Text "A day in England"

A day in England

In England many people get up at 7 o’clock because they start work and school at around 8 o’ clock. Before leaving the house English people almost always eat breakfast, usually tea or coffee? And toast or cereal although some people like a big breakfast with eggs, toast, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms and baked beans.

Lunch time is between 12 o’clock and 1 p.m. Lunch is usually a light meal, perhaps a sandwich and fruit and drink. Many school children take a packed lunch to school. School ends around 3:15 in the afternoon. Children then do after school activities or homework..

Some people have tea at 5 o’clock. Tea in this case refers to a light meal with biscuits or scones and hot tea of course! Then they have dinner later in the evening, around 8 p. m. However, many people leave work between 5 and 6 p. m. and then go home after doing errands. When the family is all home they eat dinner. Dinner is a hot meal, and for some families it’s the most important meal of the day. After dinner people usually watch TV or read before going to bed. Bedtime is around 8 p. m. for small children and between 10 and 11 for adults.
