10 How you can payBig shops use self-serving, that means that you go around the shop and choose what you want.It is more economical for them and faster for customers. But in the small shops you buy everything at the counter, where you also pay for the goods you have chosen.You can pay cash, by credit cards or by cheques.Order by mail/ catalogue sales/ home delivery service/ order over the phoneCredits cards are very widely accepted in Great Britain but unfortunately, we are not used to use them in our country very much.

17 worksheetC) Do you know what a car boot sale is? Or a jumble sale? Have a guess. Read the texts and find out if you were right.Basically, people drive to an open air field in the middle of the country somewhere park their cars in a row, open the car boots, and sell the things they have inside. It’s great fun. I love browsing , just walking from car boot to car boot, looking at what’s on sale. They are often very cheap, tacky things, but sometimes you get a great bargain. You can exchange something of your own for something from someone else’s boot. And you can haggle down the price, which is something you can’t usually do in British shops.Often held in a church hall or local community centre to raise money for a local charity or school, a jumble sale involves lots of people bringing old clothes and second-hand household items, and selling them very cheaply. It’s good fun to root through everything and find something you like. Jumble means a big pile of things in a mess. And that’s basically what it is. A pile of old things on a table and two old ladies making tea for everybody.Look at these phrases / some of which are from the texts.
