Camden Scene 2


Ashlie and Stephen need to finish their shopping. Ashlie drags Stephen into a shoe shop and they look at some amazing clothes.

 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.


Before you watch

Think about the following questions:

  • Do you like clothes shopping?
  • What sort of questions do you ask when you go clothes shopping?

Now, watch Stephen and Ashlie and listen to the questions they ask.

Thank you :)

Hi iliya_b,

This is just the way we say this in English - as far as I know, there is no specific reason for using 'a' here.
