I don't really like shopping. However, once I go shopping, I usually lose control to buy anything that I like the first time I see it. Shoes are usually quite durable and last a long time, so I often go shopping for clothes.

Hi! I've checked the answer sheet. Is there anyone who sees in Task 1 the order of sentence 4 và 5 should switch? I think they numbered the wrong position

Hello myle,

You are right -- the two options are not in the correct order on the worksheet. I've made a note for us to fix this.

Thanks for taking the time to point this out to us and I'm sorry for any confusion!

All the best,

Kirk

Most women are keen on shopping and I am not an exception. Indeed, going to malls and markets make me feel relaxed and confident. As we are struggling with covid-19 these days, I just buy my necessities from online shops. However, I usually used to go shopping once or twice a month for clothes or shoes.
