Unité 2: On fait des achats

In Unité 2 you learned to talk about your possessions. When you want to buy something such as a camera, computer or backpack, where do you go? Do you prefer to go to the mall? a department store? or order from a catalogue? Department stores such as La Redoute and Les 3 Suisses are very popular in France.
