Hi, Ben. I have found two photos, which we could use for our school project “Shopping”. The first picture presents a family in a supermarket. The second illustration shows a woman who’s going to buy something online. The pictures differ from each other in many ways. The main difference is a way of shopping. In the first case we deal with a traditional method of buying goods, but in the second case we observe an up-to-date form of shopping. In addition, in the first situation purchases are made by a group of people, while the second one is rather about individual shopping.
Each way of shopping has its advantages. When you are in a supermarket you can take a product in your hand to get to know if it’s ok. At the same time, buying things via a computer is more comfortable because you don’t need to go anywhere at all.
You know, nothing is perfect, and each way of shopping has its disadvantages. If it concerns real retailers, it takes time to get to the shop and return home. When it comes to buying online, it is not safe enough. For example, to make a payment you have to enter your credit card number and the pincode. Fraudsters can steal your money.
Personally, I prefer online shopping because, while buying, you can read detailed reviews and opinions of real customers concerning this or that product. It helps me to make the right decision.
That’s it, Ben. Call me back as soon as you come home. I need your opinion. Bye.
