Madrid Teacher series: A day in the life of an English teacher

Today's lesson from Madrid Teacher is devoted to elementary students (Básico 1 and Básico 2) and deals with daily routines. Victoria Fontana, an English teacher who lives in Madrid, tells us about a typical working day in her life.

The video is divided in two parts. The first part (up to 3'00") shows us Victoria telling us about her busy lifestyle. The second part is, in fact, a repeat, but everything that Victoria says is subtitled, with what she makes sure we fully understand everything.

I must say Victoria is a bit of a fast talker, so we may need to listen to her several times to understand her comfortably.

Watch the video clip. What does Victoria do at these times?
4'30'' to 8'30''
9'00 to 10'00''

Do you have any hobbies?
