Debbie is an accountant in a large company in the center of London.I need to be in my office by nine o'clock so I usually get up at seven o'clock.I travel to work on"the tube ".That's what people call the underground railway system in London .It takes about fifty minutes.Usually,it's so crowded that I can't find
anywhere to sit.I just stand I'm always tired before I arrive at work.I don't like the underground!I spend all mornig checking numbers.Lunch is always simple.I often get a sandwich in a nearby sandwich shop or I just have some biscuits and a cup of coffee.Then in the afternoon,I return to the paperwork in the office.On Monday nights,I have dance classes.and on Wednesday nights,I go to the gym.I need to do that because I don't get enough exercise otherwise.On Tuesday and Thrusday nights.I have French classes.I work for a French company.so I think studying French will help me in my career.I go to the cinema almost every weekend.My friends call me a "Movie fanatic".Sometimes if the weather forecast is good ,my friends and I drive to the countryside for a weekend break.We like to visit nice,quiet places far away from the city.and go walking where there are no shops.crowds or the tube. Paul lives in small village in the north of England.I usually get up at four o'clock every morning when it's still dark.I live and work on the farm so I don't need to travel.After a big breakfast in my house,I walk out of the front door and I'm already at work.There are many things to do on the farm all dayWe don't have the same work hours that office workers in the city have.We do jobs when they need to be done and that could be early in the morning or late at night.I have cows,sheep,pigs and chickens on my farm.I also grow wheat and vegetables so there are many things to look afterIn the evening,I like to play with my children.I have two children,a boy and a girl.They are six and eight years old.I also like to study.Right now I am studying Chinese by distance learning ,I am very interested in China and it's my dream to see the Great Wall one day.I love movies.My wife calls me a "Movie fanatic".But there isn't a cinema in my village so I don't get the chance to go very often.I go about twice a year,usually when I go to London with my family.We take a weekend break there,when I am not too busy on the farm.My wife loves looking in the clothes shops and I like all the crowds and the noise.My son and daughter love to ride on London's red buses and they especially love to go on the tube!x
