Morning commute!

I teach one day a week at a school in London. The morning commute takes about an hour and a half - good time for reading a book :-)

Do you have a long commute to work?

What's the morning commute like in your city?

So you only need to work one day in a week? That's cool! I do have a long commute to work, it takes me more than 1 hour and a half- good time for catching some Zs, haha...
I'm working for a german company in Beijing. The morning commute here in Beijing can be a little crazy, I usually go to work by subway, at the peak time, there's loads of people everywhere. Sometimes you wouldn't be able to get on the fist train that comes in, and have to wait for another one. And there are times when you have to stand on tiptoe in one of these trains, haha, and that's not a joke.
I also do some reading on my phone while commuting. Recently I'm reading a book written by George Soros in Chinese, I love reading economic books and biographies! 
I'm looking for someone who can teach me English, and I can teach her/him Chinese in return~ Could you kindly help me with my spoken English><

We have a shuttle bus between home and work place(I worked in an international school), around 60mins early in the morning. I am used to it as i can spend the time on learning another language or sleep on the bus. -- Shanghai, China

I actually work from home most days now. I just go to London one day a week so it's not so bad.

PM and we can see if there's a time we could organise a language exchange.

I work from my home: "home office". So no long commute for me. :)

But when I worked in the research institute of the city near my village (about 30km) the morning commute took from 30 minutes to 45 minutes. It was 15 minutes longer if I left home 5 minutes later.
