"ZAPPING"? WHAT IS THAT?
This another Spanish invention. "Zapping" does not really exist in English. If you use it in Spain everyone will understand you but native English speakers will be confused.
The best alternative to use instead of "zapping" is: "channel hopping" (UK) or "channel surfing" (US). For example: "I am channel hopping because I can't find anything that is interesting to watch".
Hope that helps!
