It's a joke. The man says that the sandwich looks tasty (delicious) and the woman says that it also tastes tasty. Best wishes, Adam The LearnEnglish Team

Shopping always takes much of my time espacially when i bought my clothes ,so i prefer go to shopping once or twice a month " get my salary then go to shopping ", I like to take alook at the stores , and touch what i will buy so i don't like online shopping " it's my point of view".
*can i use " could do with " in negative case" and how .

I've never heard anyone use ' could do with' in the negative, so I don't think it's possible. The opposite would be ' I don't need'. Best wishes, Adam The LearnEnglish Team

I going to shopping around once per week, I usually bought some toys for my baby. internet is a good way to buy things, because we can bought some different things from another country. And It is very easy to search same things and it is cheap than a shop.
But in another face, I never bought a food from the internet, It was very dangerous.

I am a fond of going shopping, especially in big shopping centers. Because it's a kind of relaxing for me. And new modern clothes make me more beautiful and happy.

Internet is not a good way to buy things because maybe you see the image not true, they're not real things, you can buy a fake,^^

I don't like shopping. If I do it, I do it quickly.

This activity is useful to me. Can you give me more example for 'could do with'? How i can use the phrases 'tasty-looking'?
replied on 8 September, 2011 - 20:20 Poland AdamJK's picture Permalink
If you could do with something, you want it. 'I could do with a rest after all this work'.
We can use 'looking' after an adjective to describe the appearance of something. For example, ' he's a friendly-looking man' or ' what a strange-looking building'. Best wishes, Adam The LearnEnglish Team Pages
