What are common after-school activities children and teenagers might be involved in during a normal school week?
A. Listen to the recording and answer the questions.
Daughter: Uh, we're thinking about seeing a movie on Wednesday after school. Father: Well, that's not going to work. You have piano lessons after school and then you have to babysit for the neighbors until 9:00.
Father: Monday's out. You haven't practiced your clarinet at all . . . for an entire month, so you have to catch up on that. And, don't you have an essay due in your English class on Tuesday?
Father: Uh, you have soccer practice from 4:00 until 5:30, and after that, you have to do your homework.
Father: Well, you have to do your chores in the morning before noon. [You can help me with that.] Oh no. And then, we have to clean out the garage.
The girl wants to see the 9:30 p.m. movie, but her father tells her to go to the 5:00 p.m. show.
