Lesson 10
A. Reading
Shop Till You Drop
Find differences between traditional markets and modern supermarkets

What kind of shopping can you do in your country?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- --
Catalog Shopping
People in the United states often shop from catalogs. There are special catalogs for almost
every need – including clothing, furniture, health and beauty products, and things for the
kitchen. People also order about 40% of their music from their music club catalogs. Customers
say that music stores are too noisy

Television shopping
Television shopping began in 1986. About 5% to 8% of the American public now shops by
television. Some popular shopping channels are The Home shopping Network and QVC

Customers say that television shopping is easier than shopping in a store. How do they buy
things? They make a phone call and charge the item to their credit card. And TV shopping
channels are on late at night, so people can “go shopping” anytime

Computer shopping
Is computer shopping the way of the future? About 37% of American households now have
personals computers. And shopping by computer (or “shopping on-line”) is interesting to more
people every day. Already, shoppers can use their computers to order many different products,
such as computer products, flowers, food, T-shirts, and posters. And new on-line shopping
services appear every day. Soon people may be able to shop for anything, anytime, anywhere in
the world

C. Grammar
Content Clauses
We often meet this type of sentences:
I understand that I must return the books on time

She said that she was leaving for the holiday

We know where he lives

In the grammar of a language, these sentences are called content clauses or noun clauses

Remember that we have studied adjective clauses in the lesson about noun phrases. Sometimes, it
is necessary to be able to differentiate between these two constructions

Adjective clauses are those which function as qualifiers of a head word. A noun clause,
however, functions as a noun. It stands by itself as a noun. It does not qualify another noun

We also have studied about the forms and functions of nouns. Nouns can be subjects,
objects, or complements in sentences. They can also come after prepositions. The same thing can
happen to noun clauses. Noun clause can be subjects, objects, or complements of sentences. They
can also become objects of prepositions. Study the following examples

Function Examples
Subject Who finishes first will get a present

What goes up must come down

Object They think that the test is on the next day

You may decide what time you want to go

Complement Love is what you can give

It seems what it looks

Object to preposition We talked about what it seemed to be the right solution

You can speak to whoever you meet first

As we have learned earlier, again, this construction is not a question form. It is a sub-
ordinate clause. It has the grammar of a positive sentence, not an interrogative sentence. Compare
these below?
(1) What time do you want to go?
(do) + inversion question mark
(2) You may decide what time you want to go

no inversion no question mark
In the first sentence, (1), we have the rules for forming the question: the use of the
auxiliary do, the inversion of the subject and predicate, and the question mark at the end of the
question. But in the second sentence, (2), we do not have the interrogative rules. It is an ordinary
affirmative sentence. Look again:
(1) … what time do you want to go?
(2) … what time you want to go

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you know which kinds of shoppers actually visit your site?

But wait-do you know which kinds of shoppers actually visit your site? Probably not, and that is where we come in to tell you about the eight different kinds of personality types for online shoppers, recently identified by CoreMedia.

What do shoppers want from a shopping experience?

These shoppers would rather be doing anything else other than shopping. This means that they will require the most engagements, and will need to be entertained to make the purchase from you instead of a different store. The rule of thumb for this shopper is to make their experience interactive.

Is shopping for what you really need making you feel frustrated?

In contrast, shopping for what we really need rarely produces a spectacular high. We don’t feel particularly exhilarated while walking in and out of store after store searching for a very specific type of item. In fact, we may feel tremendously frustrated when our efforts don’t yield the results we desire.

How do you engage the reluctant shopper?

Much like the Reluctant Shopper, this customer is best engaged by rich content like visuals or magazine-style layouts. They want to see the story behind the product, but also want that buy button to be right in the open when they have finally made an emotional connection to the brand or product. Personalize their experience as much as you can.
