discussed 11/11

Speaking

I bought some clothes and some food and VIP accounts about video apps and nothing.
Some clothes have some discounts and they are cheaper than before but yesterday I received the clothes I think it looks so bad.
The picture of the clothes look so beautiful so I bought it and when I received the clothes I think it looks so bad.
Maybe it is the reason why it is so cheap.
I bought everything on taobao, I think JD sells mobile phones, computers and some tvs so I think if I want to buy clothes, food I will choose taobao.

I think single’s day is the way of sales because many years ago it didn’t have singles day and I think the sellers want to sell something well so they created single’s day.
When I was a high school student I didnt know single’s day and at that time Taobao was not very popular.
I think we use mobile phone all the day, I think when I am wake up I will use my phone to chat with my parents or my boss or receive the emails so mobile phone is very useful/important.
I think I use phone for more than 8 hours a day.

Mobile phone has many features. a lot of people rely on mobile phones. I use it to search for something I don’t know and now I called my parents my friends on weixin I think I don’t need much features.

I want to use WeChat one for work one for my friends but now I just use one. I don’t to apply a new one because my last job didnt use WeChat for work. We use emails so I didnt have a second one but my new job need too communicate with my colleagues in WeChat. When I joined the new company I didnt realize they used WeChat everyday so I haven’t applied a new one but now I want to apply the new one but I think my colleagues need to add the new account it is not convenient.


I bought some clothes and some food and VIP accounts for/of video apps and that’s it.
Some clothes had some discounts and they were cheaper than before but yesterday I received the clothes I thought it looked so bad / it looked nothing like the pictures.
The picture of the clothes looked so beautiful so I bought it and when I received the clothes I thought it looked bad.
Maybe it is the reason why it is so cheap.

I bought everything on taobao, I think JD sells electronics so I think if I want to buy clothes, food I will choose taobao.

many years ago we didn’t have singles’ day and I think the sellers wanted to find a way to boost sales so they created single’s day.

When I was a high school student I didn’t know (about) single’s day / I hadn’t heard about it and at that time Taobao was not very popular.

I think we use mobile phone all the day/through out the day/ the whole day. As soon aswake up I will use my phone to chat with my parents or my boss or check my emails so my mobile phone is very useful/important.
I think I use my phone for more than 8 hours a day.

Mobile phones have many features. a lot of people rely on mobile phones.

I use it to get information / get answers to things I don’t know. Now I call my parents my friends on WeChat. I think I don’t need many features.

I want to use 2 different WeChat accounts: one for work and one for my friends but now I just use one. I haven’t applied for a new one because in my last job we didn’t use WeChat for work / my last job didn’t require us to use WeChat. We used emails so I didn’t need a second one but my new job needs me to  communicate with my colleagues on WeChat. When I joined the new company I didn’t realize they used WeChat everyday so at that time I didn’t apply for a new one  but it would be inconvenient for my colleagues (to add a new account)
