Today’s Italian Conversation is the first on a new theme: fare shopping!
‘Fare shopping’, of course, is a phrase which contains another borrowed word, and one which is in common use in Italian.
Careful though, as ‘fare shopping’ is not used to mean ‘do the shopping’ (groceries), for which there’s another term ‘fare la spesa’.
Rather ‘fare shopping’ could be clothes, consumer goods, and so on. As in ‘I love shopping with my girlfriends.’
Anyway, in today’s first shopping dialogue, we’ll be getting ourselves two of modern life’s indispensables, a SIM card and a smart phone.
Listen to it here: Shopping – Comprare una SIM e uno smartphone
