VI. Expanding Your Learning

Instructions: Select one or more of the activities below to expand your understanding and use of the slang studied in this unit.

  • Discussion: Talk with a partner about shopping on the streets and in outdoor markets. Discuss whether bargaining over the price of an item is acceptable or expected. Is it common for street vendors to raise prices for tourists? How do you know if you're getting the best price?

  • Improvisation: Give your partner(s) a new vocabulary word from this unit and ask the partner to think up a sentence or more with the slang used in context. Sharing something from personal experience will make the activity more real and interesting to the listeners.

  • Writing: Compose an email to your teacher or a friend about your reasons, for or against, shopping on the Internet. Share a personal experience or one of someone you know.

  • Real Speak: Interview a native speaker at your school or in the local community about their experiences shopping online or in a marketplace in a foreign country. Does the person prefer to shop at a traditional store or buy things online? Have the person explain their reasons.
