My working day begins early. I always get up at 6 o’clock. Before I leave for the university I have a lot of things to do. First of all I do my morning exercises. When doing them I usually open the window and switch on the radio. I like to do my morning exercises to music. Then I go to the bathroom where I wash, clean my teeth and dress. At a quarter to seven I am ready to have breakfast. While having breakfast I often listen to the latest news on the radio or look through the newspapers.

It doesn’t take me long to have breakfast. At a quarter past seven I leave for the University. As I live far from the university I go there by bus. It usually takes me half an hour to get there. I seldom walk to the university in the mornings because I have no time.

I am never late. I always come to the university in time. Between classes we have short breaks. I usually have lunch in the university’s cafeteria.

As a rule we have three lectures or seminars a day. Classes are over at about 2 o’clock. If I have no meeting I go home. Sometimes I stay at the university if I have some social work to do. Very often I stay at the university as I need a book or an article which I can get only in the reading room. Before or after classes there are a lot of students there. They read different books and journals, work on their reports or study their lessons.

After classes I usually walk home. I like to walk after a busy day at the university. When I come home I have dinner and a short rest. Then I do my homework. It usually takes me about three hours. In the evening I have supper and watch TV. Sometimes if I have time I go to the cinema. I usually go to bed at about 12 o’clock.

3.3.1.2 Text

 

I'm in the first year at the university, where I study English. My elder sister, Betty, studies history at the same university. Betty can organize her time wisely and I don't know what order I should do things in. I find it hard to get up on time, and usually I don't get enough sleep. I usually wind two alarm-clocks in order not to oversleep.

My sister, an early riser, is awake by 7 o'clock, refreshed and full of energy. She manages to have a quick shower, make her bed, put on make up, do her hair, eat full breakfast and set off to the university while I fight the urge to go back to bed. It takes me an hour and a half to get ready. I have a hasty bite and rush out of the house. Even if I catch a bus at once I still arrive at the university 15 minutes late and I always feel guilty because of it.

My studies keep me busy all day long. I have 14 hours of English a week. I also have lectures and seminars. At lunchtime I meet up with my sister and we have a snack at the university café. After classes I must go to the library where I spend about six hours a week preparing my seminars.

My sister and I come home tired, I always find excuses to put my homework off. My sister manages to do the housework and get down to homework. I like to go to bed early, but quite often I sit up late though I feel sleepy. My sister says that keeping late hours ruins my health. Of course, I agree.

My sister and I don't have free time during the week, we try to relax on the weekends. One of my greatest pleasures is to lie in bed and read my favourite books. My sister is a sporty person. She goes for a run in the park in order to keep herself fit.

I usually stay in but sometimes on Saturday night my sister takes me out to a concert or a play. Sometimes we go to a party or to a disco. But more often I stay at home & catch up on my studies. I wonder how I manage to spoil my leisure time.

Every Monday I think I should start a new life. I think that I must become well-organized & correct my daily routine. I make plans to go to keep-fit classes, to do shopping with my sister, to do the cleaning & to do a hundred good things. But soon I remember that I have to call on my friend in the evening & I put off my plans till next Monday.

There is a lot of statistics in it which could give you an idea of ‘an average lifestyle’. Look through the article and compare the standard of living in Britain with that in your country

 

What is the average Briton like?

 

The average Briton is a woman (51 %).

The average Briton lives in a house, not a flat (80 %). She (or he) has a bathroom (95 %), a refrigerator or a freezer (99 %), a car (69 %) and a telephone (90 %), a TV-set (98 %), a central heating system (83 %), a video-recorder (73 %), a washing machine (92 %), a computer (20 %).

The average Briton is between 16 and 64 years old. The average British man will die at 73 years old, while the average woman will live until she’s 78.

The average Briton is married (60 %) and more Britons than ever before are getting married. Men get married at the age of 28 while British women marry at 26. About 20 % of marriages end in divorce, though about half will marry again.

The average age for divorce, if you are thinking of marrying a Briton, is 36 for women and 38 for men.

The average Briton works 35-40 hours a week and has a 4-week holiday a year. At present 40 % of holidays are spent staying with relatives or friends and a quarter are spent camping. British residents take about 23 million holidays abroad every year. The most popular foreign countries are Spain, France, the USA and Greece.

What does the average Briton do in his/her free time? Well, he/she watches television. Every Briton over the age of 5 watches television an average of 27 hours a week. Other popular pastimes are listening to the radio or to CDs, gardening and of course the pub.

A day in the life of Jim Barber, Scottish Footballer

 

Jim Barber is a centre forward for Glasgow Rangers football club. He talks to Paul Sullivan about a typical day in his life.

 

I

 

I don’t usually get up till 8.30. On a match day I’ll get up even later. I’ll sit in bed, watch breakfast TV for a while, and then I’ll go down, get the mail, have a coffee and read the papers. I’ll have a wash and then I’ll get ready to go to the club. Rangers is probably the only club where the players have to come in every morning wearing a shirt and tie; it’s a traditional thing and I quite like it really.

 

 

 

Every day except Sunday, I’ll be at the club by 10. It’s a short drive but I’ll still usually be a few minutes late. I’ve a bad reputation for being late. And I’ve been fined many times. Each day of training is in preparation for the next match. We’ll do some weight training and some running to build up some stamina. Players work on particular aspects of the game but tactics are usually left till match day.

 

 

 

After training I’ll usually have a sauna and then we’ll have lunch: salads and pasta, stuff like that. In the afternoon I just try to relax. I started playing golf with the rest of the lads and I love horse racing too. My other great hobby is music which helps me to escape the pressure of work.

 

 

 

The best thing in football is scoring goals – and I am a top goal-scorer. It feels absolutely fantastic but I never feel above the rest of the team; if I did I wouldn’t last two minutes in the dressing room. Any success I have is a team success. My idol in the past was always Kenny Dalglish. My idols now are the other Rangers players.

 

 

 

The matches themselves are always different from each other. You go through a lot of emotions during a game but really it’s a question of concentration. You’ve got just 90 minutes to give everything you’ve got and take every chance you can. There’s luck and there’s being in the right place at the right time but you can’t make use of those without concentration and responsibility.

 

 

 

Sport writers often talk about age but it’s not something that bothers me. I’m 30 and feel fantastic. I missed a few games last year due to injury and my place was taken by a young player at Rangers. We are friends but he is a great threat to my position. My job is to score goals and if I don’t I’ll be replaced.

 

 

I try not to let football to rule my home life but my wife would probably disagree; last year we only got three weeks holiday. It’s difficult for Allison, my wife, but I think she’s learnt to accept it. She likes football and comes to the matches. I do like to go out and see friends but I always have dinner with my wife.

 

 

 

We’ll usually go to bed about midnight. Sometimes I do worry when I think of the day it all ends and I stop scoring. That scares me and I can’t see myself for any other team, either, but the reality is that the players don’t make the decisions. If someone makes your club a good enough offer for you, they’ll accept it. But I try not to let things like that bother me.
