Shopping and travel advertisements are all the way with us. They provide useful information for people to know what to buy and where to go. Now let’s try to use the ads below to practice two short dialogues.
1. What questions do you often ask when doing shopping?
2. What questions do you often ask in going sightseeing?
How long will it take us to get there?
When was it（the great wall）built?
Could you please recommend some of the attractions here?
