Questions of Part 1

Do you like/enjoy shopping?

Well, I love shopping because spending time on some of my favourite and essential things makes me feel happy. It is my most enjoyable activity which always elevates my mood.

Are there many shops where you live?

We’ve got a few local shops nearby and a few independent stores but none of the big high street names. I have to go to town for them.

Do you often go shopping for personal items?

When I can afford it, yes, my university is in the city centre and I do a lot of window shopping. However, I’m on a tight budget because I’m still a student, so I have to be careful with money.

How do you feel about shopping?

Well, for me, shopping is a soothing and relaxing experience. It is about buying some essential groceries or maybe spending spree sometimes. But, I would like to mention that I mostly shop for clothes.

What is your favourite shop and why do you like it? / Do you have any favourite stores?

I prefer shopping at Coopmart or Big C as they have everything available and at reasonable prices. These stores provide a wide range of products from groceries to lifestyle. More important, goods in these shops are usually on special offer.

Do you shop online?

Answer 1: Previously, I used to shop at Big C, but these days I do most of my shopping through e-commerce. I find shopping online more convenient and effort-saving since I don't have to spend time travelling to shops. So, there is no need to tackle crowds or traffic jams. Besides, I don’t need to carry the things I have bought since I will have them delivered at my door.

Answer 2: Currently, I do all of my shopping at Big C. But in the future, I would like to buy things through e-commerce. Online shopping is convenient because people can do it anywhere at any time. Also, you will have a variety of options in just a few clicks on websites rather than gave to visit stores to stores in order to search for the things you want.

Các câu hỏi & trả lời của Mr Simon

Who does most of the shopping in your household?

There isn't one person who does most of the shopping. I'd say it's a shared responsibility because we tend to go shopping together as a family.

What kind of shopping do you like doing?

I quite like shopping for presents for people's birthdays or for Christmas. My favourite type of shop would have to be a bookshop.

Is shopping a popular activity in your country?

Yes, it's very popular. Saturday is the busiest shopping day, and lots of people treat shopping as a kind of leisure activity, rather than something practical.

What types of shops do teenagers like best in your country?

I'm not an expert on teenage behaviour, but I guess they like buying clothes, music, gadgets... that kind of thing.
