1) Actually, my mom who want to take over most of shoping, always has limited time. Therefore she prepare shopping lists and then tell off other family members what to buy. with leadership of my mom, shoping is never be problem.

2)I prefer to shop special items which are gifts, clothes or decoraiton materials. Shopping of vital goods like meals don't attract my interest.

3)Yes, it is quite popular. In my country, you can see alot of mall and shoping center. Also, people think that shopping is kind of relaxing activity which is make in free times.

4)As all the world, in my country young people closely follow new tecnological devolopment and fashion styles. consequently gadgets and clothes are top priority of teenagers.

I look forward to build a group to practice speaking using skype. If we start speaking together then we will able to develop our speaking skill. If anyone interested join this id --- ielts_2013

1) Well, my dad does most of the shopping in our home. Maybe because he is the only one with a car, which makes shopping easier for him.

2) I really enjoy shopping in flea markets. Especially when I can meet the producers and talk to them. I even prefer to do grocery shopping in open markets where farmers bring their own products.

3) Yes. In fact, it is one of the most popular hobbies of people. However, many people just go to shopping centers for window-shopping. But eventually they find themselves buying stuff.

4) I think they are mostly interested to buy clothes. Especially they like shopping in big stores of multinational brands.

I was given a question about shop:

What do you like to do in shop?

1) My father does the most of the shopping for our household. Normally, he goes shopping in the Supermarket on weekly basis in case of running out of daily grocery.

2) Well, I like one stop shopping. For example, my favorite mart is Carrefour. The reason is I can purchase everything I need at one time in the same place rather than searching different products in different places. It’s quite troublesome.

3. I think the answer is Yes. Most of Taiwanese like to go shopping on weekends. The shopping centers are always crowded and busy on normal weekday night and weekends.

4) I’m not professional for teenager’s shopping behavior but I guess they are interested in the products of pop culture such as music, fancy clothes and invocated gadgets.

How do we say "I'm not an expert in teenage behavior"is not it escape??
