Speaker A: Nowadays more and more companies show their products on the Internet. So, if there’s anything I need I can see where to get it and what it will cost without leaving home.

The Internet offers a place where we can communicate with each other. By exchanging ideas, learning other peoples’ customs and traditions, we get to know people from all over the world and how our life compares to other people’s lives in other countries.
Speaker С: I work all by myself doing translations. I find contacts on the web by publishing my advertisement on different Internet sites.

I also get paid through the Internet, so it saves me a lot of time.
