A Day in the Life:Vietnam

   My student is from Minh City, Vietnam. Bui Buy Binh is a 11 year old boy.

He has a mom, a dad, and a little brother. His mother makes him breakfast at 5:30 a.m.  His mom or dad give him a ride to school. When my mother gets home, we eat lunch together. He likes to play with his little brother, because he makes me laugh.

Events that happen before noon

  • turns in homework

  • they have art class

  • school ends at 11:00 a.m.

Events that happen between noon and 9:00p.m.

  • get home and water the plants on our rooftop garden


  • go for a walk in my neighborhood
  • practice piano

In my daily routine I wake at 6:00 a.m., brush my hair,  at 7:24 a.m I walk to the bus stop, talk to my best friend. This is what happens before noon.

  • brushing hair
  • walking to bus stop  
  • talking to  best friend     


Things I do between noon and 9:00 p.m. I eat lunch, I go to a classroom, after I get home from school I do homework, I eat dinner at 6:00 p.m., than at 9:00 p.m. I go to bed. Those are all the things I do between noon and 9:00.

  • eat lunch  
  • doing my homework  
  • going to bed

My daily routine and Bui Duy Binh routine are very different. He wakes up at 5:30 a.m., I wake up at 6:00 a.m. At 6:40 he is at school turning in his homework and I'm still getting ready for school.  His parents drive him to school and I ride a school bus to school.  He gets out of school at 11:00, I get out if school at 2:45. He water plants and I don't. He goes to bed at 8:00 p.m., I go to bed at 9:00 p.m. These are some of the different  things we do in our routine.
