I got a warm wool blanket. It's not actually a cloth like a sweater, but it can be a cloth like a poncho. ;)

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.

Oh Yeah, I love doing shopping, when I need something quick I go for offline shopping. on the other hand, if I am not in hurry I mean I can wait for 3-4 days to get delivered my order within sometimes then I go for online shopping with lots of variety. Going out shopping is fun but if I want to save time and do advance shopping I go online.

I love shopping, I like to go and see all the stores and buy new clothes and shoes to look good at all times, also now I like to buy online is a good option to avoid crowding in stores and find the best prices. I actually shop when I really need something, if there is something I don't like is to go shopping with my wife, she visits all the stores and doesn't like anything, She is very hesitant

Yes, I enjoy it very much. Usually go to the supermarket once or twice a week, but I rearly buy clothes in the mall or in the supermarket. I like buying clothes on-line because it is very convinience and you could buy something at anytime/anyplaces. Meanwhile it is very easy to change for another one or return it back if you donot like it.

yeah, I'm interested in shopping, especially when I'm stress, it help me feel more comfortable. I often go shopping for clothes more than for shoes. At least, I buy clothes once a month. As for buying shoes, I only go shopping when it is necessary and about once or twice a year because my shoes have been very durable.

Yes of course. But, I kinda rarely go shopping. I only go shopping about two or three times a year especially if there is a discount. I usually just go sightseeing when I am in mall, not for buying some clothes, because I have to save my money for other purposes.
