Bài mẫu chủ đề “Describe a problem you had while shopping online or while shopping in a store”
Bài mẫu tham khảo:
A particular time that I was in a store and had a problem was over the summer when my family and I went on vacation to Thailand.
As most of my family does not speak much English, and the shop worker in the store also did not speak much English, or any Vietnamese, then the responsibility was left on me to attempt to do the communication with the store worker. My father absolutely loves tea and is a huge fan of collecting teas that he likes from each of the places we visit while on vacation. Well, when we went to this fancy tea shop, they were nice enough to let us try multiple different samples of tea. All of the names were in Thai which made it all the more difficult as I can’t read Thai. My father decided that he loved all the teas except one, and so I singled that one out. Around this time my mother pulled my father away to look at things in the window of the next shop over, leaving me to finish the transaction. Right after this we were planning to go to the beach down the street, so I was trying to get some advice about good places to eat around the beach from the staff, and was not paying attention to what they were doing. They ended up only charging me for the tea that my father had specified he didn’t want, then put it in a bag and handed it to me.
We didn’t learn of my error until we were about to board our flight back home to Vietnam. My father was very upset.

What kind of service do you think is good?
I think that what defines good service is respect. Often in stores staff will follow you around very closely in case you need anything because they think that waiting on your hand and foot is good service. While I see the logic behind this I personally disagree and think that it is often an invasion of my personal space.
Invasion /ɪnˈveɪʒn/ (n): Sự xâm phạm
Ví dụ: The actress described the photographs of her as an invasion of privacy.
What are the differences between shopping online and in stores?
The biggest difference for me is not being able to physically touch something before buying it. With some things, this doesn’t make much of a difference, pieces of technology for example. Where this becomes a much bigger issue is when shopping for things like clothes. If I cannot try it on first to make sure it fits, or feel the fabric to decide if it will be comfortable, it is very possible that I will not be happy with the purchase after it arrives.
fabric /ˈfæbrɪk/(n): Vải
Ví dụ: They sell a wide variety of printed cotton fabric.
