Well I was thinking the other day,
I really haven’t taken any of you on a field trip.
A field trip is when a teacher takes students somewhere outside of the classroom.
Normally you would learn in a classroom,
but sometimes the teacher will take students somewhere
and that’s called a field trip.
So today I thought we would go on a field trip to the supermarket
or what we usually call in English the grocery store.
Let me get my keys!
So in English we generally use the term, “grocery store”.
We don’t often use the term, “supermarket”
I know supermarket is quite common in other languages,
in French we say, “supermarché”
but in English we don’t often say supermarket.
It is an English word but we usually say grocery store.
supermarket是一个英文单词 只是我们更习惯说grocery store
And you could say for instance, “I have to stop at the grocery store.”
You could say, “I need to pick up some groceries.”
You could say, “I need to go to the grocery store.”
And you could also say, “I need to go grocery shopping.”
So that’s pretty common.
I need to get some food, so I’m going to go grocery shopping.
So let’s head over there!
Well we made it, I’m at my local grocery store
and I thought I would take you guys inside and we’ll look at each section of the grocery store
and I’ll kind of tell you what the name of the section is, and some of the items that you can buy there.
So let’s go on inside.
One of the first things we’re gonna need is a shopping cart
otherwise known as a grocery cart.
Let’s grab one from right here.
Now we’re ready.
The very first section of the grocery store that you’ll see,
especially in a Canadian grocery store is the produce section.
So the produce section is the section where you’ll find fruits,
the kinds of things that grow on trees like apples, oranges, bananas.
比如苹果 橘子 香蕉这类长在树上的
By the way if you are from a country that produces bananas
just a big, “THANK YOU!” from me
I love bananas. I eat one everyday.
But yeah you can see the sign up here we’re in the produce section
so you’re gonna find a lot of fruit.
You’re also gonna find a lot of vegetables.
You’re gonna find things like carrots and cucumbers and broccoli and those kinds of things.
比如胡萝卜 黄瓜 花椰菜之类的
So first section you usually see – the produce section.
Lots of fruits. Lots of vegetables.
Let’s move on to the deli section.
The next section you’ll usually find in a Canadian grocery store is the deli section.
And the deli section is where you would find
what we call luncheon meat or deli meat or sliced meat.
And this is the kind of meat that you buy pre-sliced
so that you can put them on sandwiches or buns or subs – sub sandwiches.
So the deli section is things like ham, things like bologna,
and things like oven roasted chicken or oven roasted turkey.
So that’s the deli section.
The next section you’ll usually find in the grocery store is the bakery section.
The bakery section has things like loaves of bread.
The bakery section would have fresh baked buns, fresh baked bread, things like french bread.
比如新烤的餐包 面包 法棍等
As well as yummier things to eat like cakes,
maybe muffins, and maybe croissants.
Another section you’ll find in the grocery store is the dairy section.
The dairy section has all things that would come from cow milk, goat’s milk, or sheep milk.
So here you’ll find things like milk, you’ll find things like butter, and you’ll find things like cheese.
所以你在这里可以找到牛奶 黄油 奶酪等产品
Another section at the grocery store is the frozen food section.
In the frozen food section you’ll find things like frozen pizzas. You’ll find ice cream.
You’ll find frozen fruits and frozen vegetables.
So all of the parts of the grocery store that we have visited are on the outside walls of the grocery store.
Those sections are on the perimeter, the outside walls of the store
but in the inside of the store are aisles like this
and these are aisles of things like cookies, things like bottled juice, things like canned goods
通道两侧会卖饼干 瓶装果汁 罐头之类的食物
and there is usually these really nice signs above each aisle
you can see them here that help you know what’s in each aisle.
Well hey that was a quick tour of the grocery store.
I hope this video was helpful for you as you continue to learn English.
