Discuss some problems when buying products on the internet






  1. Nowadays, shopping is becoming popular in our life, I have two questions for you. Please give me your opinions about shopping habit. The first question is: How does advertising influence what people choose to buy?

Tran Thi Viet My: I think if the advertisement gives the essential uses that people need. They will tend to buy this product. However, when the advertisement is boring, people often ignore it not only is the content important but the creative of the advertising decides the view of the consumer.

Huynh Nhat Le: In my opinion, advertising influence people’s behavior negatively because it almost deprive us of free and conscious will while choosing what to spend money on.

Nguyen Thuy Linh: If there were no advertising and you went to a shop, then you  would just buy what you wanted based on may be what others have told you, what the product look like, or depending on the products, what it says on the label. Advertising build a band because they have seen it on television and on elsewhere.

Le Van Huynh: In my opinion, advertising provides us facilities for choosing products. Thanks to it, we can learn the advantage as well as disadvantage of the products. For instance, when advertising a product, companies mention that what kind of matters are used into the product. Therefore, we know whatever this product is good or bad and healthy or not healthy for each person. Due to this reason. Due to this reason, it’s easier for people to choose it.


Vu Thi Nga: For me, advertising has many influences what people choose to buy. Nowadays, on the internet has much advertising attract people to buy their products. When they introduce products, they usually present the good sides, good price, and images. Furthermore, they also bring some quality and effects of products. Besides, the buyer’s market also introduce and advertising products, even when you buy one product, you will be given on other it. They use the way to entice buyers.

Tran Thi Viet My: Ah, moreover, the advertising is not truthful with the quality of the product, it will make customers disappointed and never buy anything in advertising.

  1. Ok, the second question: Do you think that recent changes in the way people live have affected general shopping habits? Why or why not?

Nguyen Thuy Linh: Definitely, lifestyle has greatly changed people’s habit of shopping. The range of necessity has also enhanced to a great extent.

Tran Viet My:  Nowadays, the internet is developing more and more so many people often go shopping online. It is an interesting way. They can buy anything they want without wasting time to go to the shop. It leads to decrease the traffic jam.

Le Van Huynh: There are many ways for people to buy goods, the most change nowadays is shopping online. It is more and more popular because it is convenient. People become lazier, they just stay at home and choose to buy what they want and you will receive it quickly.


Huynh Thi Nhat Le: Currently, people have started for branded products and thus the markets are also providing them with the desired items. The changes are notable and it is done by advertisement. While people in the past mostly purchased products and goods they mostly needed, people nowadays purchase more than they actually need.

Vu Thi Nga: In my opinion, when people change their life, the way using the money to go shopping which has affected to life and habit. Because their life changes, the mentality also changes. They regarded shopping as hobbies while they have free time. And people worldwide are becoming more materialistic. A lot of people have much money, they buy products on the internet, they need nice design without caring quality products. When they receive goods and use it. They speak scornfully it about bad quality. Therefore, I think buying online or markets should watch quality products to have good or not.

Vu Thi Nga: Finally, thank you for your cooperation.

Foundations in Vietnamese Culture – Research Northern Delta

Our presenter: Ng. MaiTo get acquainted with part time job. I just decided to register only one subject named foundations in Vietnamese culture. I stated clearly that was not spending too much time on it. In the main part of this subject, the teacher divided our class into 6 groups for each part of Vietnam. Each group must prepare a slide and presenters to have a presentation. In the past, I always felt shy and fear when presenting in front of crowd people as well as teachers. Luckily, I joined a group that has many professional presenters on this area.

I used to leave feedback and people alway obey or agree with those opinions. I have to say that time looks like a boss. :D. And everything was ok.

We also had an awesome trip to the Vietnam museum of ethnology

You can see more here


In order to finish the final lesson, we had a small party. The cash surplus is taken from the excess fare of that museum trip. And here are our photos:

According to my personal feeling the subject was the best interesting and wonderful one that I have ever never learned before


It took my whole day to design this powerpoint, made over 60 slides (contain slide game) that were really incredible.

And I have a big assignment to finish this subject. That is Research Lê Sơ’s Culture period…

If there are too many grammar mistakes, please do not laugh at me because this is a draft post. Help me correct it by leaving your comment below. Thank you!
