Shopping online

Have you been shopping online more recently?

The benefits of shopping online are that you can try things on at home avoiding dirty and uncomfortable changing rooms, if you don´t like what you buy it´s easy to send it back and get your money back thanks to free returns and you can easily shop around to find the best offer – all from the comfort of your sofa!

You can learn more about shopping in module 8, unit 4.

The new «normal»

With the end of the state of emergency we now have to get used to the new normal of wearing masks in public and social distancing while getting into the swing of socialising without two kisses and, for many, going back to work.

How are you finding the new ‘normal’?

Get used to (+ -ing or noun) = acostumbrarse a

I’m getting used to working from home.

Get into the swing of (things or + -ing) = habituarse/coger el ritmo

After three months at home, it will take a while to get into the swing of going out again.

 Go back = volver

I will go back to work in the office three days a week.

Remember to stay safe!
