Lesson 20 – My daily routine


(Emilie is Jessie’s French pen pal = la correspondante française de Jessie)



Jessie: Hi Emilie, how are you ?
Emilie: I’m fine thank you. By the way, I’d like to know what a normal school day is like here in England.
Jessie: Well, my alarm clock rings at 20 past 7 sharp, I wake up and I get up straight away. Then I get downstairs to have breakfast. I have cereals, tea, toast with marmalade.
Then I get up again to wash. I brush my teeth, my hair and I get dressed. Then I pack up my school stuff, and I’m ready. I kiss mum good bye and I go out. I walk to the bus stop. I meet my friends and we wait for the bus. Then we take the bus, get to school and get ready for the assembly at quarter to nine. Then we have different lessons and a break. Then lessons again and we stop at lunch time. We have lunch at the school restaurant. We don’t have much time because we have 2 other periods in the afternoon. But my friend Phil doesn’t eat at school. And we finish school at 3 o’ clock. Then I come back home or I make activities. At home I have a snack and I do my homework. Then I go out to see friends until tea time. Then we have tea and I always clear the table. After the meal I go to the bathroom, get undressed, I take off my clothes, I take a shower and I brush my teeth again. And I put on my night clothes. Then I watch TV for a moment or I play games or I ring my friends for a while and I go to bed. I read for a moment and I fall asleep. I never go to bed too late and my mother always comes to kiss me good night.
Emilie: Do you sometimes make dreams… of your boy friend ?
Jessie: Her… no, I don’t remember my dreams.
Emilie: You liar !
Jessie: Well, except my nightmares.
And I haven’t got any boyfriend.
