Language level

Intermediate: B1


My favorite part of the day is the morning. I feel energy. I wake up early. I like early morning, specially in summer or in spring. I like to walk in the morning. I like to work in the morning too. I always do exercise (training) in the morning. And I'm ready to start new day.

My favourite time of the day is in the evening . When I can sit with my mum and dad after returning back from work . we watch the T.V and talk together .I also like morning so much as I wake up early full of energy and start my day .I start my day at 5 a.m. first I pray and then read Qur'an and I enjoy listening to the sounds of birds in the morning. I plan my whole day and start it with hope and confidence.

My favourite time of the day is in the evening. It's time for every family's members to meet and have dinner together. During the day, the adults go to work, the children go to study. After working hard, we go home and talk about how our day is. We share every stories with each other and have fun. However we are busy, wherever we work in, we'd better have dinner together. It's a traditional routine in my country.

when do we use at and in with words like university and school.I know that we usually use at with these words, but i read the following sentence on your website and got confused: "If you are studying in a British university you will be required to do a large amount of writing, whatever your subject."
Thanks in advance

Hi zagrus,

Many would also use at in the sentence you mention as well. at is used with school, university and other places that are buildings especially when referring to the activity that happens there (e.g. studying, being a student, research, etc.) as opposed to location in the physical buildings themselves.

Hi every one I hope all of you are in good case.
My favorite part of the day is morning, especially at 5:30. I wake up at this time to pray then I start reading book or practice English listening. After that I prepare my self to go to my work. I feel happy and active when I wake up with birds sounds and sun shining.It is great also when you start your day with paying , because you will feel hopeful and confident.
