No, I don't. Because it takes a lot of time and makes me tired at the end. I usually go shopping when there is specific event, like: Eid Al-Fitr or graduation day for example.

well shopping is my hobby. However, mostly it seems that girls are more curious than boys. But, in my case I have much curiosity for shopping cloths and shoes. I like to go out with my friends particularly on weekends in different shopping malls in my hometown. Further, I mostly checkout all new arrivals and purchase them according to my interest and budget.

I think most people enjoy shopping like me. furthermore, some people like window shopping especially for women but about me, if I have free time it can be enjoyable. Anyway, it's become more enjoyable when you make a bundle!! so if you are broke it will be horrible for you. my wife and I go shopping when I need.

I really enjoyed shopping in the mall or any store. I really like to buy a bag and clothes. Usually, I go shopping with my friend, I could ask their suggestion which one is fit for me. But sometimes, I also like shopping for my self, only surrounding the mall not to buy something heheh.

How can I download the listenings

Hello mariem.n

If you are using a computer, you can right-click on the audio player and then choose 'Save Audio As' (or some other very similar option) and then the audio will download. It's a bit trickier on tablets on phones and depends on the operating system. I'd recommend doing it on a computer if possible.

All the best
