Below are the utterances of the participants in WORD ON THE STREET Daily Routine Video available on PearsonELT.com.
Well I wake up and the first thing I love to do is to give my wife a big kiss before I get out of bed. After that I’ll make a large caffe latte and breakfast. And I work from the home office so I’ll get ready, I’ll have a shower, get dressed and so on and I’ll work from my home office on different projects… and try to get to the gym – if not every day then every other day. Both the wife and I are big big fans of some of the TV series you have here in the UK: like Master Chef Australia – we never miss it. We love food so we love to watch people competing about food. If not, watch a movie or read a book. I spend a lot of time online with social media as well keeping up with my friends; I have friends all over the world so that’s a way for me to keep in touch. I think the day flashes by and before I know it it’s midnight and it’s time to turn in and get to sleep.
On a typical week day we’d get up around 7 or so. Get my little girl out of bed and make breakfast, take a shower, brush teeth, maybe catch the news hopefully. Yeah, then get ready for school and for work. And after that my daughter goes to school and I go off to work for the day. And then at the end of the day I pick her up from school and come back and then we start the evening routine of homework, tidying up, letting out the cat and making dinner.
I normally skip breakfast because I’m normally in a hurry ‘because I don’t get up till late. And then I go to my lectures … probably snack throughout the day on like crisps, I dunno, chocolate bars and that. And then after my lectures go home, get ready, go to the gym – go down the gym for a few hours come back, have dinner. And then, yeah, I just chill out for the rest of the evening. And then if I go out in the evening, I go out about 10 o’clock.
I’m not an early riser so I tend to get out of bed around 7 in the morning and potter around the house a little bit until about 8.30 or so. Then typically I head over to the office around that time. [I] work very long days: sometimes I work until 8 in the evening or 9 in the evening and then I come home and all I have time to do is eat dinner and go to bed. And I do go to bed quite late, Typically after midnight.
