Обсудим повседневные дела по-английски

Двое коллег (Liza и Michael) ведут непринуждённую дружескую беседу о повседневных делах на работе и в личной жизни. Они обсуждают, во сколько просыпаются, какие у них утренние привычки, что они едят на завтрак, какие перерывы они делают в течение дня и как они проводят вечера. Диалог также включает обсуждение вечерних занятий и того, во сколько они ложатся спать. Диалог помогает получить практические навыки в чтении и понимании простых оборотов разговорной речи. Кроме того он позволяет познакомится с повседневной рутиной и привычками в англоязычной рабочей среде.

Daily Routines in English

Liza: Hey Michael, what time do you usually wake up?

Michael: Good morning, Liza! I usually wake up at 7 AM. How about you?

Liza: Oh, me too! 7 AM works best for me as well.

Michael: That's great! Do you have a morning routine?

Liza: Yes, I do. After waking up, I get dressed, brush my teeth, wash my face, and then prepare and have breakfast. How about you, Michael?

Michael: Nice! My routine is quite similar. I also brush my teeth and wash my face, but I usually skip breakfast and grab a cup of coffee on my way to the office.

Liza: Ah, I see. Breakfast is an essential part of my morning to kickstart(1) the day. What's your typical morning drink then?

Michael: Just a cup of coffee usually does the trick for me(2). It helps me wake up and get going.

Liza: Fair enough(3). So, after your coffee, what do you do?

Michael: Well, once I arrive at the office, I check my emails and messages, make a to-do list(4) for the day, and then start working on my tasks. How about you, Liza?

Liza: Similar here. I also check my emails and messages in the morning and make a to-do list. I find it helpful to organize my tasks and stay on track(5).

Michael: Great minds think alike! Do you take any breaks during the day?

Liza: Yes, I usually have a lunch break around 12 PM. During that time, I eat my lunch and take a short walk or do some light stretching to refresh my mind(6).

Michael: That sounds like a good way to recharge. In the afternoon, what kind of work do you generally focus on?

Liza: In the afternoons, I usually focus on more detailed and challenging tasks. I might also have meetings or conferences to attend and collaborate with colleagues.

Michael: That's interesting. I'm often involved in team meetings and client calls during the afternoons as well.

Liza: After work, do you have any evening activities or hobbies?

Michael: Yes, in the evenings, I enjoy reading books, going for a run or workout(7), and spending time with my family. Sometimes, I also watch a movie or catch up on my favorite TV shows to wind down(8).

Liza: That sounds like a nice balance. I'm more into reading and spending time with my family too. It's important to have some relaxing activities after a productive day at work.

Michael: Couldn't agree more. Finally, what time do you usually go to bed?

Liza: I usually go to bed around 11 PM. It gives me enough time to unwind and get a good night's sleep before starting another day.

Michael: That makes sense. I try to stick to the same bedtime routine and aim for around 11 PM as well.

Liza: Well, it seems like we both have quite similar daily routines. It's good to know we share some common habits in the office!

Michael: Absolutely, Liza. Having similar routines can create a sense of camaraderie(9) and understanding. It's nice to have a colleague who follows a similar schedule.
