Dear LearnEnglish Team,
Hello! I would like to ask about the task 2 answer " Richard talks about shops outside London" is it pertaining to this- " Small specialist shops can be found all over the country ".?
I love the task 3, very entertaining and a good exercise for the sleepy brain.
Thank you and more power.

Hello caryle,

Yes, that's correct. Thanks for your feedback - we're glad you enjoyed it!

I really enjoyed watching the Video. Thanks a lot. I like the shopping street.

very interesting ! I like shopping and I'm wild about going shopping in Britain. I love Britain and I wish i could spend many years living there ......

Thank you for this video! I found it very interesting and useful.

Shopping in London is really a great experience. The street markets always have many bargains and good things to buy. You can have fun just wondering around, having a snack and talking to other people.
 

.I agree with you:-D But I do not like shopping at all, only to buy candies;-P!!!!!!!!! BELLA.99.

I Keep watching Shopping is Great (Part 1 and Part 2) and do the after-watching activities. My students (14-15 y.o.)  and I do enjoy the video w/ Richard . Very enlightening! (Hi, from Ternopil, Ukraine)

Hello Miss Inna,
We're really glad to hear that - we hope you and your students enjoy all the other episodes too!
Best wishes,
