Talking about your day is a great way to practice your Chinese. We’re here to help you do just that in this post about my day in Chinese. Let’s start out by learning some important vocabulary.
Here’s a list of 20+ activities that you do every day in Chinese:

Now let’s use those words and try to practice asking/answering questions:
nǐ shén me shí hòu
When do you…?
nǐ jǐ diǎn

nǐ shén me shí hòu qǐ chuáng
When do you wake up?
wǒ qī diǎn qǐ chuáng
I wake up at 7.
nǐ jǐ diǎn xià bān
What time do you get off work?
wǒ wǔ diǎn bàn shàng bān
I get off work at 5:30.
See if you can form a few questions and answers on your own based on these examples.
Every day might not be the same, though. Some days, we do different things at different times. For example…
wǒ yǒu shí hou zǎo shàng bā diǎn shàng bān, yǒu shí hou xià wǔ yī diǎn shàng bān

wǒ yī bān shí diǎn zuò yùn dòng

zhōu mò de shí hou wǒ shí yī diǎn qǐ chuáng
I get up at 11 on the weekends.
