IELTS Speaking Part 1: Daily routine

1. What is the busiest part of the day for you?

I am a procrastinator, so I tend to get extremely busy at night, when all my work piles up. I love working at those hours though, because no motivation is as good as the urge to sleep.

2. What part of your day do you like best?

My favourite time of the day would be 7 p.m., which is when I come back from work and gather around the dinner table with my family. Seeing them after a long hard-working day can help me feel recharged, so I look forward to this time of the day the most.

3. Do you usually have the same routine every day?

Answer 1: I used to, back when I was still a student. Now that I have started working, I don’t have a fixed schedule anymore. Since my working time is quite flexible, there are days I can just sleep in, but there are also days I have to wake up really early in the morning.

Answer 2: Pretty much yeah, although there’s a slight change on Sunday. I usually wake up really late on Sunday and I don’t have any coffee either. I just want to spend my weekend in my warm bed.

4. What is your daily routine?

Answer 1: My daily activities depend on my work schedule, so nothing is fixed. The only routine I never skip is writing in a diary, which gives me time to reflect on my day.

Answer 2: I’m an early riser so I wake up at around 6 o’clock, then I have a cup of coffee 30 minutes after that before I go to the gym. I stay at home for pretty much the whole afternoon and I teach English classes in the evening.

5. Have you ever changed your routine?

Yes, lately I am trying to change my sleeping habit. In the past, I pulled a lot of all-nighters, and would often doze off in class during the day. These days, I force myself to go to bed early, and you know what, I have never felt so refreshed in the morning!

6. Do you think it is important to have a daily routine?

Answer 1: I honestly think it is essential to have a daily routine. Human bodies have a biological clock that works according to routine. By sticking to that fixed schedule, we can prevent our body from getting shock.

Answer 2: It’s not something that a person can’t live without I think. It’s important to me but it doesn’t mean that everyone should follow a routine everyday. It’s fun to have changes once in a while.

7. What would you like to change in your daily routine?

If time permits, I would love to make exercise a part of my daily routine. It’s not like I am not aware of the wonders exercise can do to my health, I just can’t seem to fit a workout into my tight schedule.

8. What is the busiest part of the day for you?

It’s the evening. All of my English classes are in the evening, 7 days a week. In the morning and the afternoon, I just spend my time relaxing by going to the gym or playing computer games.

9. What part of your day do you like best?

Probably the morning. I do exercise regularly in my room when the sun rises, and sometimes I go to the gym. What’s best about the morning is coffee time. I just love it because coffee keeps me active all day long.

10. What would you like to change in your day to day routine?

Well if I can, I want to cancel 1 or 2 classes in the evening because I really could use some nights to go around the city. Working 7 days a week is not a great idea.
