The working day

Level: Elementary (A1-A2)

Type of English: General English

Tags: work jobs routines and activities present tenses Vocabulary and grammar

Publication date: 02/01/2021

Students identify and compare some jobs and then listen to/read a text about a teacher’s typical working day. The language point is the present simple for daily routines, including negatives, yes/no questions and short answers. They activate this language by interviewing a classmate about their typical day and writing a short text. There is a short optional extension activity about pronouncing yes/no questions with a rising intonation.

Alice: My name is Alice. I get up early at six o’clock, have breakfast and go to work at a quarter to seven.
Alice: I get to work before eight, and then I make coffee! I work from half past eight until quarter past four, but I don’t really finish until five o’clock.
Alice: When I leave work, I’m tired but happy. I get home around six, and then I have dinner and take a shower.
Alice: I also work in the evening - sometimes I don’t go to bed until midnight!
Alice: Do I work hard? Yes, I do. But I love the children. And I don’t work in the summer!

The lesson is great but the audio is too fast for A1 students, I had to repeat it quite a few times before they understood it.
