3 Interview your partner about shopping. Ask the questions below
Are you shopaholic or someone who hates shopping? What do you like or hate about it? What sort of shops would somebody typically find you in on a Saturday morning? When shopping in a supermarket, are you a ‘basket person’ – just buying a few things for the next day or so – or a ‘trolley-person’ – doing the weekly shop from a long shopping list. What things are always on your supermarket shopping list? Are there any unusual items on your list? What’s the best shop you have ever been to? Is shopping for you a pleasant activity or rather a waste of time? Tell the class about your partner.

It is held usually once a weak by people from surrounded villages. a high street - lots of shops, they are full of branches of big chain stores. charity shop - a kind of second hand shop, but there is a difference.

9 Give different ways of payment for purchase with their pluses and minuses.

10 How you can pay Big 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 phone Credits cards are very widely accepted in Great Britain but unfortunately, we are not used to use them in our country very much. It is better to use credit cards, because using them can limit the amount of pickpockets. Cash - if you want to buy something, you must have money, nothing is free.

11 What public services are offered in your town?
Is there any “home-delivery” service in your town? Say which services are frequently used by your family and which are not at all. Say how Slovak services differ from British ones.

16 Worksheet – Shop till you drop
Match the types of shops with the words and phrases that can be associated with them. Eg., volunteer staff usually work in charity shops. Some words/phrases are appropriate for more than one type of shop Department store Corner shop Chain store Car showroom Charity shop Furniture warehouse Shopping centre/mall Off licence supermarket Counter Store detectives Open all day Pop round to get some milk Second-hand clothes Food hall Aisle Part exchange Trolley Volunteer stuff $8, 000 on the road Raising money for good causes Designer clothes A bottle of wine Sale now on ‘Toys are on the third floor madam’ Till One in every high street Promotion Brand names Marks & Spencer Check out CCTV Everything must go Buy 1 get 1 free Great bargains Basket A packet of cigarettes Escalator Customer must be over 18 Two years warranty muzak Give it a test run Lots of shops under one roof Shopkeeper Which word is the odd one out in each list? A shopkeeper shop assistant shoplifter sales clark B a basket a till a trolley a carrier bag C warranty guarantee receipt D a label a price tag a hanger a security tag E $ 10 off half price a bargain a refund

17 worksheet C) 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. What is the difference in meaning between them? A tacky second-hand damaged Shop-soiled B exchange haggle barter C browse root through window shopping D) Write a short description of a type of shop or way of shopping that is particular to your country. Where does it take place? What do people buy and sell and how do they do it.

18 role play Look at these phrases from a conversation between a shop assistant and a customer. Who says which phrase? Can I try it on? It suits you. It doesn't’ t fit me. It looks nice. The changing rooms are over there. How much is it? I’m just looking. Thanks. Now imagine that you are in a shoe shop. Write the conversation between the customer and the shop assistant. Use the phrases like Yes, of course; Yes, certainly; Thank you very much
