When you are involved in international projects you often compare your everyday activities or routine with your partners’ and find out what teens do in other countries. See Carrie and her timetable below.
In pairs, look at Carrie's weekly planner and answer the questions.
• What does she do on Friday afternoon?
• When does she have a French course?
• How often does she have lessons at music school?
• Does she have any activities at weekends?
Take a look at Carrie's weekly planner and try to describe her weekly routine.
Start with: Carrie has music school on Mondays from half past four to five.
Read about Carrie's daily routine on Wednesday.
Carrie gets up at 6:00 and leaves home at 6:45. She takes the 7 o’clock train and arrives at school at around 7:30. She usually finishes school at 2:30 and comes back home at 3:15. After lunch, she attends one of her afterschool activities, spends time with her friends, or does some school work.
Carrie has dinner with her family at around 7:00 and then she watches TV, reads fashion magazines, or surfs the Internet. She often goes to bed before 10:00.
In pairs, describe Carrie's daily routine for other days of the week in the same way.
Then, discuss who has a busier weekly planner, you or Carrie. Would you like your afternoons to be as busy as Carrie's?
What is your daily routine? What is your weekly routine? Write a short paragraph for each question in your notebook. Follow the instructions for paragraph writing in the first unit of the second chapter (page 3).
How would you translate these afterschool activities into English? Use a Slovene/English dictionary or an on-line translator. Write in your notebook.
