Hello everyone!
My name is Sergey and my friend name is Marina. We study English together.
My opinion is that I know thing that I want to buy, I have some shops where I usually buy.

Marina opinion is that she searches things in online stocks because she likes minimalism of buying, every thing must be important and need.

Dear teachers,
Before I almost ask my question you already replied kindly...
So,I will not be tired of saying that you are the best we would expect to find all of us trying to learn the English language but not having the corresponding financial means and knowledge.
I'd like also you to convey my thanks to the British Council for its social education offer.Keep in doing it. We all need you...
Nikos

Hello Nikos,

Thank you for your very kind words. We try our best to help!

Dear team ,isn't there something wrong, in exercise 7,about ''Covent Garden'' that became ''covent'',whereas the correct is that a ''convent garden'' became many years later the famous Covent Garden?
Therefore we could ask:1)when was Goven Garden a convent? or 2)when did a convent become Covent Garden?....
Thanks a lot,
Nikos

Hello Nikos

Thanks very much for taking the time to point this out to us. I've corrected sentence 2 in Task 5 -- that is the one you meant, right? -- so that it makes sense now.

Thanks again!

All the best

I like shopping everywhere.I prefer street shooping or market

Hi Everbody,
I stayed far to you. Finally I am here.
I was hound brand when I was a teenager. I bought brand clothes, shoes jacket everyhing under the sun. İn the past, I spent much money for clothes. The most important thing is cheap and quality at the moment. I can't spen much money for clothes. İt doesn't ( does not) make sese because I earn money workout. The money is valuable. Previously My father gived to me money.I didn't ( did not ) think how he earns money . I know something. You can't go shopping with women because İt likes that jump off a cliff. You don't ( do not) crash over in no way. You can't wake up I never been in london. I always prefer to go shopping alone and uncrowded places.
sweet dreams.

Hi everyone! I have never liked shopping. I hate when people do it slowly and do a closer look at products. I mean, it's kind of boring, isn't it? Let’s be honest, mostly our girlfriends love shopping, also they can do it every day and we always have to endure it. =(
When I was a child my mother very often took me with her on the shopping. I never liked to try on a lot of clothes, shoes and etcetera.
But my mother begged me to try on something a hundred times a day! I definitely can’t stand shopping.
Nowadays, If I go to the shopping I always know what I want and I don’t waste my time on the closer look at products. So, you know, I haven’t any favourite markets or department stores, I don’t like shopping centers. Unfortunately, I have never been in London. But someday when I will be there, I’ll exceptionally visit these places.

Hello,
I don´t like to buy at internet because I don´t like have been waiting for the parcel and even worse in our "poor" country , the order can take up to four months to reach me could be worse sometimes they just lost your order or stolen it .
But I really like to go shopping , could be shopping center or small market it is fun for me ,I think I am materialist and I know I have to change my mind .
