"Tôi thường xuyên liệt các thứ cần thiết trước khi tôi đi đến siêu thị."

Translation:I usually list necessary things before I go to the supermarket.

To list things would be to read them or say them aloud. This context makes it sound more like "to make a list."


Why do you think that? I'm not inclined to agree with you very wholeheartedly.


you typically write a shopping list before going shopping. less common is the practice of reading/reciting aloud said list before going shopping - after all, the list is there so you do not need to remember it yourself - at least, in my opinion.


so what word would be best to convey the sense of writing something down?

In english listing " things necessary" is the same as "necessary things"
