Shop for new words

TV shopping channels are a great source for new vocabulary. The television shows communicate in fairly simple language and they are backed up by slick websites. Adverts and sales media are always useful for language learning. Because they seek to generate sales they readily get their message across ... not that I've ever been tempted to buy.

Take a look at HSE24 for a range of products. Click on TV if you want to see any of the programmes. Have you noticed how shoppen has replaced einkaufen in modern German? Do you shop online or buy from TV shopping channels?
