Could the phrase work method be used to describe the way you work (the tasks you normally perform and the way you approach them). 'Work routine' sounds a bit negative, what could I use instead?
Do you mean something like "What's a typical day at work like for you?" or "What sort of things do you do on a daily basis?"
I don't find anything negative about work routine, but it would be easier to see the full sentence.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
I was thinking about some two-word phrase (analogous to 'work routine'). I don't know why but I have this persistent thought it exists, and I've already heard it, but at the moment I can't recall it.
Oh well, I can't expect you to guess what I *might* have heard. But thanks for the description Barb_D.
I've also come up with work-patterns, especially when describing a typical day at work.
