Hello and welcome vĩ đại Learn English Vocabulary. My name is Jack and I’m making this podcast for you vĩ đại learn or revise English vocabulary. 

Introduction

Today, I want vĩ đại talk about my daily routine and look at some questions you can ask people about their routines and some verb-noun collocations. I’m going vĩ đại bởi this in the size of an interview. The language I focus on in this podcast is aimed at B1, though much of it will be revision. I have added some more advanced phrases too.

So the first question is what time do you get up? There are only a few question forms in English. This one, a question size, auxiliary verb, subject, verb question is very common. In these questions, the auxiliary verb and subject connect together. Do you becomes /djə / or /ʤə/. 

Examples

Listen vĩ đại the question:

What time bởi you get up?

What time bởi you get up?  

Interview

Listen vĩ đại the first part of the interview now.

Michael: What time bởi you get up?

Jack: Erm, well … normally, I get up at about 7.30. I usually work quite late and I’d lượt thích vĩ đại get up later, but I’ve got kids and they are up early. 

Michael: 7.30’s not that early.

Jack: I know. I used vĩ đại start work at 7 when I worked in Indonesia. No. Actually, I got picked up at 7. I guess I got vĩ đại work about 7.30.

Michael: And what time bởi you start work now? 

Jack: Well, now, I work from home page. So it depends. I’ll usually kiểm tra my tin nhắn first thing, but then if there’s nothing wrong, I’ll have some breakfast and do some exercise before I start work. This week, I’ve been staring early, but not today.

Michael: Why not today?

Jack: Today was my boys first day back at school and my youngest’s first day in reception sánh I went with them vĩ đại drop them off.

Language focus

Let’s look at some of the language.

Wake up and get up are very similar. Wake up means stop sleeping. Get up means get out of bed. My alarm clock goes off at 7 sánh I usually wake up around 7, but I don’t get up till half past seven,

Other phrases for talking about morning routines are get dressed which means put clothes on. Have breakfast … notice we generally say have breakfast. You can say eat breakfast, but I think have breakfast is a bit more common. You can also have a wash, have a shower, have a shave, but brush your teeth. I also lượt thích vĩ đại do some exercise in the morning before I start work.

The next question is when bởi you normally + a verb. This is the same size as the first question sánh the bởi you becomes /djə/ or /ʤə/. It sort of joins vĩ đại the question word when:

When bởi you

When bởi you

Listen vĩ đại the next part of the interview

Interview part 2

Michael: When bởi you normally start work?

Jack: Like I said, it varies, but normally, I’d say around 9. I’m working on a few different projects at the moment sánh I have vĩ đại be careful with my time. 

Michael: Do you take breaks during the working day?

Jack: Not really. I tend to work through most days. If I’m feeling tired in the afternoon, I might take a mid-afternoon tea break and see if I can get my wife vĩ đại sit down for a chat with mạ, but a lot of the time, I’ve got sánh much vĩ đại bởi that I pretty much stay at my desk all day.

Michael: What about lunch? When bởi you normally stop for lunch? You bởi stop for lunch, don’t you? 

Jack: Sometimes I’ll stop. Sometimes, I’ll grab an oat bar and an táo and bring it back vĩ đại my desk. 

Michael: And what time bởi you knock off

Jack: Again, it really depends how busy I am. Recently, I’ve been working till I hear a little knock at my door and it’s one of my boys calling mạ vĩ đại dinner.

Michael: That’s not great.

Jack: No. I need vĩ đại slow down a bit and be a bit more disciplined with my time.  

Language focus 2

Let’s look at some of the language.

I said start work. I work from home page sánh I don’t have vĩ đại travel. My work starts when I turn on my computer. Most people don’t work from home page sánh they might talk about the time they get vĩ đại work. This is interesting. You can say you are at work when you are working, even if you work outside and not in a fixed place. If I was a police officer and wal   king in the street somewhere and my friend phoned mạ up, I could say: sorry, I can’t come out, I’m at work. What’s interesting is as I work from home page, I never say this. I can only say I’m working.

During the day, you can have a break or take a break. I think vĩ đại take a break is slightly more common, but have a break is used a lot as well. 

At lunchtime, you can have lunch. It’s normal vĩ đại ask someone what time bởi you have lunch? In the interview, I asked: when bởi you normally stop for lunch? You can stop for a break as well. You could say: I think we should stop for a break and come back here in 10 minutes. It’s a bit more decisive phàn nàn simply have a break. 

To ask what time I finish work, I used the verb vĩ đại knock off. This phrasal verb has many meanings. In this situation, it means vĩ đại stop working for the day. It’s informal, but well used in British English. 

I used three more bits of language that I’d lượt thích vĩ đại highlight. I used Like I said, vĩ đại stress that I was repeating something. Like I said earlier … Like I said this morning …

I said I tend vĩ đại work through. To tend vĩ đại something in his sense means vĩ đại normally bởi something or regularly behave in a certain way, for something vĩ đại be likely. So I tend vĩ đại lose my keys if I don’t put them in a little bowl by the front door.

The last phrase is pretty much – this means very nearly, but it’s much more informal and I use it a lot. I pretty much use it all the time.

Listen vĩ đại the whole interview again now vĩ đại hear the language I’ve spoken about in context.
