What is your daily routine?


(Answer 1)


It’s nothing special. I believe my routine is similar to what a lot of people are doing every single day. Like, I get up at 6 AM, take a shower right away, then prepare my breakfast, and head to the office at 7:30 in the morning.  After work, I immediately go back home and cook dinner. After that, I read or watch a movie until 10 in the evening and hit the sack (go to bed) after. 


(Answer 2)


Well, I get up at 8 in the morning and that’s actually late for some people. Right after that, I take a shower and eat my breakfast. I’m lucky enough because my mom prepares my breakfast. Then, I start working. I don’t need to commute since I’m working from home. In the afternoon, I take a nap at two, then I go back to work till 6 in the evening. I have dinner at around 7 PM and have my personal time until I hit the hay (go to bed) at 10. 


Have you ever changed your routine?


(Answer 1)


Since I started working, I haven’t changed my daily routine yet. I’ve been religiously (doing it regularly) following this routine for 10 years now and I can’t complain. Perhaps, if I change my job, I may do some adjustments but for now, I’m happy with my work and my routine. 


(Answer 2)


Yes! I used to get up quite early last year because I was working in the office then. But because of the pandemic, our company asked us to work from home. And you know what, I realized that working from home is the best. It’s pretty convenient and I can save so much money. I just hope that this won’t change. (Smiling)


Do you think it is important for students to have a daily routine?


(Answer 1)


Personally, yes! Especially in this new generation where there are so many distractions (interruption). Students are easily tempted to spend so much time playing computer games or interacting on social media instead of doing their school work. Having a routine helps them become productive. 


(Answer 2)


Yes, I believe so because through following a routine students will understand the importance of finishing a task and not wasting their precious time on things that can’t help them develop skills or improve their character. When a student has a routine, he will be trained to become an organized person. 


What part of your day do you like the best?


(Answer 1)


I love mornings because they remind me of a brand new day. A new day to live life meaningfully; a new day to try again after failing; a new day to seize an opportunity; a new day to improve myself; a new day to be grateful. Mornings are the best!


(Answer 2)


The evening is the very best for me! It’s the time that I can relax after working like a dog (to work very hard). That is, I can watch my favorite drama series, sip some wine, and more importantly sleep. I think a lot of people can surely agree with me. 




Do you like to get up early in the morning?


Yes, I do, I’m an early bird! What I love about starting my day early is that I can do innumerable things such as doing housework, running errands, and many other things. And right after fulfilling all those things, I can always feel a sense of productivity. My time is always spent well.



I’m an early bird [expression] – refers to a person who gets up or arrives early

Innumerable [adj.] – too many

Running errands [expression] – to go out and do many things such as: buying something; taking or fetching clothes from the cleaners; sending mails to post office, and the like

Fulfill [verb] – achieve

A sense of productivity [expression] – being effective

What is your morning routine?


Well, first of all, I make the bed after getting up since for me doing that shows that I’m responsible and organized. Then, I take a shower to refresh myself, right after that, I fill my growling stomach with cereal for my breakfast.

And just before I’m ready to start my day to work, never should I miss brushing my teeth. For me, nothing makes me feel more comfortable and happy in the morning than wearing a confident smile.




Make the bed [phrase] - to arrange the bed coverings neatly into the original position before it was slept in

Growl [verb] - rumbling sound caused by hungriness


Tip 1: Since the question asks about a routine, the speaker uses the chronological order (first, second, then, right after…) of stating the things that he does in the morning.

Tip 2: The way the speaker ends his answer is excellent, he uses the construction “Nothing is...than…+ -ing form of the verb. This means there are no other things important than the thing being mentioned. This kind of expression is used to emphasize something really important. This sentence structure is considered advanced, if you can make this sentence construction correctly, you’ll surely get a good mark in Grammar.



Is breakfast important?

Absolutely! It’s considered as the fuel of our body, without it, it’ll be more than difficult to kickstart our day in doing the activities that we usually do all through the day. Surely, people who miss their breakfast feel groggy and become ineffective in working or studying.




Fuel [noun] - power

Kickstart [verb] - to start

All through the day [expression] - the whole day

Groggy [adj.] -  weak; disoriented

Tip 1: The speaker uses the expression ‘Absolutely’ instead of saying Yes. This is a good alternative in expressing affirmation. Other expressions can be: Definitely; Certainly; For Sure; Without a doubt


Tip 2: In order for the speaker to support his answer better, he states the effect of skipping breakfast. That makes his answer coherent as it surely supports to his reason ‘fuel of our body.’



Do you want to change your daily routine in the future?

To be honest, I’ve never thought about it but I’m always open to change. As the adage goes, ‘Change is the only constant thing in this world.’ So yes, I won’t resist change and embrace a new routine that I may do in the years to come. But for now, I couldn’t be happier doing the same things in my everyday life.




Adage [noun] - proverb; saying

Resist [verb] - to counter

Embrace [verb] - accept

In the years to come [expression] - another way to say ‘in the future’

(I) couldn’t be happier [phrase] - to be happy or content

Tip 1: The way the speaker starts his answer makes him sound so natural. Of course, there are some questions that are startling or surprising, you can always be honest to your feelings as it makes you sound natural.


Tip 2: The speaker uses an adage that connects to the question about ‘change’. Knowledge of sayings or proverbs always comes in handy from time to time during your IELTS Speaking test.
