foreign exchange student
living with you understands
your routine.
My Day

in the morning. I have social
studies, English and physical

My Day
• Intermediate:
– I have breakfast at 7:00 and then I take
the bus to school. Do you eat breakfast?
My morning classes are math, science
and French. My afternoon classes are
social studies, English and physical
education. My class schedule stays the
same each day. After school, I practice
baseball. Finally, I go home at 5:15.
My Day
• Pre-advanced:
–I leave the house at 7:00. I walk to
school and arrive at 7:30, since my
parents won’t let me drive. My first
class is math. Then, I have science
and French. During the afternoon, I
have social studies, English and
physical education. My favorite
class is French because it is
interesting and fun. My schedule
doesn’t change each day like yours.
After school, I have baseball
practice. I usually get home at 5:15.
