备考雅思口语Part One话题思路解析：Daily routine 日程安排
What is your daily study routine? 你每天的日常有哪些？
My daily routine is kind of ordinary compared to some big potatoes. I usually get up at 7:30 and begin my study/work after breakfast. The rest of my daytime is all about study/work. Well, during the nighttime, things get a little bit different. I usually watch some movies or TV reality shows to loosen up.
Have you ever changed your routine? 你自己的日常是否发生了变化？
Three years ago, when I was a senior high school student, my daily routine was pretty packed. I had loads of textbooks to brush up and piles of assignments to finish. Just so exam-oriented. But, now, this article is from Laokaoya website, what I do on a daily basis is just one-third of my previous tasks. I think this is because I’m now a college student, and I’m supposed to do some social activities except for the assignments.
Do you think it is important to have a daily routine for your study? 你认为对待学习是否要有日常？
Yes, I do. I feel that it’s quite essential to have a daily routine for my study. The biggest reason is that my daily routine can allow me to have better learning efficiency. You know, with it, I wouldn’t forget to do some important tasks. And, I actually can have more time allocated for other things once my daily work is done.
What part of your day do you like best? 你最喜欢你一天当中的哪个部分？
The best part of my life is actually the time before getting up. You know, especially in winter, I feel a strong sense of resistance to stepping out of my warm and soft bed. I always thought nothing would be better than just staying a few more minutes on bed in the morning.
What part of your day do you like best?
你喜欢一天中的哪个时候？（注意这里强调的PART OF THE DAY直译就是一天的哪个部分，言外之意就是你喜欢一天的哪个时间段）
Well, actually I’m really into the end of the day, especially the time after dinner. Because this period of time is the official start of my own recreation. I don’t need to think anything about my work/studies.
What is the busiest part of the day for you?
Well, the busiest period of the day for me is actually the evening. We got piles of homework right after attending lectures and seminars of the day. This article is from Laokaoya website. Sometimes when things get stuck at the same time, I even have to burn the midnight oil to finish them, which really drives me nuts.
What’s the difference of routine between you and your teenager’s times?
I think we are pretty much the same because we have work to do, and so do they. They need to get up early and so do I. But, there’s a tiny difference in the activities we do. I guess ours are more mature than those they do in schools.
Will you change your daily routine in the future?
No, I won’t. I think my current daily routine works perfectly for me. You know, it allows me to have a relatively good work-life balance. Plus, I don’t feel much pressure doing executing it.
What’s the difference between people’s daily routine in the past and that in the present?
Well, in the past, people’s daily routine was casual and slow in pace. For instance, they usually took a long time to do some laundry, this was partly because they do have an automatic washing machine haha. But now, this article is from Laokaoya website, people’s daily routine is very intense and grueling. You know, people need to do more things than in the past, and sometimes multiple things at the same time.
What do you usually do on weekends? 你周末的时候都做一些什么？
I have many things to do during the weekends. For instance, I usually finish my assignments on Saturday at a public library near my home. Also, I usually hang out with my friends for a while at the central business district during the afternoon or evening to have fun.
