Stephen and Ashlie realise they have quite similar ideas about what their Mum would like, but Ashlie soon gets distracted from the task in hand!


Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to Task and do the activity. If you need help, you can read the transcript at any time.





I shop in the market in my country - Guinea, compare to Britain markets, it's litle bit different, those stuff are layed down and those expose on market table. stuff are not dear.
There are many rows and corners and those who do not have fix place, they have to walk while selling their goods.

Sometimes I shop in center market in my city. I think it's similar and there are a lot of stuff like that, and you can buy without you spend much money.


Can anybody help, I don't know how to watch the video, I mean I can't find where to play it...


The video appears to be working correctly so I can only guess that the problem is a local issue. It may be a compatibility problem. Sometimes a particular device is not compatible with certain types of media - this is expecially common with mobile devices, for example. Certain software (firewalls, certain security programs etc) can block media types as well.

I suggest trying to access the page on a different device - a laptop or desktop computer - and/or using a different browser. You might also try using a different connection (an alternative internet provider, for example, or a different wifi network.

I hope those suggestions are helpful.

Hi guys,
I'm Noemy, from China, I grew up in Italy though. I remember when I was child I used to shop in markets with my grand-mother in China. But it's more about the food, actually there are also a lot of markets like Camden. To be honest I'd been recently in England and the Camden town is a little bit more different in term of entertainment.
