Before beginning this scenario, do a Global Level Check and then a Level Check!

Your most anticipated holiday is here! Your family from overseas are coming to spend two weeks with you and your parents over the winter break. Your parents have been very busy with work and have asked for your help with the holiday shopping by purchasing gifts for all the members of your family. They would like each person to receive an article of clothing, and one other gift. You can spend $50 per person. Think about the likes and dislikes of each member of your family and what gifts might be most suitable. Then, when you arrive at the department store, ask a sales associate for help by describing the members of your family, including their size, and responding to the sales associate’s suggestions. When you are finished, email your parents to let them know your shopping trip was successful!
