to keep myself fit.

In the evening when all the members of the family are at home we have supper. We inform news and share our impressions about the day that has passed. I seldom go out in the evening on week days as I am busy doing my homework. Sometimes I have to sit up late. But when my homework is ready I relax in front of the TV set watching my favourite programmеs. I usually go to bed with a good book and read in bed before going to sleep.

2.Answer the questions.

1. When does the typical day begin in your family?

2. What do the members of your family do in the morning?

3. (At) what time do you leave for university?

5. How long does it take you to get to University?

6. At what time do your classes begin?

7. What do you do when your classes are over?

8. What do you do in the evening?

3.Carry out a survey titled”How to organize your day”. Ask your fellow students:

1)  how much time they spend: working, sleeping, washing and getting dressed, eating and drinking, shopping, travelling, doing housework, studying reading, watching TV or listening to the radio, performing other leisure activities, doing nothing;

2)  which activities they enjoy doing and how long they spend on them;

3)  which activities they don’t enjoy and how long they spend on them;

4)  if there is something they don’t have time to do or would like to spend more time doing;

5)  if there is some way they could organize their time differently and how.

Make notes and analyze the results of investigation. Write a short report giving the results of your survey. Use words and expressions like these:

None of…

A great many of…

Hardly any of…

Some of…

Very few of…

A large number of…

Not many of…

A lot of…

The majority of…

Use the following phrases for summarizing or generalizing:

On he whole,…

At first place,…

When you have finished your report, discuss it in the class.
