Tell us about your favourite time of day. 

Are you happiest in the morning or at night? Or maybe in the afternoon?




Hi everyone. For my, the favorite time of the day is afternoon, just after work.When I come home about 4 p.m I like spent time with my family, especially with my son and daughter. Then we can speak what we were do during the day, what happened in the school or in the work.That time is only for my family because work is not whole life. Also I like learning English with Elementary Podcast British Council or watching movie on the web, which English is not difficult, not advanced because my English is not very advanced. I like cook in the evening too for my family, and after walk with my dog.

I would always love waking up early in the morning so as i can make use of that time by reading because i enjoy reading, and getting up early make me feel cool and energetic the whole day but it's a struggle to get up in mornings in the winter season and have late night sleep anyway i hope i can do everyday. And I suppose i may enjoy at night after my marriage but not now.

I am having confusion of using prepositions at places. When to use in, on and at?
for eg.
'i am in the train' or 'i am on the train',
'i am in the bus' or 'i am on the bus',
'i am in the car' or 'i am on the car',
'i am in the railway station' or 'i am at the railway station'
'i am in the Airport' or 'i am at the Airport'

Hello sarang_b,

Native speakers tend to use 'on' with the 'bus', 'train' and 'plane', but 'in' with the 'car'. With stations and airports, you can use 'in' or 'at'. In this case, 'in' means you are inside the building, whereas 'at' is more general - for example, you could say you're at the airport when you're actually outside the building parking your car. But you could also say 'at' when you're inside the terminal already.

As you can see, prepositions are often used quite irregularly in English! The more you read and hear them, the better.

All the best,

Oh I see it now. Thank you for clarifying. :)

My favourite time of the day is night. At that time, I feel relaxed and no one can interupt me. Therefore, it is a great time for me to listen to my favourite kinds of music, making my own food and lying on the sofa to watch TV. Especially at night on Saturdays, I like taking care of my bonsai. Seeing them grow is very happy to me. What's more, I like staying along at night because I feel better after do this.

My favorite part of day is the morning of Friday, it’s week end in Algeria, I fell very well at this moment because no stress of work, I go shopping then meet my friends at the cafeteria talking about our week’sadventures

For working my favorite time is in the morning, because I get more concentration at this time. In my country this way of begining the day it's easier in spring and in summer, due to sun rising earlier in the morning, as in winter or in autumn.
But for my leisures at the weekend or on other days I h'd better having my activities in the afternoon or in the evening. For instance for jogging I'm more efficient at these moments, it's exactly that I did yesterday afternoon..

I'm so excited because of the fact that I'm going to have job interview an hour later. This job is something like waiter so I can say it's like Carolina's job. I have learnt something about job interview from Carolina's experience which is so beneficial.

I want to share good news with you. Wish me luck!!

I will be happy, if you correct my mistakes. Thanks a lot

Hello again akfsvgn,

It's great that Elementary Podcasts might help you get a job! Please let us know if you get it!

I just wanted to mention a couple of other sections of LearnEnglish that you might want to look at. Our You're Hired video series is also about job-hunting; it's for an office job, but there still might be some useful phrases in it for you. Many of the episodes in Big City Small World happen in a café, so that might also be another useful resource for you.

As I mentioned in my other reply, we don't correct users' texts, but if you have a specific question about a specific sentence, feel free to ask. And if you're able to, a class at a British Council Centre near you would also be a good way to improve your speaking. 

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
