Unit 1 Shopping Avenue

This unit discusses the influence of the consumer society in our daily choices. We believe that consumer issues can affect all students and make them think about the rise of supermarkets and, more recently, of online shopping. We will see how, thanks to the Internet, the public space that are the stores is easily installed in the private space of our living room.

Key question: how does the Internet make the public space of stores accessible from the private space of our living room?

Final task : A hypermarket has just opened next to your place. You write a letter to the mayor to complain about the inconvenience caused by this commercial actvity and you suggest him to promote online shops which are more convenient.
