#060 Going to the Supermarket in English

Welcome to the Speak English Now Podcast, your resource for practicing your English speaking and listening. You will also learn about lifestyle and culture, language, vocabulary, and how to learn English more effectively.


Hi, everyone! I’m Georgiana, your online English teacher. My mission is to help you to speak English fluently.

  • Are you a spender? Today I’m gonna talk about the tricks that supermarkets use to make you buy more than necessary. 
  • You’ll also improve your speaking with a funny mini-story.

Ok! Let’s start!

When you leave the supermarket, have you ever wondered why you spent more money than you originally planned?

I do 🙂 If it happens to you, you may think that you don’t know how to manage money, that you are a spender, or simply that you don’t have enough discipline, but don’t worry because supermarkets follow a whole series of very powerful marketing strategies that induce the buyer to buy, so don’t feel too guilty 🙂

By the way, a spender is someone who spends money unnecessarily. And another interesting expression: “overspending,” which means spending more than planned or necessary. 

These supermarket strategies can simply be called tricks. The truth is that supermarkets have more tricks than a magician.

Let’s take a look at a few of them, and learn some vocabulary on the subject.

With Georgiana’s method  I have started speaking English from minute one and this is exactly what I needed. With the traditional method you will practice grammar, grammar and grammar, but with Georgiana’s method you will practice listening and speaking and in my opinion this is the most important thing when you are learning a new language.
