Now I’m not wearing shoes. I usually wear sneakers. The ones I wear the most are called Adidas Superstar and they are white with black stripes. From this video I learnt that the sentence “they are big too big” is used to say that something is enormous. I also learnt that in England the size of the shoes is different from ours.

Can you describe the shoes you're wearing now? What new words and phrases did you learn from this video? Answer: Actually the shoes I wear is black and red and size is 28. I like black shoes all the time. It's my favourite colour. "I’ll have a look for you" this phrase is new to me. I learnt it today from this website. This phrase is nice to use when someone wants to have something from you and you're searching for it.
