Then, the teacher created three scenes happened in fresh market: Scenario one was they would go to fresh market with their parents. Scenario two was they would buy something in the fresh market and also they would communicate with”……多少钱?/可以便宜吗?/……三块五毛一斤. Scenario three was they finished their task in fresh market.
