Shopping (топик на английском)
"О себе" - все топики.
Shopping means going to some place to buy things. For some
people this is a hobby. They go shopping in their free time.
Some people go shopping on weekdays to buy food.
My family and I do the shopping at weekends. My family is not
very big, but my parents work hard and they have no time to go
to buy things during a week. On Sunday we usually go to a large
supermarket and buy food for the whole week. I don't like going
there, because there are usually many people. This supermarket
has a lot of departments: a food department, a grocer's, a
butcher's, a fishmonger's and even a chemist's department.
Sometimes my mother goes to the cosmetics department while my
father and my brother goto the pet shop, which is situated
There are a lot of shops in Moscow. Some of them are expensive,
others are cheap and you have a choice. I don't understand those
people who go to some specialized shops to buy things of a
certain brand. Such things are rather expensive. I prefer going
to a market and buy clothes there.
I prefer doing the shopping alone when I need clothes or books.
My favourite bookshop is in the centre of Moscow. I can spend
hours there looking at different books and choosing the most
interesting ones to read. My brother hates shopping. Our parents
buy clothes for him and he is not against it. I also like to go
shopping when I need to buy presents for my family or friends.
Sometimes my friend helps me choose presents. She is a very nice
girl with a good taste and she knows what things are good.
Sometimes I have to go to the baker's to buy bread and to a
dairy shop to buy milk or sour cream.
In my childhood I liked to do the shopping because I felt
grown-up, but now I see that this process is quite boring. And I
don't like shopping without any need.
