Compare markets in ancient times with those of modern society.

古代
货郎担,推车卖东西

现代
进出口公司,证券交易所,网上购物公司,商场

相同
集市,店,货摊,地摊,市场

Analyze the similarities and differences:

相同 为什么?
古代和现代都有集市、店、货摊、和地摊。 货摊和地摊不需要很多钱。店可以大,也可以小。小店也不需要很多钱。集市很热闹。在集市大家可以买东西,还可以和朋友谈天。虽然现在有网上公司,可是很多人还是喜欢去商店买东西。

 

不同 为什么?
古代有货郎担,推车卖东西。现在没有了。 现代人用自行车,汽车、或者卡车。 货郎担和推车又慢又不方便。
现在有进出口公司、证券交易所,还有网上购物公司,可是古代没有。 现在有电话、电脑、飞机。人越来越聪明了。电脑把我们和世界连在一起了。我们可以上网买各种东西。现代人喜欢快。
现在有商场,可是古代没有。 商场里有各种店,买东西很方便,而且不怕下雨下雪。现代人觉得方便很重要。
