В соседнем уроке мы осваивали полезные слова и выражения на
тему Online Shopping
и учились делать покупки на англоязычных сайтах. Профукали все деньги, остались ни с чем
Если пропустили, рекомендую прогуляться сюда и повторить выражения на тему
Ну а теперь давайте
попрактикуемся и сделаем упражнения. Ну просто потому, что иначе в голове ничегошеньки не останется, и все ваши (и мои!) труды окажутся напрасными.
А упражнения не простые, упражнения крутые!))) Даже, я бы сказала, волшебные. Каждый, кто их сделает, запомнит все слова и выражения на тему Покупки / Online shopping. Правда же, отличная замануха?)))
Очень рекомендую такой формат:
Увы, слова и выражения сами собой
не запоминаются(( Надо их повторять. Что не отменяет факта: упражнения волшебные))
К вопросу о том, сколько нужно упражнений, чтобы что-то освоить.

Complete the story using suitable words and forms of words. For example:
I saw this amazing
camera on Amazon and really wanted to buy it. I didn’t have an account, so I had to sign up first. I created an account and then signed in using my newly created username and password. I found the camera and clicked on the item in order to find out more about the product. I read the product description carefully and zoomed in on the photos. I liked what I saw but I read the customer reviews anyway, just to see what others thought of the camera.
I also did some shopping around to see if other retailers were offering better deals. But they weren’t, so I went with Amazon and that particular camera. Then I checked if it was in stock. Luckily, it was (they had plenty!), so I added the camera to my cart.
It occurred to me I also needed a memory card to go with my camera, so I continued shopping. Unfortunately, the one I chose was out of stock (such a shame they had none left!), and the other one I kind of liked was way overpriced and had negative customer reviews (only 1 star - nobody liked it!). I didn’t want to settle for anything else, so I was done shopping.
It was then that I thought checking the shipping rates would be a good idea. You know how sometimes delivery is pricier than the product itself? Luckily, this wasn’t the case here.
I have to admit I’m not particularly keen on legal stuff (do you know anyone who is?), so I looked through the Returns Policy very briefly only to clear my conscience.
Finally, it was time to proceed to checkout, and that’s exactly what I did. I was then offered to choose a delivery option (Standard, of course! why let them rip you off?) and a payment method (obviously, they accept all major cards). I paid, and that was that – I placed the order for them to fulfil.
Following that, I received a confirmation email;e-mail with all the details (including the tracking number so I could track my;the package and know exactly where it was at any given moment – so convenient!).
Three weeks later I got a notification that the package had arrived at my local post office, and I went to pick it up straight away. I spent 2 long hours in the queue, which I found really annoying. I was getting really impatient when my number came up on the screen. I showed the notification to the clerk, who then handed me the package.
wait till I got home, so I ripped it open right there only to find the camera
А как бы вы закончили историю?
was WHAT? Let’s come up with several possible endings!
Осилили упражнения? Проверили себя? Молодцы! Рекомендую
вернуться к этим упражнениям через несколько дней и сделать их еще раз для большего
выхлопа большей эффективности.
А если остались вопросы, давайте их обсудим в комментариях!
Теперь готовы делать покупки онлайн на американских
А может, уже делали? Какие могут возникнуть проблемы во
время онлайн шопинга на англоязычных сайтах? Помимо желания спустить всю зарплату?)))
