How can I explain these words to beginners(traditional-talkaitve-services).. my lesson is about the different between the souq and the shopping malls.
they say that the "souq" as in k.s.a is a traditional marketplace and the shopkeepers are very talkative and make shopping fun.
however, the shopping malls have many services.
^^^ how can i simplify these 4 beginners ?:l
I do not know how old of people you are giving this lesson to. But if I were going to explain these words to my seven year old daughter, I would tell her this:
- Traditional means when we do things some way just because that is how it has always been done. I would give an example from my own culture. Like telling her that men do not have long hair only because of tradition.
- Talkative just means that someone talks a lot. So I think that should be easy.
- Services -- I would say that this is when someone does something for you in exchange for money. Then I would give an example of what services are available in malls and not in souqs.
One thing that I would add to the above post is the human element.
The shopping mall is cold and impersonal whereas the souq is very one-on-one.
The word "souq" can also mean "mess" which reflects the crowds, sing-song voices of the vendors, and numerous tents, table, and vendor displays all mismashed into a tight, narrow space. It is difficult to describe the carnival-like atmosphere of this type of shopping venue.
