I spend most of my time doing my work. I am a church minister. I am always reading different kinds of books and I prepare spiritual teaching material. I study English grammar every day. When I have free time I watch movies and walk on the road.

Do you mean that you walk on the sidewalk :?:

Thanks a lot sir for your kind and bold suggestions. I also do believe in equality so I am agree with you that I should say people, not woman. As you know there is a big difference in the social culture of our countries US and India. In India, generally women take and handle all the responsibilities of house hold work which includes taking care of babies also. Only this the reason I had written 'woman' instead of parents or people.

One think I want to ask that why term 'web surfing' is not correct. You have suggested 'surf the webng' (I also like to surf the webng). I never heard about this term. Please explain little bit about it.

Thanks & Regards,
Rajani

Yes, in some cultures it is still normal to say woman for certain jobs. Some Americans do it too, but many Americans hate it. Of course, you can say what you want and express your culture and your ideas. My job is just to tell you where the cultures may clash.

I think I meant surf the web. I have no idea what a webng is - sounds like I made a mistake!

Hello!
If I have free time I would love to read or take thirty minutes quick nap, but of course that doesn't happen when you have kids. My kids are homeschooled, so I don't get to have any free time for myself. I get to work 24/7 non stop. My only free time is at night and that when I am studying little before I go to sleep. I wish while I am learning English,I get to build my vocabulary for sure and write better than I am now.

Here I write about my "what I do in my free time" and "whats are my study habits" too.

In my free time I do various things: I usually go to the Internet and watch videos, listen to music or test technology. The videos I watch usually are about the faith, or how to do many things by myself, I like to see videos where I might learn how to do more for less, for example, free and saving energy. Also, I listen to music, specially in English and any podcast that I'm interested in. Additionally, I can spend hours and hours of my time testing technology stuffs, software and similar things.

For studying, I have to special hours: afternoon and nights. In all cases I usually use technology resources to do that. For example: to learn English I watch videos and listen podcasts, read news and any other information in English, just trying to get immersed into the language.

That's all, that's what I do.

somebody ask me that what do you do in your free time?
I am always busy working ,studying BSN of science of nursing and taking care of kids. There is no free time now. I burn out everyday. Before I love exercising like swimming and running.It makes me refresh and elastic skin after sweating. Another my hobby is reading books,most books in the USA are written in English, I could't really enjoy reading books because it takes longer to finish a book than written in korean , I have to find dictionary to know the meaning of words and even I know the meaning of words,but i don't know the structures of sentence, so i couldn't figure out the real meaning. sometimes i lost my interesting of reading books . I wish that i could enjoy reading someday.

I spend most of my free time browsing the diy yutube about cooking, sewing and crocheting. I love it when i learn new things it gives me fullfilment in life. I love to cook and if i have time i search and try to do it and serve to my family. My family loves my cooking and they thought that im the best cook in the world. The diy yutube about sewing helps me to learn to repair rip clothes and hem pants that saves me a lot of money no need to go to alteration shop. Internet for me is very helpful to people like me who likes to search and learn but you have to be very carefull also as there are some people that will try to harm others thru internet also. Thats about it, thats how i spend my free time.
