Yesterday I was teaching my student about the verb shop. I told him that we use "go" with "shop" to mean to go and buy things. e. g.
1) You are going shopping.
2) You were going shopping.
3) You go shopping.
4) You went shopping yesterday.
Every thing was going well until I formed a question in this manner:
"Are you going to New York (insert any place here) to go shopping?"
I felt this sentence to be wrong. Not grammatically but this is not how people ask. As far I know, this is how such question should be formed
" Are you going to New York for shopping"
But again, I could be wrong.
Please tell me which one is correct and is used by the natives.
