My Daily Routine



As a rule I get up at half past six. I put on my clothes and go to the bathroom and turn on the bath taps.

Good health is so much better than wealth, so I do my morning exercises.

I get some eggs and a sandwich for breakfast and watch the morning tv news.



I like to begin the day well, so my breakfast is always a good one. I drink some coffee with milk and sugar and leave my home.

I have several classes at college. When the classes are over I go the library and search some additional material for my classes. I come back home around five in the afternoon.

On the way home I go shopping to get some food. At home I help my parents to cook a dinner and then we have it. After the dinner I do my homework for the next day. If there is some free time left I chat with my brother, play computer or read. I go to bed at eleven o’clock.

I just love my weekends. Normally we go to visit my grandparents that live in the country. We leave home early in the morning because it takes about three hours to get there.

I always have the best time there. I rest, walk, swim in the river if it is summer or skate during winter time. I like to eat my grandmother’s food and talk to my grandfather. We come back home late at night and I go straight to bed.

My usual day-off

I am very busy with a lot of homework, but I still have some household duties to do.

Everyday I do my room and my bed, wash up the dishes, dust the furniture, and usually go shopping after I have dinner.

Once a week I help my mother to do all other work about the house.

We do the laundry, clean the flat, vacuum the carpets, mop the floors. It’s not very difficult to keep the flat tidy if you do the rooms regularly.

Sometimes when my mom is away I do some cooking and washing up. I like to do the work around the house, that’s not difficult for me at all.

Dan’s hobby



Everyone knows that tastes differ. Different people like different things, different people have different hobbies. I go in for sports, I like to play tennis and I go to play tennis every day. Sport is very important part of my life. Many people go in for sports; they go jogging, swimming, skating, skiing, train themselves in fitness clubs and different sport clubs.

Physical training is an important subject in every school and University.

I have been playing tennis for seven years already. Tennis became very popular now. I like to take part in different competitions.

To be in a good shape I’m jogging every morning and do my morning exercises. I think everyone should do all he can to stay healthy and choose sport he is interested in. I do not understand people who say they like sport, but they only watch sport on TV.

If one goes in for sports he feels much better, looks much better, and sleeps much better. Your physical appearance will change too. You will be slimmer and trimmer. And what is even more important you will not get sick often. My favorite proverb says: “A sound mind in sound body”.


to jog - бегать

slim - стройный

trim - в хорошей форме

Lisa’s hobby

Different people spend their spare time in different ways, in other words different people have different hobbies. I think the most popular kind of hobbies is collecting. People collect coins, stamps, calendars, postcards, toys, boxes, stones, records, celebrity’s autographs and other stuff.

My hobby is collecting dolls in national costumes. I started my hobby ten years ago when my parents gave me a Japanese doll as a birthday gift.

Then my uncle two years later presented me a doll in Chinese costume.

Since that time I have been collecting them. Knowing my hobby my friends and relatives always give me national dolls as birthday or Christmas presents.

My collection is not big yet; I’ve got only 36 dolls. I have the dolls from India, Russia, Moldavia, Africa, France and other countries. Last year I was in Scotland and I bought there a doll in national Scottish costume. I like my hobby and my dolls.

They help me learn more about the countries they are from, about the history of costumes. I can follow the changes that took place in the development of national costumes in different countries. Now I try to read more about the history of national costumes.

Besides the collection of dolls, I’ve got many books and postcards. Very often our hobbies help us in choosing our future profession. This is just in my case. I have decided to become a costume designer and I’m sure that my collection of dolls, books and postcards will help me.

Sasha’s hobby

I’m always busy and I don’t have much time to spare. I am free only on weekends. A few years ago I was fond of collecting stamps. My mother was collecting stamps when she was young.

When I was five years old my mother gave me six albums of stamps. Then I continued collecting stamps. By collecting my stamps I learned about other countries, traditions, flora and fauna.

I am also fond of music and I like rock music, pop music, and classical music.

I collect compact discs of my favorite bands and singers.

I try to find out everything about bands and singers I like. I read a lot of music magazines, search the Internet and never miss MTV shows.

I think almost everyone collects something at some period of his life. My sister is collecting movies with Leonardo Di Caprio starring.

My father’s hobby is fishing. My mother likes gardening. Since I got my own computer my new hobby is computer and computer games. I spend all my free time with it. I buy new program disks and try them on my computer.

No matter what kind of hobby a person has, he always has the opportunity of learning from it. Learning things can be the most exciting aspect of a hobby.
