Working times

Office workers talk about a nine-to-five job, and this is still typical in both North America and the U.K. Finishing at four (or even earlier) on Friday is normal.

In the U.K., most employees get three to four weeks vacation a year. In the U.S.A., two weeks is more common (but there are more national holidays as compensation).

Factory workers begin earlier, with 8 to 4:30 being common in the U.K. In the U.S.A., a 7 a.m. start in factories is normal, and workers might have breakfast at work at 9 and finish by 3:30 p.m.

Many businesses have cafeterias for employees. Very few British or American workers go home for lunch (though in Southern Europe over 40% of workers do, but a two or three hour break at lunch times makes this possible).

Хотелось бы иметь чтобы в курсе «Survival English» ко всем звуковым текстам был ещё написанные тексты. Тогда освоение материала было бы лучше очень трудно воспринимать текст только с голоса.
