of corse as every one i like shoping.since i think 40 years our society has became more and more materialistic so most of people who belong to this society follow .
sometimes we don`t need at all to buy anything but our behaviour has so changed that whenever we have free time we go straight wiste time and money.
i know a lot oxford street ,i think it is one of the best shooping street in the world,i walked all the street many times.
i know also many other places as stratford which is very big at the same time you can visit olympic stadium.

I love to go shopping in shopping centers together with my mom. When we finish shopping, we have some food in fast food restaurants or sometimes in good restaurants. Though there are lots of shopping centers in Yangon, the commercial city of Myanmar, Myanmar people love to go to traditional markets to buy food. There are all sorts of food we want near our houses. Even clothes and devices! Going shopping in shopping centers is a kind of recreation.And there are also second hand books market downtown. So cheap....There are also night markets in Yangon where you can have fun.

Hello trade,

I'm afraid this isn't the kind of service we provide. If you want to ask us about one of these sentences, telling us where you think the error is and why it's incorrect, we can help you with that, but our primary purpose is to help users with questions that are related to our website in some way.

All the best,

Hello Dr Kirk,

I'm confused about my use of verbs in this piece of writing. Please correct me, if the writing itself doesn't look grammatically OK thanks.

"Just doing what everyone does, never really makes a difference; but doing what no one has ever thought of (if morally acceptable and outstanding), I think that's what makes a huge difference. Because it will leave a trail for others to follow."

I'm afraid we don't correct users' texts – we are simply too small a team – but I will say that your text looks correct and is intelligible. It's a nice idea!
