Clothes Shopping in English – Spoken English Lesson

Clothes Shopping in English – Spoken English Lesson


Rheedan: Hello my name is Rheedan. Vicki: Hello, I’m Vicki. Rheedan: Welcome to Oxford Online English.
In this lesson you can learn about how to shop for clothing. Vicki: Have you bought clothing in English
before? Rheedan: If not, we hope to change that with
this lesson. And if you have, we want to make the next time even easier. Vicki: Shopping for clothing will give you
a good opportunity to practice your English. Rheedan: We’ll start by showing you a sample
dialogue. Vicki: Then we’ll learn a few phrases that
will help you when you go shopping. Rheedan: Hello, can I help you? Vicki: No, thanks. I’m just browsing. Rheedan: Okay. Let me know if you need any
help. Vicki: Actually do you have any dresses in
stock? Rheedan: Yes. Let me show you. Vicki: I like this one. Do you have it in
another color? Rheedan: Yes, this dress also comes in red,
blue, black, and green. Vicki: I’d like to try the blue one, please. Rheedan: Sure, the changing rooms are over
there. Vicki: Can I try this in a smaller size? Rheedan: Sorry, we don’t have any in stock
left in that color. Would you like to try another color? Vicki: I really like the blue one. Rheedan: We have a special offer, buy one
get one free. Vicki: Really? That’s a bargain. Rheedan: Yes, we have a lot of special deals
on our clothing. Vicki: In that case, I’ll take the red one
and the black one. Rheedan: Would you like anything else? Vicki: No, thanks. I’ll just get this. Can
I pay by card? Rheedan: Of course, please enter your pin. Vicki: What is my pin number? Oh, yes. Rheedan: Please wait one moment. Sign here. Vicki: Can I get a receipt? Rheedan: Of course, here you go. Vicki: Thank you. Have a nice day. Rheedan: Thanks for shopping with us. Now,
let’s look at some of the words you’ll need when going clothing shopping. Vicki: When you first enter the clothing store,
the shop assistant might greet you and ask if you need any help. If you are just looking
around, you can say that you are browsing. ‘Browsing’ means looking at many things in
a shop to see if there is something you want to buy. Rheedan: If you’re looking for something in
particular, you can ask, “Do you sell jeans?” “Do you have jeans?” “I’m looking for jeans.”
“Do you have jeans in stock?” If the shop has the clothing you’re looking for, you will
want to try it on before you buy it. You can try on the clothing in the changing room,
a room for trying on clothing. Vicki: After you’ve tried on the clothing,
you might want to change the size or colour. You can ask, “Do you have this is another
size?” “Do you have this in a size eight?” “Do you have this is another colour?” “Do
you have this in green?” You’ve tried on the clothing, it’s the right size and the right
colour, now you want to know how much it costs. If you’re buying one item, you can ask, “How
much is this?” If you’re buying more than one item, you can ask, “How much are these?”
If the clothing costs a lot of money, you can say, “That’s really expensive.” If the
clothing isn’t expensive, you can say, “That’s really cheap,” or, “That’s a bargain.” If
you choose to buy the clothing, you can say, “I’ll take them,” or, “I’ll take it.” Rheedan: Once you’ve finished shopping and
are getting ready to pay, the shop assistant might ask you, “Will there be anything else?”
“Can I help with anything else?” They will ask if you want to pay with cash or by card.
Usually they’ll just say, “Cash or card?” Vicki: You can answer, “I’ll pay by card,”
or, “I’ll pay by cash.” Don’t forget to get a receipt. Say, “Could I have a receipt please?”
I hope these phrases help you the next time you’re shopping. Rheedan: That’s the end of the lesson. Thank
you for joining us! Vicki: You can see more free lessons on our

  1. Hi ! I have an english presentation about this and you help me so much !!!! Thank you continue with your fantastic work!!!!

  2. Thanks for your useful video.l have a question.do both of them have english accent or one with the american accent?

  3. What's the best phrase that will tell you by itself (without hearing the previous conversation)… that the person saying it has been trying to choose between a red T-shirt and a blue one?, and now that he's decided he tells that to the shop assistant, ideally including the word "please". So… Please pack me the red T-shirt? Is that ok?

  4. Hi, tha's really helpful. Just one question in my mind, should I say "I'll pay by cash" or "I'll pay cash"?
    Thanks.

  5. So, mam at the glance I can recognize that you are not native English speaker. You have a little bit strange accent. It is very difficult to understand your English without reading. I did not catch your drift! But i respect you and the policy of Oxford OE and just continue. Maybe I am totally wrong, please answer me. Thank you!
