IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic Bargain
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
1. Where can you bargain? Why?
Bargaining is a type of negotiation in which the buyer and seller of a good or service debate the price and exact nature of a transaction. Therefore, I think we can bargain when buying things on local markets and bazaars where local people freely sell their products. If we shop somewhere like super markets where the prices are fixed, haggling is impossible.
2. How do you bargain?
Well, I rarely bargain when buying stuff. However, my close friend does give me some tips, that we should bargain right at the beginning or at the end of the day. The sales person usually wants to sell well (even if that means they’d barely make a profit). Same applies to end of the day sales, though the influence is a bit less as compared to mornings.
3. Do Vietnamese people bargain?
Bargaining when buying something is fairly common in Vietnam, especially in local Vietnamese markets. Actually, the act of bargaining in Vietnam does not mean you disrespect the sellers. It is simply a method to get a good deal between you and the sellers, giving you the chance to buy the product at a considerably lower price.
4. What do you think of bargaining?
I think bargaining is a way of life in many cultures, like in Vietnam, it is considered a normal and often expected as a part of any shopping experience.
