shopping at markets
1、 Do people in your country enjoy going to open-air markets that sell things like rood or clothes or old objects? Which type of market is more popular? Why?
Well … umm … in our country, it is uncommon to find various open-air markets that are regularly seen in western countries. Moreover, since four seasons are clearly distinct in most of the cities: extremely hot in summer while freezing cold in winter, the fact is that people don't like shopping in an open-air market under such kind of climate, therefore, majority people prefer to shop malls and supermarkets.

freezing cold 特别冷
2、Do you think markets are more suitable places for selling certain types of things? which ones? why do you think this is?
I think it is a mixed considering. Some products are more suitable for selling at markets, food and toys. And we can't deny the fact that some electrical cargos like television or cell phones sold at street markets are more likely to be counterfeit. That's exactly the reason why so many people tend to buy things like electrical items from the supermarket or shopping mall.
3、 Do you think young people feel the same about shopping at markets as older people? Why is that?
Well, first I have to say that there are many differences. The elderly people are more likely to shop at the open-air markets. They are passionate about buying stuff on sale or bargaining with street vendors for lower prices; while, young people prefer to shop at shopping mall. As for the reason, I guess it is a natural result of the fact that they were born and grew up in different times. Elderly people and young guys have totally different moral values. Consequently, it is quite understandable.
be passionate about 热衷于
street vendors 街头小贩
Shopping in general
1、 What do you think are the advantages of buying things from shops rather than markets?
Although they seem quite similar, they do share some differences. The initial advantage to buy things from shops is that if it is faulty, then it is possible to return and get your money back. Subsequently, buying from a trustworthy shop means the goods will be more reliable than the ones you buy from a street market.
2、 How does advertising influence what people choose to buy? Is this true for everyone
There are kinds of advertising in modern society. Undoubtedly, promotional advertisements contain fancy art elements that attract people to keep their eye on them. I think these are fairly influential to enable people to think about the advertised products. However, not all forms of advertisements can work out. As for me, I will be less likely to consider a product if the advertisements always appear in my spam or messages for its annoying.
keep one's eye on sth. 吸引眼球
3、Do you think that any recent changes in the way people live have affected general shopping habits? Why is this?
I suppose the answer is yes. In modern society, there is growing trend towards shopping on line with the busy lifestyle. Therefore, e-commerce has been around for a certain time and it is gradually breaking into traditional markets. Many large actual stores have closed down due to the competition of high street shopper. Instead, more and more people find it cheaper and convenient to purchase on line.
