- For Teachers
Is there any difference between these expressions, do the shopping and go shopping? I googled them, but didn't find anything. I was taught at school that when you 'do the shopping', you buy things you need regularly, like foodstuffs, soap, toothpaste etc. When you 'go shopping' you simply go to the shops. Is that correct? Dictionaries like OALD and LDOCE failed to provide any info on that.
Thank you, Munch!
