Routines and habits

This lesson helps learners to talk about their daily routines.

Angela Ferarre

This lesson focuses on vocabulary to talk about daily routines and using the present simple in the first and third person. First, learners will review telling the time and days of the week. Language to describe daily routine activities will then be introduced, and learners will answer questions about their own daily routines as well as find out about their classmates' routines. Finally, learners will play a game to practise using the present simple in both the first and third person, and there are some additional suggestions for review and follow-up activities.


  • To revise telling the time and days of the week
