"Queremos ir de compras hoy."
Translation:We want to go shopping today.
"Ir de compras" was confusing me quite a bit until I realized that "compras" in this context is not a conjugated form of the verb of "comprar" but rather the plural of the noun "compra." http://www.spanishdict.com/translate/compra
Thought I'd leave a note of that here for anyone else struggling to understand the grammar behind what otherwise looks to be mismatched verbs (queremos, ir, compras).
Comprar means buy, comprando means buying. Ir de compras means go shopping. Even though you may buy things when you go shopping, it is not exactly the same thing.
"Ir de compras" is an idiom (modismo). We don't translate idioms literally.
How we can know if the verb in spanish is doing action?? Like ending with 'ing' in english??
It's used quite a bit in the UK, as a synonym for liking something.
