Jess: welcome to Platzi academy I’m Jess English training lead here at Platzi. remember to go to platzi. com / shopping and take this week’s free class joining us today is Cesar English teacher at Platzi. hey, Cesar how’s it going?

Cesar: Hi Jess. I’m doing great thank you.

Jess: in this podcast, you will learn about useful language when buying at the supermarket, but before we begin let’s review some of the vocabulary we will use in this episode.

Cesar: the first word is shopping the activity of buying things from stores.

Jess: the second word is aisle a long narrow space between rows of seats in an aircraft, theater, Church, etc, or between the rows of shelves in a store.

Cesar: the next word is item: something that is part of the least or group of things.

Jess: next we have scheduled: a list of planned activities or things to be done showing the times or dates when they are intended to happen or be done.

Cesar: and finally shopping cart: a small vehicle that you push around a store put in the things that you want to buy in it.

Jess: Great! Our trivia question for this episode is… if something you bought was a bargain, it wasn’t…
A) expensive
B) on sale
C) big
D) bought with cash.

Cesar: stay tuned to find out the answer.

Jess: yes! So, Cesar today we’re going to talk about useful questions when buying at the supermarket.

Cesar: that’s right Jess if you want to know more about these go out to Platzi. com / ingles and take our course “curso de inglés para compras”.

Jess: Amazing! The first then you going to need before actually choosing the items you want is the shopping cart so the first question we’re going to learn is…

  • excuse me, where are the shopping carts? You can also ask… Where can I find the shopping carts?

Cesar: Absolutely useful Jess, now if you are looking for a specific item and you don’t know where it is, you can ask…

  • excuse me, where can I find… (and then the item)? For example. Where can I find the bread? Where can I find the fruit?

Jess: yeah! you can also ask do you have any… for example

  • Do you have any bags I can use? you can use this question if you are not sure if you can find the item at the supermarket, maybe they don’t have what you need.

Cesar: Great, now if you need some assistance or help at a store you can ask…

  • Excuse me, can you give me a hand? it isn’t a literal hand but it means can you help me? you can use this question if you are not sure how much an item is or where it is.

Jess: excellent, the next question is very important when you want to know the price of an item you can ask…

  • how much is this? or how much are these? For example how much is this bread? Or how much are these shoes?

Cesar: that’s a very important question, Jess. And the next question is related to the schedule… what time do you open? what time do you close?. for example…

  • what time do you open tomorrow? what time do you close tonight? very useful so that you can visit the store at the right time.

Jess: let’s play a game with our listeners now. we’re going to ask a question and give two possible answers to that question but only one answer is correct. we’re going to give a few seconds for our listeners to choose the right answer.

Cesar: interesting all right let’s do this!

Jess: question number one. Excuse me, where can I find the toilet paper?

Cesar: option number one: yes, I can help you. option number two: you can find it on aisle 4. which is the right answer… one or two?

Jess: had you decide? the correct answer is… option two! you can find it on aisle 4. so next question how much is this jar of jam?

Cesar: option number one: it’s 5,99. option number two: we close at 8:00 p.m. which one sounds correct? It’s 5,99 or we close at 8 pm.

Jess: So this one could be tricky. do you have the right option? well, the right answer is… option one it’s 5,99. the last question excuse me can you give me a hand?

Cesar: option one: I’m sorry I don’t have a hand. option two: sure, how can I help you?

Jess: alright and do you remember what Cesar said before about a hand it’s not literal. the right answer is… sure, how can I help you?

Cesar: I love this game, Jess!

Jess: me too, me too! remember our trivia question? if something you bought was a bargain it wasn’t …

Cesar: and the answer is …

  • A) expensive… bargain means something on sale at a lower price than its true value so if you say that something you bought was a bargain it’s because it was not expensive.

Jess: Next Friday we will have a brand new podcast episode…

In pandemic time, I just go out only for the necessary, almost one time every three weeks. I prefer to make a big list of the things that I need.
Other thing that I usually do is to buy online, and I do the same, I make a big list and add all products to my shopping car.
I recommend that when you buy online, check carefully the details of all the products and put special attention to the measurements of each one.

If something you bought was a bargain it wasn’t…?
Answer: expensive.
It means that it was really cheap.


Vocabulary

  • aisle
  • bargain

How often do you go shopping?
Before the pandemic, I used to go to the supermarket like twice or three times a month. Since the pandemic started, we had to be be more careful, so we planned are shops really well to only go once every two weeks. Then we started shopping online, and we only go to the supermarket if it’s really necessary.
I used to buy clothes every two or three months, but now, there’s been months since I bought myself clothes.
But, online shopping has become a regular thing on me, now every item I want I look for it on amazon or some other online shop, but I control myself and I don’t buy everything I want, I just keep them on my Wish list, which is very long by the way.😅

Hi Everyone!!!

Very good podcast! Today I learn the spelling of the word aisle

Aisle means a walkway between two objects. These are often found between shelves and rows of seats.

a) Expensive
b) on sale
c) big
d) bought with cash

The answer is a, bargain means a thing bought or offered for sale that is cheaper.

How often do you go shopping?
I go shopping once a week but I usually buy my groceries for a month. Since the beginning of the pandemic, I’ve been ordering online and picking up my order. This an easy way to do it and I save a lot of time. The only problem is the quantity of bags that they give me. Sometimes for a small product, they give me two bags!! It doesn’t have any sense. But Anyways I always recycle or reuse those bags so I feel better!

Thanks for reading!

  • Trivia answer: a) expensive

  • New words I learned: Aisle, bargain, jar

  • I hardly ever go shopping. I don’t like to queue and be in places where there are a lot of people. I probably go shopping twice a year (both with my mother) on special dates like Christmas or a birthday. However, with e-commerce I save many of those uncomfortable moments, for example, every 15 days I buy food such as cereals, rice, sugar and salt through the rappi app.
    Something I usually do is find what I want online and go directly to the mall to buy it without being distracted.
