Oh Miss
I believe
I've something--amiss.
It's in reference to
what exactly I'm doing
to dodge the snog of Fool.
Soooo then
what's it I do
If to make quid at pool
I'd admit impediment
that I'd nicked my Daddy's que?

Here in the US ALDI is good stuff cheap. Just not everything can be found there. And some items I refuse to get at ALDI. Customer service? More like “you buyUbag.” 🙄

I used to pack my stuff at the counter in Lidl and Aldi in Glasgow. I was always super fast 🤣 I agree with you on Sainsbury's. It's super expensive.

'Taste the difference' (sainsburys) , 'extra special' (tesco) and 'deluxe'(asda) are names given by these supermarkets to a supposedly more elite product range. However, Sainsburys catch phrase in it's ad campaign is 'try something new today', not 'taste the difference' which asu said, is a range of foods within sainsburys.

To my Asian taste buds, Marks and Spencer ready meals are best. Other brands are simply tasteless.

Saying England but meaning London all local small shops near me all have car parks. All the supermarkets have a seasonal aisle. Ready meals are always unhealthy and have sugar in it. Ok I can't watch anymore good luck in England with this advice. Best just go to the local market

The “shopping”experience I could remember after 2 decades left England. Back then, I drove to open field where many people drove there too with lots of stuff not needed anymore, and people could exchange the stuff in the age of abundance (result of overly successful capitalism). Wonderful to experience it. Love England.

Thanks for interesting insight about the “Self Check Out”, and the machine’s saying “unexpected thing in bagging area”. Probably modern AI and camera eg Amazon shop could auto-detect if any item missed the check out scanning step XD. People are trusted and the AI cam. is trusted too :D

I've watched this video, and a couple of others she's presented, my observation is that Great Britain and the USA pretty much mirror each other and the only real differences are the brand names on the front of the buildings. I should imagine a person's adjustment to the other country should be very easy. HOWEVER! There is that thing about the Brits driving on the wrong side of the road! (I just know that is going to cause some disagreement , so please forgive me!)

There are self checkouts in Sweden also. But extra checks are random. So once in a while you get a message that the staff will check your items.

Hi Jade! Thanks a bunch for explaining where and how to do shopping in England! Great guidance! Also, thanks a lot for your manner of really natural British English and for speaking, sort of, just straight out of your mind! Not from a script. So, that was coolest experience of English for me ever! You look stunning too! Have a nice day and take care!

A nice video.
A few things worth mentioning.
Marks and Spencer (and to a lesser extent Waitrose) own brand ready meals are in a different class to those sold by the major supermarkets although not of the quality that you would have found 30 years ago. Also unfortunately they tend to cater for more modern tastes and many of the old favourite dishes are gone (I am 60 years old). They also sell more expensive fresh prepared food products, such as fresh prepared lobster, which will not be found in other supermarkets although the top of the range products can be very expensive. I buy food from Marks and Spencer but do not normally buy other household products as a) the range is quite limited b) they sell only their own brand, for example they sell only their own brand of coffee and not my favourite brand and c) they tend to be more expensive.
It is also worth mentioning that in the UK supermarkets sell cigarettes (they don't in some countries) and can be the cheapest place to buy them especially Sainsburys. There is usually a kiosk selling cigarettes, lottery tickets, scratch cards etc.
Personally I like Sainsbury's for general shopping. When mentioning loyalty cards you forgot to mention supermarket credit cards. Sainsburys Mastercard used in Sainsburys in conjunction with a Nectar loyalty card will get you 1.5% value of your purchase in nectar points and will also get you nectar points on tobacco spend at 1% as the credit card doesn't distinguish between different purchases unlike loyalty cards which are not valid for tobacco. Tesco, Marks and Spencer and Waitrose all have a credit card to get a loyalty reward on your purchases.
Morrisons are ok. It's true that they were originally a Northern brand but don't forget that they took over Waitrose several years ago and therefore expanded into the south more than before.
Don't like ASDA. Find then cheap and not very nice and would never buy their ready meals. However, they are good for cheaper branded non-food products, such as toilet rolls, which are the same wherever purchased.
Lidl and Aldi don't use. Very downmarket environment.
Not a fan of Tesco but that is more personal preference than any real criticism.
You also did not mention petrol stations which almost always have a corner shop type shop these days but always more expensive. These shops also sell cigarettes and over the counter medical products such as paracetamol which in some other countries they don't.
Beware of T K Maxx. I have bought branded clothing items which were not the same or the same quality as the same branded item bought more expensively in House of Frazer. I am not sure if these products were manufactured for a foreign market or were simply imitation.
I regret the decline of the traditional department store. House of Frazer are very good but can be very expensive and the customer service is not what it once was.
I have a confession to make. I have never ever stolen from a shop but no longer pay for the carrier bags when I use a self service till. I just press no bag. My reason is quite simple. The Government imposed a 5p charge for a branded plastic bag with the logo of the supermarket on, which advertises the supermarket. I reluctantly accepted this. But now some supermarkets are charging as much as 20p for such a bag which I regard as pure profiteering and refuse to pay it. 5p OK, 20p No.

Lovely description of us Deutsche. Bit of cliche, isn't it ?

And Aldi and Lidl are both German retailers. They always were discounters to save money buying necessary grocery and not emotions.

This is no doubt one of the most painful experiences I have had watching a video! Her delivery is so slow and continously broken up while she gathers her thoughts to figure out what the Hell she is going to say's maddening!! She needs to make herself a demo tape to view so she can improve the flow of her delivery and avoid the hesitancy in her remarks, seemingly to decide what she is going to say next and if it's important enough to mention! I also wish she had made a blanket statement that the opinions expressed were hers and hers alone instead of continually reminding us of the same! I also found myself confused (we Americans tend to be easily confused! LOL!) with some of the terminology used. I would imagine there are a lot of people outside the U.K. watching this and need a further explanation of some of these terms. I know this sounds harsh, but I found the video unwatchable despite my desire to be educated on the subject. I see from the previous comments that literally no one agrees with my assessment of this video. I find that strange but could it mean I'm wrong? No, that's impossible! LOL!! Everybody have a good day!

"Lidl and Aldi are European, not British" ??? So, UK's geographic location is not in Europe? Aren't you confusing Europe with European Union? Or do you feel, as islanders, that UK is a tiny continent?

I know many Europeans and Germans who do not frequent Aldi, Lidl and Tesco, not even in the UK. These are affluent people. In the UK, they prefer Waitrose and small speciality shops, delis and farmers markets. In their view, the middle ground would be Sainsbury's and M&S.

Thank you so much Jade. The fact that you made this lesson for us, international students of English, is proof that you want us to learn English culture. And for that, you have become my favorite ESL teacher. Keep doing what you're doing. You deserve more students and a lot more subscribers!

Publix is hot in America lately. They charge a bit more but the stores are new, clean and organized. I guess these things are worth paying more money. I know where everything is in Kroger stores, so I don't mind Kroger.

Thanks a lot for your explanations Jade,they are very helpful to have a clear idea where to buy when people travel to England,I remember when I was to London some years ago in Christmas festivities that I used to buy in Sainsbury's because some of them were located in the north of
London where I was staying spending my vacations.I remember that I found there a great variety of beverages...Lidl is in spain as well in almost everywhere......Thanks again and have a great day.
