The topic of shopping could very easily come up in a role-play situation in the Speaking exam - it could be shopping for clothes or presents or food and drink. It could also come up in the Reading or Listening exams.

The good thing about this topic is that there aren't too many structures to learn - for example, "I would like..."

You do need, however, to make sure you know lots of vocabulary; for clothes, foods, drinks, etc.

First of all, you need to know the names for the different types of shops. The general word for shop is "magasin". This exercise will help you to see how well you know the words for shops.

Look at these pictures of shops. Click on the blue arrows to move back and forth through the list of shops. Once you have matched-up the name with the correct picture, mark your answer and see whether you are right. Then move on to the next question and try another:

Read the sentences in the panel at the top of the interaction, then click on the shop that contains the product. Mark your answer and then move on to the next question:
