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

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.
