  • (alarm beeping)

  • (friendly music)

  • Hi, Bob the Canadian here.

  • As you continue to learn English,

  • you want to be able to talk about your daily routine.

  • In this English lesson, I will invite you along with me

  • for part of my day so that you can see my daily routine

  • and along the way, you'll be able

  • to learn how to talk about your daily routine.

  • So in this video, we'll go from the moment I wake up

  • until about the end of my work day.

  • This is part one of two videos where you're going to learn

  • to talk about your daily routine.

  • (alarm beeping)

  • The very first thing I do every day

  • is I wake up and then I usually press

  • the snooze button on my alarm clock.

  • When you wake up, it means you go from

  • being asleep to being awake,

  • but when my alarm first goes off,

  • I usually wanna sleep just a little bit more.

  • So I'm gonna do that right now.

  • (alarm beeping)

  • So the second thing I do in the morning is I get up.

  • When you get up, it means you actually get out of bed.

  • So I think it's time for me to get up.

  • The first thing I like to do after I get up

  • is I like to make the bed.

  • It's always nice when you have your bed made.

  • So after I get up and after I make the bed,

  • I usually use the bathroom.

  • This room behind me is our bathroom

  • and in English you can say this a number of ways.

  • You can say, "I use the bathroom,"

  • you can say, "I go to the bathroom,"

  • you can also in Canadian English say, "I use the washroom,"

  • or, "I go to the washroom."

  • This is the one part of the lesson though

  • where I'm not taking the camera with me.

  • I'll be right back.

  • So the next thing I do every day is make breakfast.

  • I usually fry two eggs in a frying pan,

  • I usually make myself two pieces of toast in the toaster,

  • and I make myself a mug of coffee.

  • That is a pretty standard Bob the Canadian breakfast.

  • So after I make breakfast, I eat breakfast.

  • There's actually two ways to say this, though, in English.

  • You can say, "I eat breakfast,"

  • but you can also say, "I have breakfast."

  • So I eat my egg on toast

  • and I drink my coffee from my favorite mug.

  • This actually says, "Love the World, Bob the Canadian."

  • This is from a friend of mine named Miroslav.

  • Thanks again Miroslav for the mug.

  • But again, every day I eat breakfast or I have breakfast.

  • The next thing I do is I use my computer

  • to check my email and to read the news.

  • I like to check my email every morning

  • and I like to read the news every morning.

  • I also spend a little bit of time

  • checking my social media accounts

  • like Facebook and Instagram and TikTok.

  • I probably spend a little bit too much time doing that.

  • So this next part of my day you are not invited to

  • because every day I take a shower.

  • There are two ways to say this, though, in English.

  • You can say, "Every day I take a shower."

  • You can also say, "Every day I have a shower."

  • I usually take a shower every day before I go to work.

  • After my shower, I dry off with a towel

  • and then I put on some deodorant.

  • After that, I get dressed.

  • I decide what I'm going to wear for the day

  • and then I get dressed and I get ready to go to work.

  • After I get dressed, I go back to the bathroom

  • and if I need to, I will shave,

  • but I don't actually shave every day.

  • But if it's a day where I need to shave, I shave.

  • After that, I get some toothpaste and my toothbrush

  • and I will brush my teeth.

  • So the next thing I do is I come back to the kitchen

  • and I make a lunch.

  • I don't like to buy lunch every day.

  • I don't like to spend money.

  • So I usually make a sandwich and I grab a banana,

  • and this will be my lunch for today.

  • So in English, we would say, "Every day I make a lunch."

  • We can also, though, say, "Every day I pack a lunch."

  • When you pack a lunch, it means that you

  • put your lunch in a nice lunch bag like this one.

  • So every day I make a lunch, and every day I pack a lunch.

  • The next thing I do every day is I grab my things.

  • When I say I grab my things, it means that I grab my keys,

  • I grab my phone, I grab my wallet, I grab my laptop,

  • and I grab the lunch that I made because I'm just about

  • ready to head out the door and go to work.

  • So the next thing I do in my daily routine is I go to work.

  • Every day at about 7:30 Monday through Friday, I go to work.

  • If you were someone who was in school though,

  • you would say, "I go to school."

  • If you are someone who stays home,

  • at this point in your routine you might stay home.

  • But for me, every day at this time, I go to work.

  • One of the things I like about my drive to work

  • is that there are no traffic jams, ever.

  • It takes me only 10 minutes to drive

  • from my house to the school that I work at.

  • When I get to work, I take off my jacket

  • and I hang up my jacket,

  • and then I say hi to all the other

  • teachers in the staffroom.

  • Hi everybody.

  • Hi.

  • Hi, Bob.

  • I put my lunch in the fridge,

  • I teach my first class of the day,

  • which is grade nine French, this is our textbook,

  • to a lot of students who are usually

  • very interested in learning a new language.

  • (student snoring)

  • Every day after teaching my first class,

  • I go to my teacher work area

  • and I grade student work with my red pen

  • and I plan my lessons for my next two classes.

  • After that it's lunch time,

  • so I eat my lunch and I talk to the other teachers

  • who are in the staffroom eating their lunch as well.

  • Hey, did you see that hockey game the other night?

  • I know this doesn't sound very Canadian

  • but I don't actually watch hockey.

  • After lunch, I teach my next class of the day,

  • which is computer class.

  • In computer class, I teach students how to make video games.

  • It is a really, really fun class.

  • And then I teach my last class of the day,

  • which is grade 10 French.

  • This is our textbook.

  • (student snoring)

  • And that's pretty much the end of my workday.

  • I usually put on my jacket at the end of the day

  • and I say bye, bye everybody, to all of my colleagues.

  • Well hey, thanks for coming along

  • with me for part of my day.

  • I hope you were able to learn

  • a few more English words and phrases

  • to talk about your daily routine.

  • Don't forget that next week,

  • part two of this video will come out

  • where I will talk some more about

  • the things that I normally do in the evening.

  • But I hope this English lesson

  • helped you learn just a few more English words and phrases

  • to talk about your daily routines.

  • I'm Bob the Canadian and you're learning English with me.

  • Don't forget to subscribe if you are new here

  • and give me a thumbs up if this video

  • helped you learn just a little bit more English.

  • Thanks for watching and have a great day.

  • (friendly music)
