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)
