What do you eat for breakfast in the morning? Do you eat the same thing every morning?
I eat cereal almost every day. Yes, I know that’s boring. But, I buy different kinds of cereal. Sometimes a rice cereal in the shape of hexagons, sometimes frosted corn flakes, or maybe a peanut butter ball cereal. Regardless of the kind, it’s the same routine every morning.
First, I take out a bowl from the cupboard. If there are none, I take a clean one out from the dishwasher. I put the bowl on the counter. Then, I walk to the fridge and I take out the skim milk. I pour the cereal in the bowl, followed by the milk. Next, I carry the bowl and walk to the drawer with the silverware. I open it and grab a spoon. Finally, I walk to the table, sit down and eat it.
And there you have it, my breakfast routine. What’s yours? Try to say or write out your breakfast routine, using words like “first, then, next, lastly, finally, etc.” This is good practice for writing out sequences.
Believe it or not, this is very important to do if you’d like to get a job in the United States. Lots of companies have a question like this to see how you write things in steps. For my current job, I had to answer this question: “How do you brush your teeth?” What they are looking for are details! So practice here to make sure you can give those details in English!
