Jack has just bought a new smartphone online. He is talking to his Grandad who wants to
learn more about online shopping…
Jack: Hi Grandad! How are you? Look at the new smartphone I’ve just bought!
Grandad: It looks good, Jack! Where did you buy it?
Jack: I bought it from an online shop.
Grandad: Was it expensive?
Jack: Mm... it was quite expensive, but it’ll be worth it. This online shop had a great deal and
I got 20% student discount too!
Grandad: That’s great! I’ve never bought anything online before… Is it difficult to do? Will
you show me how to do it?
Jack: Grandad, it’s a piece of cake! All you have to do is go to the website and choose the
item or items you want to have a look at. You can add them to your basket, then go to the
checkout and enter your card details to pay for them when you’re ready. It usually only takes
a few days for your items to arrive in the post. It’s as simple as that!
Grandad: You know, everyone says old people are too slow to use computers but if you
could give me a hand, I could buy all sorts of things and maybe even some presents for you
Jack: No problem Grandad, let’s get started…
