b) I would like to visit the Mall of America. I often go shopping and I like to see new things. At this mall I can watch a film, ride a roller coaster and even see sharks. I can shop at over 520 different stores and eat delicious snacks at the food court. I can’t wait! / I wouldn’t like to visit this mail I think you can get lost easily and with so many stores I think you would have trouble finding the store you want. People in my city often shop at the Golden Atoll. They like to go shopping there because they can find everything in one location. The mall also has a cinema and a food court.
