    What's your work schedule?

    Hi, there!

    What would the best answers to the following question be? "What's your work schedule?" and what about the following question: "what make is your car?"

    Please help me!

    Thanks to you all.

    Eddie.

    '9-5 weekdays, with half an hour for lunch.' But the question would normally be less concrete: What hours do you work?

    Car: An Austin? A Mini? A Lamborghini? - I don't understand the problem.

    What's your work schedule?
    It depends on what your actual schedule is. Some people have regular work hours, some people have schedules that vary from week to week:
    "I work Monday through Friday, 8 to 5."
    "I've got Friday off this week, but then I have to go in early on Sunday."

    What make is your car?
    In AmE, when somone asks the make of your car, they're referring to the manufacturer. So you would answer a Chevrolet, a Buick, a Ford, etc. If they ask "what make and model is your car?", they you would elaborate and say "a Ford Escort," "a Chevy Malibu," "a Buick Riviera," etc. Some folks who are passionate about their vehicles get even more specific when asked "what make is your car?": "I've got a '66 Mustang completely cherried out with dual exhaust, leather seats and a 289 cubic inch (4.7 liter), 235 horsepower, V8 engine with a 4 barrel carburator."
