  3. Good afternoon.
    Before I go to my room and be getting ready to learn English at the first hours of morning, I ask my family be far of my room, because I need pay attention.
    Every day I be making a purchase. In the morning I go to the bakery for bread and milk, in the afternoon I go to the fruit store for several fruits. And once or twice a month I go shopping to the mall and buy clothes in some stores, and make some purchase in the fast food stands.
    In my country there are not a mail carrier service; it was using very time ago. Now If we want to receive something, then we should use a delivery company like Zoom or MRW. Of course, if you pay the service you can receive the mail or package in your home or office.
    Thanks a lot.
