Hey, while I was reading the preparation for this video I came across the sentence which has, or it just sounds silly to me, inverted the last two words. It says:"...clothes shopping." I've never heard this before in my entire life, not in a movie, video game or anywhere. I assume it is actually correct but how come I've never heard that before in everyday speaking? If it is, I'd like u give me an example, like where can I find more of these unusual phrases that cannot be heard in random everyday speaking. Thank u. :)

Hello Andrea,

'Clothes shopping' is not all that common, probably because 'going shopping' often refers to shopping for clothes, but the way it is formed is nothing unusual. It's a compound noun similar to others noun + noun combinations such as 'car shopping', 'razor blade' or 'bus stop'.

I think the best thing you can do to pick up vocabulary like this is to read and listen to English widely. It sounds as if you already do that, but if not, I encourage you to give it a try. There are loads of resources on the internet that you could use (e.g. the BBC world news, TED talks, etc.). And of course a good dictionary will be a good friend for your listening and reading.

Good luck!

All the best,

Hello Velmurugan A,

'Get a move on' means 'hurry' or 'speed up'.

Hello dinhtonquyen,

If you press on the word Transcript, below the exercises and above the comments, you can see the words that are spoken in the video. There's also a dictionary search box on the right side of this page – look for the green Look it up! button.
