I like shopping because make me feel happy spend my own money earned with my job. I like buy things to me like clothes or accesories, also I buy things for my education like on line courses o scientist books.
Although I think is bad spend more money that you have creating a debt. You mustn't use a credit card or borrowing from others for buy things that you don't really need.

Well, it depends For my mode, if my mode right I love shopping in supermarket, I love shopping Stuff for house,I love shopping for clothes and love so much shopping online but I hate shopping if my bad mood or I’m busy.

I love it.
I think shopping is part of life as one has to get some essential needs for sustainable living.
Really, i don't. Because everyone has to do shopping for his or her needs whether one like it or not, its just what one has to be adapted to no matter the odds therein.
Actually, i enjoys shopping as its gives rooms to explore variety of trends about making choices.

I love shoppings! Is very therapeutic to me!

Online shopping is amazing, time saving plus offers lots of benefits when compared to buying from physical shops.

I don't really enjoy shopping, I usually go to the supermarket only if I need it, to buy foodstuffs, rather than that I'd prefer to do online shopping.

I don’t like shopping. But if I should do that, I’ll prefer online shopping, because I’ll be able to save time. I don’t want to waste the time.

I prefer shopping more than online's shopping because it is faster

I can't download audio.
How can i download audio file please....

Hello Walid Roman

If you are using a computer, you can right-click on the audio player and then choose the 'Save As' option. You might also be able to do this on a mobile phone or tablet, but it doesn't always work. If not, you could also get our free LearnEnglish Podcasts app and listen to them there.

All the best
