First, students read an article about signs of compulsive online shopping. We highlighted some words in the article which might be useful to students during further discussion. They need to match them to their meanings given. There are words such as afford, guilty, severe, unreasonable, etc.


After reading the text, students have to discuss a few questions and express their own views on the topic. Next, they write five things people could do to fight shopping addiction. Finally, they share their ideas in pairs or groups, and choose the best five.

Is there a minimum subscription period if I choose a monthly subscription?

No, there’s no minimum required number of subscription months. You can cancel any time you want. Basically, you can sign up and then cancel your subscription the next day, which will mean you have access for 1 month and won’t be charged again.

What currencies can I pay in for my subscription?

Our default currency is USD (American dollar), but you can also pay in EUR (euro) or GBP (British pound sterling). You can change the currency you want to pay in at the Pricing page before selecting a subscription plan.

How can I edit an e-lesson plan?

You can get your own editable copy of an e-lesson plan and make changes to it. To do so, either (1) make a copy of it on your Google Drive (preferable method) or (2) download it in a Powerpoint format (but formatting might be a bit off so we can’t guarantee that it will work well).
