hi everyone my name is Bridget and welcome to today’s lesson the topic for
this lesson is top 15 must know phrases to go shopping how much is it how much
is it when you ask how much something is you are asking for the price so if you
are in America and you say how much is it someone will say it is $10 it is a
thousand dollars it is a million dollars so you are going to use this phrase a
lot when you go shopping especially at flea markets when the prices aren’t
always listed on the object or item themselves do you have this in another
color do you have this in another color a lot of times when you go clothing
shopping for example you will try something on and you’ll like how you
look but you kind of want the shirt to be not green but maybe red red would
look better so you ask the person who’s working there excuse me do you have this
in another color do you have this in another color it’s a way of asking
literally if the item of the clothing that you are trying on or anything that
you want to buy you’re asking if there are other variations of it if there are
other colors of that item do you have this in a medium do you have this in a
medium instead of medium you can put in whatever your size is so when you’re
shopping you might find a dress that you really like you might find a jacket or a
coat you really like and you’re not really seeing your size you’re looking
through all of them and your size isn’t here so you ask someone who’s working
excuse me do you have this in a medium excuse me do you have this in an
extra-small I use this all the time when I’m
shopping so I’m sure you will too it’s a way of asking if they have your size I
want two of these I want two of these if you tell someone I want two of these
it’s literally saying I want two of whatever it is you want to buy that’s
all I can say about that may I see it may I see it if you ask may I see it
it’s usually asking to see something that is behind glass so for example if
you are looking to buy jewelry you go to a jewelry store and you see a beautiful
ring and it’s behind glass so you ask the person working there may I see this
ring may I see it and the person will pull it out and give it to you for you
to try on in front of them so they know you’re not going to steal it can I try
it on can I try it on if you’re ever shopping if you’re looking for a new
sweater or a new pair of jeans you’re going to want to try it on to make sure
that it fits you that it looks good that it’s your size so if you find an article
of clothing you would go up to someone who works there and you would ask can I
try this on excuse me can I try this on this is a very very common thing that
you hear in clothing stores people always want to try on the clothing that
they want to buy just to make sure that it fits and it makes them look good I
like that one I like that one I like that one if you say I like that one it
means you’re expressing which of your options you prefer it’s probably going
to be the one thing you buy I don’t like this color I don’t like this color if
you’re buying a new set of plates and you’re shopping and you you like the
style of these plates but you don’t like color you would say I don’t like this
color do you have this in a different color I just taught you that do you
remember I don’t like this color it means that you like the style maybe but
you don’t like the color that it’s painted or dyed or whatever I love this
color I love this color maybe you have a color of shirt that you look so good in
so anytime you see it you go oh I love this color
if you ever say I love this color it’s probably something that either looks
really good on you or just looks really good to you it’s a color that you just
love to look at do you take returns do you take returns
when you ask someone who works in a store
do you take returns it means that you bought something from the store you
brought it home and you decided you don’t really like it maybe when you were
at the store you didn’t have time to try it on so when you got home you put it on
in front of the mirror and you realize this does not look good on me or maybe
it doesn’t fit so when you come back you’d say do you take returns I want to
return this pair of these jeans that I bought I want to return this hat do you
take returns every store you go to will have a different return policy so it’s
always smart to ask what sort of return policy that store has just in case you
end up not liking the item that you buy do you take credit cards do you accept
credit cards can I pay with a credit card these are all ways to ask if you
can use your credit card to pay for whatever purchase you are making
sometimes stores or restaurants only accept cash and it’s always smart to
know ahead of time before you do all your shopping and
realize you don’t have any cash and you only have a credit card so you can say
do you take credit card do you accept credit cards can I pay with my credit
card can I get a receipt please can I get a receipt please can I get my
receipt please so I know you didn’t scam me a receipt is a proof of purchase it’s
it’s something that you use to keep track of the money you’ve spent to keep
track of everything you’ve bought little slip of paper that shows the item and
how much you paid this is something that helps both you and the company the
company will have a record of having sold this thing to you and you will have
this as a record of how much you paid and if you save the receipt you can use
that to do returns can I use this coupon can I use this coupon a coupon is a
discount that a company offers to use at their store a coupon is something that
you have to show to the cashier when you make your purchase so if you find a nice
coat that you love you would go and pay for it and present your coupon if you
have a coupon it means that you are getting a discount that you will have to
pay less money for the item coupons are great to have and companies that give
out coupons are awesome it helps you save money could you gift wrap it please
could you gift wrap it please to gift wrap something means to put wrapping
paper and make it look like a present so around the holidays when people are
buying presents for one another a lot of times you will hear people saying could
you gift wrap it please which is telling the other person look this is going to
be a gift can you make it look nice can you make it look like a present and
sometimes I don’t mean gift wrapping paper or putting a nice bow on top to
gift wrap something means to present it to look like a gift Arthur
any sales going on are there any sales going on this is a very hopeful question
to ask in a store you’re asking if there are any sales at this time a sale is a
period of time with discounted price it means you are going to pay less which
means saving money there are seasonal sales there are sales for particular
holidays or just random sales to get rid of old stock so you never know you
should always ask are there any sales going on because it might save you money
