CHAPTER “SHOPPING”
Text: Shopping
When we want to buy something, we go to a shop. There are many kinds of shops in every town or city, but most of them have a food supermarket, a department store, men's and women's clothing stores, grocery, a bakery and a butchery.
I like to do my shopping at big department stores and supermarkets. They sell various goods under one roof and this is very convenient. A department store, for example, true to its name, is composed of many departments: readymade clothes, fabrics, shoes, sports goods, toys, electric appliances, cosmetics, curtains, cameras, records, etc. You can buy everything you like there.
3653790381000There are also escalators in big stores which take customers to different floors. The things for sale are on the counters so that they can be easily seen. In the women's clothing department you can find dresses, costumes, blouses, skirts, coats, beautiful underwear and many other things. In the men's clothing department you can choose suits, trousers, overcoats, ties, etc.
In the knitwear department one can buy sweaters, cardigans, short-sleeved and long-sleeved pullovers, woollen jackets. In the perfumery they sell face cream and powder, lipstick, lotions and shampoos.
Sales assistant with customer in clothing store
In a food supermarket we can also buy many different things at once: sausages, fish, sugar, flour, tea. At the butcher's there is a wide choice of meat and poultry. At the bakery you buy brown and white bread, rolls, biscuits.
Another shop we frequently go to is the greengrocery which is stocked by cabbage, potatoes, onions, cucumbers, carrots, green peas and what not. Everything is sold here ready-weighed and packed. If you call round at a dairy you can buy milk, cream, cheese, butter and many other products.
The methods of shopping may vary. It may be a selfservice shop where the customer goes from counter to counter selecting and putting into a basket what he wishes to buy. Then he takes the basket to the check-out counter, where the prices of the purchases are added up. If it is not a self-service shop, and most small shops are not, the shop-assistant helps the customer in finding what he wants. You pay money to the cashier and he gives you back the change.

Text: At the grocery store
Today Tara is going shopping. She is not shopping for fun things like clothes or shoes, but for some food for supper and things she needs around her house. This kind of shopping is for groceries so Tara goes to the grocery store. A shop is sometimes called a store. It's a good idea to make a shopping list before you go shopping so that you know what to buy. But Tara has forgotten to do this.
So Tara takes a shopping basket and goes to look at the snack bar. She doesn't want to buy any fast food which has been cooked at the store. Tara wants to look at the menu selection to get some ideas. Ah. She has seen something she likes – now she is going to the fruit and vegetable section to start shopping. At the fruit and vegetable section, she sees Matt. Matt has a shopping trolley (in America they call this a shopping cart) because he has a lot of shopping to do.
5334062865While Matt decides if he wants to buy some apples, Tara takes an iceberg lettuce, and puts it in her shopping basket. The bakery section smells good! Look, there's cookies, and cake and pie. Mmmm – why not have a fruit pie for dessert? Tara puts the pie in her basket and goes to the dairy. Matt is already there, and he has got a carton of fruit juice and a tub of ice cream. Tara looks at the chilled goods while Matt goes down the aisle
A shopping trolley / shopping cart to pet supplies. His friend has asked him to get some pet food for his cat. Matt gets some cat food, and Tara takes a carton of milk for her coffee. Hmmm what next? Maybe something to go with the lettuce. Tara goes to the canned food shelves, and looks at the tinned food. On the bottom shelf are cleaning materials for her clothes and for cleaning the kitchen, but Tara does not need any of these. She takes some bottled asparagus instead.
Now for some meat. Tara wants some cooked meat, so she goes to the delicatessen. She does not want seafood, but how about pizza or roast chicken? There is a ham on the butcher's scales, but Tara decides she will have the box of chicken nuggets which is also on the counter.
Well, that's all Tara needs! Now she has to pay for her shopping, so she goes to the nearest checkout. The woman rings up Tara's purchases at the till. The till shows Tara what she has bought and how much it will cost. Tara could use the card reader to pay with her debit card, but she decides that today she will pay in cash using money she has in the pocket of her jeans.
So Tara's shopping has been bagged. Now she is leaving with a lettuce, bottled asparagus and chicken nuggets for her meal. After that she will have a pie and some coffee with the milk she has just bought. Enjoy your meal Tara!

At the Clothing Department Store
Text A:
I have some shopping to do today. I want to go to the department store and buy a jumper.
At the counter:
2972486561975Hello! I'd like to buy a jumper. I see that you've got a wide choice of jackets, sweaters and jumpers. They are really very nice. Please, help me to find something for me. I don't know the latest fashion and I hope that you can recommend me something really fashionable. My size is 40. I like to wear loose cloths. And I'd like a loose jumper.
What about the colour? I'd like something bright. I don't like the brown colour. I look very pale in brown cloths. Blue or red will do better. And I'd like a jumper made of wool.
Clothing Department Store
Will this one suit me? I like the colour and the cut. It is very soft. And that jumper with an ornament is very pretty.
I'd like to know your opinion. Are ornaments fashionable this season? I want to try these two jumpers on. Where can I do it?
Thank you very much. Both jumpers suit and fit me. Now I know that the proverb 'The tailor makes the man' is true. But I'm in two minds. I don't know which jumper to buy: the plain one or the ornamented one. If you recommend me the ornamented jumper I'll take it.
Thank you very much for your advice. Where can I pay?
Text B:
Store Clerk: Hi. Welcome to Angie's. Can I help you find something or are you just looking?
Marianne: I'm not sure. Aren't you having a sale right now?
Store Clerk: Everything on these two racks over here is on sale.
Marianne: Thanks. Oh, this sweater is nice, but looks a little big. Do you have this in a smaller size?
Store Clerk: Let me look. Oh, here's one. Would you like to use the fitting room to try it on?
Marianne: Sure. Thanks.
...a little later...
Store Clerk: How did it fit?
Marianne: Not too bad. I think I'll take it.
Store Clerk: Great. (She takes it off the hanger) How would you like to pay?
Marianne: Well, I'm almost maxed out on my credit card, so I think I'll pay with a check.
Store Clerk: Okay, with tax it comes to $24.93.*
Marianne: Who should I make the check out to?
Store Clerk: Angie's.
Marianne: Here you are.
Store Clerk: Can I see some I.D. too, please?

Text: Shopping the clothes
(Extract from the book by Sue Townsend "The Queen and I". Abridged)
Sayako came out of the changing room in Sloane Street* wearing this season's suit, as featured on the cover of English Vogue*. Last season's suit lay on the changing room floor in an untidy heap. She surveyed herself in the full-length mirror. The manageress, svelte in black, stood behind her.
“That colour's very good on you”, she said, smiling professionally.
Sayako said, “I take it and also I take it in strawberry and navy and primrose*”.
The manageress inwardly rejoiced. She would now reach this week's target*. Her job would be safe for at least another month. God bless the Japanese!
Sayako walked over on stockinged feet* to a display of suede loafers.
3872865230505“And these shoes to match all suits in size four”, she said. Her role model was the fiberglass mannequin* which lolled convincingly against the shop counter, wearing the same cream suit that Sayako was wearing, the loafers that Sayako had just ordered and a bag that Sayako was about to order in navy, strawberry, cream and primrose. The mannequin's blonde nylon wig shone under the spotlights. Her blue eyes were half closed as though she were captured by her own beauty.
She is so beautiful, thought Sayako. She took the wig from the mannequin's head and placed it on her own. It fitted perfectly.
“And I take this”, she said.
She then handed over a platinum card which bore the name of her father, the Emperor of Japan.
As the manageress tapped in the magic numbers from the card*, Sayako tried on a soft green-coloured suede coat which was also being worn by a red-haired mannequin. The suede coat cost one penny less than a thousand pounds.
“What other colours do you have this in?” asked Sayako of the assistants, who were packing her suits, loafers, bags and wig.
“Just one other colour”, said an assistant (who thought, Jesus, we'll have a drink after work tonight).
She hurried to the back of the shop and quickly returned with a toffee-brown version of the sumptuous coat*.
“Yes”, said Sayako. “I take both and, of course, boots to match, size four”. She pointed to the boots worn by the red-haired mannequin.
The pile on the counter grew. Her bodyguard standing inside the shop door shifted impatiently.
When the Princess and her purchases had been driven away, the manageress and her assistants screamed and yelled and hugged each other for joy.
Sayako sat in the back of the limousine and looked at London and its people. How funny English people are, she thought, with their wobbly faces and big noses and their skin! She laughed behind her hand. So white and pink and red. What bodies they had! So tall. It wasn't necessary to have so much height, was it. Her father was a small man and he was an Emperor.
As the car set off on its journey towards Windsor, where she was staying at the newly opened Royal Castle Hotel, Sayako's eyes closed. Shopping was so tiring. She had started at 10.30 in Harrod's lingerie department* and now it was 6.15 and she had only taken an hour off for lunch. And when she got home she had that puzzling book to read, Three Men in a Boat. She had promised her father she would read at least five pages a day. It would improve her English, he said, and help her to understand the English psyche.
She had already ploughed through The Wind in the Willows*, Alice in Wonderland and most of Jemima Puddleduck* but she had found these books very difficult, full of talking animals dressed in the clothes of human beings.
At Hyde Park Comer the car stopped suddenly, the driver swore and Sayako opened her eyes. The bodyguard turned around to face her.
“A demonstration”, he said. “Nothing to fear”.She looked out of the window and saw a long line of middle-aged people crossing the road in front of the car. Many of them were wearing beige anoraks that Sayako, a devoted shopper, identified as coming from Marks and Spencer*. A few were carrying signs on sticks.
Nobody appeared to take any notice of them, apart from a few impatient motorists.

When you want to buy something you go to a shop or market. Some people are fond of shopping, others are not. But all of them go shopping now and then*.
In Britain buying food is usually done at the baker's, at the butcher's, at the sweet shop or at the greengrocer's. If you need either sugar or rice, you go to the grocer's. If you need fish, you go to the fishmonger's. At the dairy you can buy dairy products like milk or cream.
But nowadays shopping in supermarkets becomes more and more popular, because it’s convenient as they operate on the self-service system. It means you walk round the shop and choose what you want. You don' put goods into your bags before paying for them. You can use trolleys. At the exit you pay for all your goods at the cashier. Supermarkets don't close for lunch. If you are a traveller in Britain, you should know some shopping habits in the country. For example, you should remember that fish shops are closed on Mondays. You should know that sales are popular with British shoppers. They are held twice a year by shops and department stores to get rid of old stock*. Some of shops and supermarkets in Britain have got leading positions.
3529965582930Sainsbury's supermarkets are leaders in food and drink selling. These very big supermarkets are for richer people who want to do shopping once a week or even once a month. Tesco's supermarkets are leaders, too. But they've got a different image*. They sell goods at lower prices. British Home Stores (BHS) is a group of large shops selling mainly clothes but also food and other products for the houses.
Buying clothes in Britain is a problem for Europeans, because they have different size system. Ready-made clothes departments in London usually use both British and European sizes on the tags.
There are some traditions about shopping in Britain. Mothers usually buy clothes for their small children, but British teenagers usually buy clothes by themselves. The British usually buy food in supermarkets once a week. The food shopping in most British families is usually done by mothers.
Don’t forget that the British use “Please” a lot. As for “thank you”, remember that in Britain in informal situations and in some shops, lots of people say “cheers” instead.

Shopping in London
(from "Spotlights on Britain " by S. Sheerin, G. Seath, G. White)
Most of London's big department stores are in Oxford Street and Regent Street. They are always crowded, but at sale times, in January and July, there are so many people that it is difficult to move and it is usually safer to go in the direction of the majority!
These days, it is often difficult to distinguish the goods in one large store from those in another. If you are looking for something "different" (but cannot afford the prices of Bond Street) it is certainly worth going to New Covent Garden. This used to be England's biggest fruit and vegetable market, but a few years ago, the market was moved to a new site on the other side of the River Thames. The old market, now called "New Covent Garden", was restored and converted into a shoppimg centre. There are now more than forty shops of many different kinds, and there are several places to eat and drink. The opening hours are different from most other shops: they open at 10 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. As well as shopping, there is entertainment with lunch-time theatre groups and classical, jazz, folk and pop music.
Kensington and Knightsbridge is an exclusive area of London. There you can find the department store that is the symbol of expensive and high-class living – Harrods. People say you can buy anything in Harrods, including wild animals – they even have a zoo which will sell you lion cubs as well as more common pets such as dogs, cats or parrots.
Exercise 1: Prepare to write a reproduction of the text.

Text: Shopping in the USA
Shopping in the USA has two very important tendencies that can be determined as «Born to shop» and «Caveat Emptor » (the Latin expression that means «the customer runs risks of buying goods of inferior quality»). Stores are full of wares of various kinds and prices. If you are in funds shopping can be extremely interesting and bring you real satisfaction. In this case, you can find out that you are «born to shop».
2606040739140But on the other hand, we can free the so called «Caveat Emptor». Purchasers have to be careful. The owners of the shops put different kinds of advertisements and offers like «sales» or «reduced prices» in order to decoy buyers and push the articles. Of course, such signs attract people's attention. But before buying something it is better to examine the label to be aware of validity of commodities. Very often fashionable things can be made of cheap materials.
Shopping in the USA for brands like Apple, Dell, Levi's etc.
In the USA the price for the same goods in different shops can be different. High prices do not always mean high quality. If you are going to buy expensive things you would better to look in at several stores. It will give you the opportunity to compare goods and make the best choice.
There are many shops where even licensed articles (such as clock, cameras, videos, electrical appliances, etc.) are sold at a discount and their value results much cheaper than at the department stores. There’re similar clothes shops.
Shopping malls are typical for America where a lot of specialized stores and a big department store are joined in one building. There is also a restaurant and some food shops. There can be a movie hall as well so the clients can spend the whole day at the shopping mall. Clients usually pay cash or by credit cards. Customers are better to keep the receipt to be able to exchange the thing they bought in case of necessity or return it and get a refund.
Many stores organize special seasonal sales and experienced buyers are looking forward to visiting them. November and February is high time for reducing prices for winter clothes.
January and August are «white sales days» when towels and sheets are sold out. People learn about discount periods from the newspapers and thus can save a lot of money.
In the USA you can find very expensive department stores, the ones with more moderate and cheap prices. The difference in price is significant in these shops. If your American friend offers you to accompany you and go shopping together, you would better to tell him the sum of money you can afford to spend. He or she can advice you the right place to go.

Она не была завсегдатаем распродаж, хотя и знала, что на вешалках с табличкой «Скидка 50%» можно найти только маленькие размеры. Разглядывая вещи, она случайно натолкнулась на блузку 14 размера. Она примерила её и та оказалась ей как раз впору. Бренда подумала, что эта блузка подойдёт к её любимой чёрной юбке. К тому же блузка была почти даром. Бренда заглянула в свой кошелёк и решила, что может позволить себе купить её. Больше не раздумывая, Бренда подала деньги продавцу.

Text: Shopping in Russia
Shopping is a significant part in everyday life of every person living in Russia. In every Russian city you will find numerous malls and supermarkets offering a great choice of goods from A to Z depending upon the customer's budget. World famous brands are represented in large shopping centers; in some Russian cities fashionable boutiques cover particular central streets and small blocks attracting customers attention by well designed shop windows with clothes, shoes and jewelry represented by exclusive brands. Luxurious brands become more and more popular among Russians. Young Russian designers are of great demand among those who are seeking for new look, fresh ideas and extraordinary style.
34290203835Despite the fact that large shopping centers are located not only on the city centers, but in the suburbs, it is still hard to find an empty place at the parking lots nearby.
Foreigners can notice that there are many small kiosks in Russia where one can find not only printed media (newspapers, magazines), but also chocolate, sweets, drinks and tobacco, therefore kiosks are very convenient for the people who are pressed for time and are unlikely to drop in at the supermarket during a busy day.
In Russia like in any other country shopaholics look forward to sales seasons: big sales are announced in January and July, mid-season sales are in late autumn and spring.
Many glossy magazines cover news from fashion industry and are popular among Russian ladies and gentlemen. These magazines provide useful up-to-date information about new arrivals and the latest tendencies in fashion. Perfume and cosmetics stores like «Ile De Beaute», «L'Etoile», «Rive Gauche» publish their own editorials with the news of make-up and perfume industries and recommendations of leading beauty experts.
Many stores accept payment both by credit card and in cash. Please be advised the only currency accepted in Russian stores is Russian rouble.
Internet shopping becomes more and more popular in Russia, it opens great opportunities for busy people working in large cities: customers are getting used to buying online, nevertheless the authentic human interest to touch, try and examine the goods prevails and does not let customers forget about the great feeling of pleasure they can get from the real shopping in the city malls.
Exercise 1: Guess the meaning of the following international words:
Budget, brand, boutique, kiosk, tobacco, chocolate, designer, shopaholic, perfume, cosmetics.Exercise 2: Give the Russian equivalents for the words and word expressions below:
Shopping center, shop windows, clothes, shoes, jewelry, to be represented by, exclusive, luxurious, to be of great demand, fresh ideas, extraordinary style, printed media, convenient, sales seasons, make-up, internet shopping, payment, opportunity, to buy online, pleasure.
Exercise 3: Some women include shopping in their list of favourite activities. Men traditionally hate it. Here's what some of our compatriots think:
3365538100Nina, 24: I love shopping, but not on a Saturday or during the sales, when the shops are really crowded. I prefer shopping alone. Buying things often takes me a long time because I never buy the first thing I see. I always look around other shops to see if I can find the same thing cheaper. I'm quite good at finding a bargain. I hate shopping in large supermarkets, and prefer buying food in small shops or street markets.
Elena, 32: I like shopping, but it depends who I go with. Trying to shop with young children is a nightmare! I don't like shopping with my husband either because he's always in a hurry, and worries about spending money. But shopping with friends is fun, and I like going on my own too.
422529024765
Kirill, 28: I don't really enjoy shopping. In fact it's a pain! I find it stressful because I'm always afraid of making mistakes. I've got a collection of awful 'mistakes' at the back of my wardrobe, which I never wear! But I don't mind going with my girlfriend, because she helps me choose. I think women are better at buying clothes than men. They've got better taste and they always know what's in fashion.
Ivan, 30: I'm not interested in shopping at all - in fact I hate it. My wife buys all my clothes and brings them home. I try them on and if I like them, I keep them. If not she takes them back. Choosing things from catalogues and the TV shopping channels is the only kind of shopping I enjoy.
Who said this?
1. I like going shopping on my own.
2. I prefer shopping alone.
3. The TV shopping channel is the only kind of shopping I enjoy.
4. I don't really enjoy shopping.

Text: How to shop sensibly
Shopping is a normal pass time that we will all have done and can enjoy, here are a few things to know about shopping:
1. Take a friend. It's easier to make a decision on something when someone else is giving their opinion too. Bring along a friend or family member whom you trust; not only for their opinion, but to keep yourself safe. Besides, it's more fun shopping with a friend than alone.
4025265342902. Set a budget for yourself. It's hard, but it’s always better to set a budget and stick to it. It's better in the long run. If you have trouble doing this, leave your credit card at home and only bring cash. Bring an amount of cash that you're comfortable spending – if your spending limit is $50, bring $50 to spend! This ensures that you won't blow your money in one day.
3. Make a list of things you specifically need or want. This will prevent you from overspending or wasting time. Before you hit the stores, go on-line and look at the websites of your favourite stores. Find items that you like there, then write them down and find them in the store.
4. Go into stores. You should consider trying different stores (like boutiques). You never know what you'll find in that little unknown store. Maybe some new clothes or something you'd like to improve your style with. Just because "everyone" doesn't shop there doesn't mean it's a bad store; it might become one of your favorites! Thrift shops also have some surprises in them, if you really take the time to look around.
5. Find the stuff you like. Be careful before you buy them, though. 6. Check out the material. If you're buying something that you don't try on, like socks, always touch them before buying. Stick your hand in it, and see if it's itchy, or just right. Maybe there's a stain? Ask for another one that looks in better condition. Or perhaps it looks flimsy, or as if it will fall apart within months? It's better not to consider it. If you are allergic to some materials, read the label to see what it is made of beforehand.
7. Try the things you like on. Make sure the things that you're buying fit you properly. You should feel comfortable and yourself in your clothes. Try on many sizes before making a decision.
8. Check yourself out in the mirror. If the store has a three way mirror, it's always best to stand in it before purchasing. The jeans you're trying on could look great from the front, but saggy in the back.
9. Never be afraid to ask a faculty member for help. Love the shirt, but can't find your size? It's their job to help you, so don't be shy about asking the salespeople.
10. Don't buy something if you're not totally sure about it. Only buy something if you really love it and are willing to wear it. It's helpful to try to think of at least two things that you can wear it with too, just so that you know you'll have something to wear it with. If you aren't sure about that top, don't buy it. It's better to leave it rather than buy and regret it.
Exercise 1: Give the Russian equivalents for the words and word expressions below:
To spend, overspending, to set a budget, to try on, thrift shop, stuff, to fit, to feel comfortable, to make a decision, (three way) mirror, purchasing, salespeople, to wear, from the front, from the back.
Exercise 2: Translate the following quotations and comment upon them:
Cato the Elder: “Do not buy what you want, but what you need; what you do not need is dear at a farthing”.
Stephen Butler Leacock: “Advertising may be described as the science of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it”.

Text: At the grocery. Shopping for one
(A story by Anne Cassidy. Abridged)
Groceries are much the same the world over – especially the queues at check-out points. What extraordinary things other people are buying! There are odd snatches of overheard conversation too. But what if one is living alone, “Shopping for one?”“So what did you say?” Jean heard the blonde woman in front of her talking to her friend.
“Well,” the darker woman began, “I said I'm not having that woman there. I don't see why I should. I mean I'm not being old-fashioned but I don't see why I should have to put up with her at family occasions*. After all...”
Jean noticed the other woman giving an accompaniment of nods and headshaking at the appropriate parts*. They fell into silence and the queue moved forward a couple of steps.
3429049530“After all”, the dark woman resumed her conversation, “how would it look if she was there when I turned up?”* Her friend shook her head slowly from side to side and ended with a quick nod.
Should she have got such a small size salad cream? Jean wasn't sure. She was sick of throwing away half-used bottles of stuff.
“He came back to you after all”, the blonde woman suddenly said. Jean looked up quickly and immediately felt her cheeks flush. She bent over and began to rearrange the items in her shopping basket.
“On his hands and knees”, the dark woman spoke in a triumphant voice. “Begged me take him back”.
She gritted her teeth together. Should she go and change it for a larger size? Jean looked behind and saw that she was hemmed in by three large trollies. She'd lose her place in the queue. There was something so pitiful about buying small sizes of everything. It was as though everyone knew.
“You can always tell a person by their shopping*”. She looked into her shopping basket: individual fruit pies, small salad cream, yoghurt, tomatoes, cat food and a chicken quarter.
The cashier suddenly said, “Make it out to J. Sainsbury PLC”. She was addressing a man who had been poised and waiting to write out a cheque for a few moments. His wife was loading what looked like a gross offish fingers* into a cardboard box marked "Whiskas". It was called a division of labour.
Jean looked again at her basket and began to feel the familiar feeling of regret that visited her from time to time. Hemmed in between family-size cartons of cornflakes and giant packets of washing-powder, her individual yoghurt seemed to say it all*. She looked up towards a plastic bookstand which stood beside the till. A slim glossy hardback caught her eye. The words Cooking for One screamed out from the front cover. Think of all the oriental foods you can get into*, her friend had said. He was so traditional after all. Nodding in agreement with her thoughts Jean found herself eye to eye with the blonde woman, who gave her a blank, hard look and handed her what looked like a black plastic ruler with the words "Next customer please" printed on it in bold letters. She turned back to her friend. Jean put the ruler down on the conveyor belt.
“Of course, we've had our ups and downs*”, the dark woman continued, lazily passing a few items down to her friend.
Jean began to load her food on to the conveyor belt. She picked up the cookery book and felt the frustrations of indecision. It was only ninety pence but it seemed to define everything, to pinpoint her aloneness, to prescribe an empty future. She put it back in its place.
“So that's why I couldn't have her there you see”, the dark woman was summing up. The friends exchanged knowing expressions and the blonde woman got her purse out of a neat leather bag. She peeled off three ten pound notes and handed them to the cashier.
Jean opened her carrier bag ready for her shopping. She turned to watch the two women as they walked off, the blonde pushing the trolley and the other seemingly carrying on with her story.
The cashier was looking expectantly at her and Jean realized that she had totalled up. It was four pounds and eighty-seven pence. She had the right money, it just meant sorting her change out. She had an inclination that the people behind her were becoming impatient. She noticed their stack of items all lined and waiting, it seemed, for starters orders*. Brown bread and peppers, olive oil and, in the centre, a packet of beefburgers.She gave over her money and picked up her carrier bag. She felt a sense of relief to be away from the mass of people. She felt out of place*.
Walking out of the door she wondered what she might have for tea. Possibly chicken, she thought, with salad. Walking towards her car she thought that she should have bought the cookery book after all. She suddenly felt much better in the fresh air. She'd buy it next week. And in future she'd buy a large salad cream. After all, what if people came round unexpectedly?

Exercise 5: Translate into English:
Не успела Бренда выйти из магазина с новой отличной покупкой, как у неё отлетел каблук. А она купила туфли в этом месяце. Бренда направилась в обувной магазин, твердо решив обменять их. Продавец был готов обменять туфли, но в продаже не было обуви этой модели. Бренда провела полчаса в магазине, примеряя каждую пару своего размера. Но никакие туфли ей не подходили: одни были слишком широки, другие жали, у третьих был слишком высокий каблук. Единственные туфли, которые ей понравились, были слишком дорогие. Продавец посоветовал ей зайти на следующей неделе, когда они получат новый товар.
