I prefer shopping online!it's more convenient.You don't even need to go out to get what you want.It's' fantastic.

i love Tom. His advice is very useful for me to improve my english.

What do you think about shopping? Do you always enjoy shopping, or does it depend on what kind of shopping it is?

for me it depends, I think we should considered the types of shopping to answer this question because there are factors effects on it like : the time, the kind of need to shopping and do you shop a lone or with someone ? so personally I really enjoy shopping with someone because it is help me to being relaxed, but if we talk about shopping for household items it is really tedious.

I liked the jokes told by Gordon.

Well honestly I am a fan of shopping for some reasons like enjoy being in crowded places as bazaars or huge shopping centers and malls or wearing new clothes and also I have a hidden interest to know live prices every time which it is weird.

Hello. I more love shopping then hate, ecpecially is there is money, goog mood and good company. And I love new clothes and things.

Hello every on. I'm really glad that I heard about Time in this podcast. beacuse my MA theses was about time. actully I've not got the physics MA, my field in univercity was clinical phycology and I investigated the effect of depprestion and PTSD on time perception, Do these patients feel the time slower or faster?
anyway, I love the relativity theory.

I love shopping, this is my hobby

I hardly ever go to shopping because I don't have enough time,so I prefer that I do the shopping when something is really necessary for me but in fact I love shopping specific about buying the cloth and shoes.I often buy the books online and it's fast and easy.
