You would like to know a little more about Elena’s daily routine. She is a fellow competitor in the Incredible Journey. The question: “What is your daily routine in Canada?” Listen to the recording.
Usually, I wake up at seven thirty in the morning, but I don’t get up until after eight. I get up, shower, and brush my teeth. In the shower I wash my hair and body. I get dressed. I put on a shirt, shorts and sandals. At nine thirty I go to the dining room and eat breakfast. I spend the day working on my extra studies. I go to the library to borrow Spanish books. I go to the mall and talk to people; I have a lot of fun. At noon, I eat lunch in the cafeteria. In the afternoon, I exercise - sometimes I play tennis or basketball. When I get tired, my legs and arms hurt. At four thirty, I go home and help make dinner. Then I hang out with my family until nine. I wash my face, brush my teeth again and go to bed. I look at my social media, and I send messages to my friends. I go to sleep at eleven o'clock at night..
What different times did Elena mention?
|OJO: Notice, in Elena’s explanation, when she talks about body parts, she doesn’t say “my face”, “my teeth”. In Spanish, we use el/la/los/las to talk about body parts (for example: Elena se cepilla los dientes)|
