A typical shopping process

  • We take a shopping basket or a trolley and go into the shop. There are lots of shelves with products so that we can choose what we want.
  • In some shops (goldsmith´s or butcher´s) there are counters and the shop assistants show us and hand us the goods.
  • In clothes shops there are changing rooms (fitting rooms) where we can try the clothes on. Then we go to the cash register.
  • We can pay in cash or by card. After having paid we get a receipt that gives us a guarantee. If there is something wrong with the goods, we can take the goods back and get a refund.


Shopping malls

  • For many people shopping malls are a place where they spend their free time. They have long opening hours and they are open at weekends.
  • There are lots of shops concentrated in a big hall. Most of them are clothes shops and boutiques, some shops with jewellery, accessories and cosmetics. In most shopping malls you can find fast food stalls and cafés, children´s court and sometimes also a cinema.
  • People often go window shopping there. (Window shopping is browsing shops when you do not want to buy anything. You are only watching.)



  • Advertisements are a part of our lives today. We can see them on TV, on billboards, in magazines, on the internet. Ads want to persuade us to buy something. They mostly cost a lot of money – that is why advertised products are more expensive. Advertisements are successful because people mostly choose a trademark which they know (from TV, radio, billboards). Lots of things are advertised: bank products, all kinds of goods, food, fast food restaurants, cars etc.
  •  Some people think that billboards are dangerous because they attract attention of drivers and then, drivers do not concentrate on driving.
  • Advertisements on TV are called „commercials“. Most TV stations put commercials between films.
