  • Hi, Bob the Canadian here.

  • Welcome to this English lesson, where I'm going to continue

  • to help you learn to talk about your daily routine.

  • This is actually part two of a two-part series.

  • If you didn't watch part one, you should click the link

  • that is right up there and watch that one first.

  • In the first part of this series,

  • I took you from the moment I woke up in the morning

  • until the moment my work day was done.

  • And along the way, I helped you learn some English words

  • and phrases that you could use to talk about your day.

  • In this video, in part two, we'll look at the time

  • from when I am done my work day

  • until the moment I go to sleep.

  • So, once again, I'm going to invite you to come along

  • with me for part of my day so that I can help you learn

  • to talk about your daily routine in English.

  • (easygoing music)

  • Well, hey, welcome to part two of this English lesson,

  • where I'm helping you learn to talk about

  • your daily routine in English.

  • Before we keep going though, if you are new here,

  • don't forget to click that red subscribe button

  • and give me a thumbs up if this video

  • is helping you learn English.

  • Well, if you watched part one all the way to the end,

  • you know that I just said goodbye to all of my colleagues.

  • Goodbye, everyone.

  • Bye, Bob.

  • Bye, Bob, have a good night.

  • Bye, Bob.

  • And my workday is done.

  • So, even though I'm done my workday, and I can go home,

  • the next thing I usually do is I run some errands.

  • In English, when you say that you need to run some errands,

  • it means that you need to do things

  • like go to the post office, maybe you need

  • to buy a few groceries, and those types of things.

  • So before I run some errands,

  • I'm also going to check my email and check my text messages

  • because before I run some errands,

  • I wanna find out if there's anything that Jen might need

  • from town before I go home.

  • So Jen just texted me back and said that we need

  • some more bananas, but other than that,

  • there's nothing else she can think of that I would need

  • to get in town.

  • So I'm going to run two errands.

  • I'm going to go and check my mail at the post office,

  • and then I'm going to go to the grocery store

  • and get some bananas.

  • So I'm at the post office,

  • and I'm just about to go in to check my mail.

  • But I just wanted to mention once again

  • that if you ever want to send me a postcard,

  • my address is in the description below.

  • Many of you have sent me postcards

  • over the last year-and-a-half, and I just wanna say

  • thank you to all of the people who have sent me postcards.

  • It is very, very nice of you, and I love reading them.

  • So my post office box is down here on the bottom.

  • It's number 419 or 419.

  • Usually there's a few pieces of mail for me.

  • Let's open it and see what we have here.

  • Looks like a postcard and a letter.

  • So the postcard is from Victor, who is from Ukraine.

  • And Victor says, "Hello, Bob the Canadian,

  • "greetings from Ukraine.

  • "Thank you for uploading excellent videos."

  • Thank you so much, Victor, for the postcard.

  • Look at these beautiful stamps.

  • The envelope actually contains a card

  • from Sirirak from Thailand.

  • And the card says, "Happy New Year 2020.

  • "Hello, Bob the Canadian.

  • "I'm Sirirak from Thailand.

  • "I like learning English with your videos.

  • "Thank you for teaching me."

  • You are welcome.

  • And thanks, Victor, and thanks, Sirirak,

  • for sending me some mail.

  • I love it.

  • So when I pick out bananas, when I choose bananas,

  • those two verbs mean the same thing.

  • I like to pick out bananas that are yellow

  • and ready to eat right now.

  • And I like to pick out bananas that are a little bit green,

  • that I can eat later this week when they are ripe.

  • By the way, if you're from a country that grows bananas,

  • thank you for the bananas.

  • These bananas are from Ecuador.

  • Well, I got my bananas, but unfortunately,

  • they wouldn't let me continue to make a video

  • while I was going through the checkout.

  • So I really wanted to show you what it's like

  • to go through a checkout in a grocery store

  • and pay for your groceries, but I couldn't.

  • But, anyways, I did get my bananas.

  • So this isn't part of my daily routine,

  • but whenever I'm out running errands,

  • I'm always tempted to go to Tim Horton's,

  • which is a coffee shop in Canada, and get myself a snack.

  • But I'm trying to lose weight and stay healthy,

  • so I am going to resist the temptation.

  • So I have finished my workday.

  • I have finished running errands.

  • The next thing I normally do in my daily routine

  • is I go home.

  • It is my favorite part of the day.

  • So in English, you just heard me say,

  • "The next thing I do is I go home."

  • I could also say, the next thing I do in my day is I head home.

  • I go home and I head home are both very common phrases

  • in English, and they mean exactly the same thing.

  • So let's get going.

  • (car engine starts)

  • The next thing I do every day when I get home from work

  • is I say hi to my wife Jen.

  • Hi, Jen.

  • - Hi, Bob.

  • And I say hi to my kids.

  • Hi, kids.

  • - [Kids] Hi, Dad.

  • - [Son] Hi, Dad.

  • See, I really do have five kids.

  • After that, I usually go for a walk.

  • I try to go for a walk every day.

  • This is something that I do for exercise.

  • Some people go for a run, but I like to go for a walk.

  • But the weather outside isn't great,

  • and these are not the clothes I normally wear

  • when I go for a walk.

  • So I think I need to get changed,

  • or I need to change my clothes.

  • Those are two ways to say that you need

  • to put on different clothes.

  • So I think I need to get changed.

  • Let's do this really quickly. (snaps fingers)

  • There, that's better.

  • Now I'm ready to go for a walk.

  • You might think walking for exercise sounds easy,

  • but it's harder than it looks.

  • I usually walk very briskly.

  • I walk very quickly, and I walk for about 45 minutes.

  • After my walk, I usually get changed again.

  • I usually put on clothes that are a little more comfortable,

  • something like jeans and a T-shirt.

  • Let's do this really quickly too. (snaps fingers)

  • There, that's better.

  • After I get changed, I usually go back outside

  • to make a short one-minute English lesson

  • for my other YouTube channel.

  • If you haven't checked it out yet, I'll put a little link

  • up there that you can click on.

  • I think you'll like that channel as well.

  • I do short one-minute English lessons

  • every Monday through Friday, five new lessons a week.

  • It's really cool.

  • The next thing I do in my day is I make dinner

  • or I make supper.

  • We have two words for the evening meal in English,

  • supper and dinner.

  • We also have two ways to say it.

  • I can say, I make dinner.

  • I can also say, I cook dinner.

  • Tonight's meal is actually going to be spaghetti

  • with meat sauce, so I am going to fry some hamburger.

  • I'm going to then mix it with this tomato sauce

  • and these tomatoes.

  • Then I'm going to cook that up.

  • I'm also going to boil some noodles.

  • And so that the meal is healthy and has some vegetables,

  • we're going to have some cucumber,

  • and I'm also going to boil some green beans.

  • Jen and I usually take turns cooking.

  • Sometimes Jen makes the evening meal

  • and sometimes I make the evening meal.

  • But, generally, we cook a lot of food

  • because there's a lot of people to feed.

  • So everything's cooking nicely.

  • In the back frying pan here, I've fried the hamburger,

  • and then I mixed it with the tomato sauce,

  • and it's bubbling nicely right now.

  • The beans back here are just about to boil.

  • And I'm going to throw the noodles into this boiling water.

  • I should be eating soon.

  • So after I cook supper, after I make supper, I eat supper.

  • Whenever I eat supper, I try to make sure

  • that half of my plate is filled with vegetables

  • so that it is a healthy supper.

  • I do wanna apologize though.

  • If you're watching this video from Italy,

  • I know I'm eating spaghetti that I made with sauce

  • out of a jar and out of a can.

  • Sorry about that, I'm just not as good a cook

  • as I should be.

  • After I eat, I will wash the dishes.

  • I will also dry the dishes.

  • And in English, when we talk about washing dishes

  • and drying dishes, we actually sometimes say,

  • "Do the dishes."

  • So if I'm washing and drying, I can also say,

  • after I eat, I do the dishes.

  • As soon as the dishes are done,

  • I spend a little bit of time cleaning the house,

  • or cleaning up the house, or tidying up the house.

  • They all mean the same thing in English.

  • Because there are seven people that live here,

  • Jen, myself, and our five kids,

  • the house gets messy pretty quickly,

  • but it also gets clean really quickly

  • because everyone has to help clean the house.

  • So, after supper, I will probably sit on the couch

  • for a little bit just to relax and unwind.

  • I might turn on the television and watch the news.

  • I might just read a book for a little while,

  • or I might grab my laptop and just watch

  • a few YouTube videos or maybe something on Netflix.

  • As I'm sitting on the couch relaxing,

  • my kids usually go to bed one by one.

  • They're too old now for me to tuck them in.

  • And I don't put my kids to bed.

  • When you have really little kids,

  • you usually put your kids to bed and you tuck them in.

  • But my kids are old enough now that they can

  • put themselves to bed.

  • So usually one by one, they come and say goodnight,

  • and I say goodnight, and off they go to bed.

  • At about 10:00 p.m., it's time for me to get ready for bed.

  • I do a few things to get ready for bed.

  • I usually brush my teeth.

  • I use the bathroom.

  • You're still not invited in, by the way.

  • And then I put on my pajamas, and I get into bed.

  • So one of the last things I do in my daily routine

  • is I get into bed.

  • After I get into bed, there's just two things left to do.

  • I need to set my alarm clock so that I don't

  • sleep in tomorrow because I need to do this daily routine

  • all over again.

  • And the last thing I do in my daily routine

  • is I go to sleep.

  • Well, hey, that was the second half of a typical day

  • in the life of Bob the Canadian.

  • Thank you so much for watching this video.

  • I hope that as we went through the second half

  • of one of my typical days, you were able to learn

  • some new English words and phrases that will help you

  • talk about your daily routine in English as well.
