Unit 7 Lesson 2
Listen to this woman talking about her routine.
What's her score on the questionnaire?
Well ,I usually get to the office by about nine.
I always mean to get there earlier,but I never quite manage it.
On a normal day,I work until about five.
But if we have an important meeting--
and that's once or twice a month-I work later,until seven or eight at night.
I get 30 days' holiday a year,so I'm very lucky.
I usually try to take a long holiday in the summer,you know,three or four weeks.
Then I like to travel,to go away and see something different.
And I always take a week in February.
I go skiing then.
Unfortunately,I don't have time to exercise during the week,
although if the weather's nice,I go for a walk at lunchtime.
But I cycle or play tennis most weekends.
And in the winter I go skiing.I think I'm organized.
You have to be in my job.I go to an Italian course once a week after work.
The other evenings I meet friends.
We go to the cinema,or to a bar or restaurant.
Well,I don't smoke,but I do drink a lot of coffee.
I think I'm a very calm person.
I don't worry and I don't get angry very easily.
Do I ever think of changing my job?
Well,I don't think I'll stay here for ever,but I'm quite happy at the moment.
