Department Store

I will have more coverage of these topics in the regular English Lesson section, but I want to provide some general things specifically for travelers.  In this lesson, we will cover shopping, bank, and post office terminologies and sentences for travelers.

Department Store

There are only a few things that you need to know how to say.  Here is a small list.

Finding something

"Do you have different sizes for this shirt?"
"Where are your blue jeans?"
"Do you have regular T-Shirts here?"

"Where is the dressing room?"
"Do you have a dressing room?"

Shoes

When you see a shoe that you like, you have to find a worker and have them bring your size out to you.  Here are some ways to say what you want.

"Can I try this shoe on in a seven?"
"Can I get this in nine and a half?"
"Can I get this in a size six?"

If you don't know what your size is, they will take your measurement.

"I don't know what my size is?"
"I don't know what size I am."
"Can you take my measurement?"

When you go to the register, you don't need to say anything.  However, they might ask you a bunch of questions.

"Did you find everything you needed today?"
"Was anyone helping you with this?"
"Would you like to open a credit card?  You can get 10 percent off of everything for today."

These are all yes and no questions so answer appropriately.
