AV – Reflexión

Do you remember what present tense do you use to talk about habits and routines? And what present tense do you use to talk about something happening now?


What is your daily routine like? What things do you have to do at work or at home? Take some notes about what you do every day: your daily routine. Then post a spoken message in the forum telling your partners and tutor about it.

Try not to read your notes. Speaking is not reading! It is normal to repeat things, to hesitate and to make mistakes. Here you have some advice:

  • Don’t write and then read. Make notes and then use them as prompts.

  • Check the pronunciation of difficult words beforehand.
  • Use the present simple, frequency adverbs and expressions.
  • Take your time. Don’t speak too fast.
  • Make it as interesting as possible. Include some surprising information.
