Our names are Maud Hoffmann and Charlotte Lebrun and we are 13 years old.
A typical school day :
We wake up at 7.15 am and have breakfast. We have many different things like cereals and milk or without milk, fruit juice, yoghurt, and crisp bread with jam. At 8.20 am, we leave the house and catch the 8.30 am bus, which takes us to our first class at 9 am. We have an average of 6 hours of classes per day. We have French, English, Math, History and Geography, etc. We have a recreation break at 10 am and 4 pm. Lunchtime is around 12.30 and finishes around 1.45 pm. Classes resume at 2 pm. Depending on our schedule we finish at 4 pm or 5 pm. We take the bus home and as soon as we arrive we have a snack. After that we do our homework that is due for the next day. Our school days are : Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. We take a shower and eat dinner between 6.30 pm and 8.30 pm and we go to bed between 9 pm and 10.30 pm.

A typical non school day:
We wake up between 8.30 am and 9.30 am, and we have the same breakfast that we do during school days. During our free time, we play with our friends or if the weather is bad we play with our video games or with our brothers and sisters (Charlotte has a little sister and I (Maud) have a little brother). Lunchtime is about the same time while at school. In the afternoon, sometimes we go shopping with our friends or our mothers. We finish the afternoons by doing our homework or watching TV. Our days off school are Wednesday, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday. Our diner time is at the same time of the day as the other days of the week. After eating, we watch a bit of TV and we go to bed between 9.30 pm and 11 pm.
