Isabel, Dawit and Yessenora study ESOL at Leeds City College. Their teacher wants them to practice English outside the class as well. They go to college on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Today is Tuesday so they don’t have a class at the college. They are at a shopping center in Leeds at the moment. Yessenora is wearing a beautiful grey long dress and black shoes, Isabel is wearing a nice, red blouse and black trousers and Dawit is wearing a comfortable white T.shirt, black jacket and black jeans.
They are talking about shopping and food. They are speaking English. They are very happy. Yessenora wants to buy some clothes, Isabel is looking for some books and Dawit is going to buy a new mobile.

Yessenora is walking into a trendy clothing store. She is
trying on a beautiful yellow dress and looking at herself
in the mirror. "This dress is amazing! I am buying it for
the party next week," she says happily. She takes the dress to the till and asks the shop assisstant, 'Can I pay by card please?. 'Sure madam' he replies.

Dawit is in a mobile phone shop. He is checking the latest smartphones and comparing their features. "I am thinking of getting a new phone. The camera on this one is fantastic!" he says to Isabel, who is at a nearby bookshop. Isabel asks him, 'how much is it?'. He tells her that it is £1000. He says that it's expensive but he really likes it.


Comic Panel 3
Isabel is sitting in a corner of the bookstore, flipping through the pages of an English learning book. "I am enjoying this book. I am going to buy it because it will help me improve my language skills," she says with a smile.


Comic Panel 1
After a successful shopping trip, the friends meet up at the caf'e. Dawit is having a fresh smoothie, Isabel is enjoying a slice of tasty pizza, and Yessenora  is having a hot cup of coffee. The food and drinks cost them £3 each. They all pay by card. "Today has been a great day! We are learning English and having fun at the same time," Isabel  says to them.
As they sit together, chatting and laughing, the friends realise that learning English doesn't always have to happen in a classroom. Sometimes, it can be as exciting as a day of shopping at the mall. And so, with their bags full of new items and hearts full of joy, the ESOL students go back home, looking forward to meet again in class next day.
