WHERE TO BUY FOOD?

Imagine: you are visiting France and you want to buy food. You decide to go to: “une grande surface” (a supermarket).

Let's
see all the actions you'll have to do. (By the way, you can't put a chimpanzee in a trolley. I mean, you are not allowed). To make sure you are going to do the right thing, you'll ask someone outside the supermarket:

- Alors, vous prenez un caddy à l'entrée ou, si vous n'avez pas beaucoup de choses à acheter, vous pouvez prendre un panier. Regardez le signe, ici, sur la porte. Les singes sont interdits. Ensuite, dans le supermarché, vous avez des rayons: le rayon boucherie, le rayon fromages, le rayon surgelés, le rayon bricolage, etc. Quand vous aurez terminé vos achats, vous irez payer à la caisse. Vous pouvez demander une livraison à domicile. Généralement, le supermarché vous livre sous 24 heures. A la caisse, vous pouvez payer par carte ou en liquide.
