Hi there, I’m Jenna and welcome to Wall Street’s “Two-Minute English”. Today, I’ll give you some common statements and questions most commonly used in a clothing store.

 

Different ways of asking someone to SHOW you something:

  • Can you show me the ….. please? (Informal)
  • Could you show me the ….. please? (Informal / Formal / More Polite)
  • Would you be so kind to show me the ….. please? (Formal)
  • I’d like to see the ….. please.
  • Could you direct me to the …. aisle please?

 

When you want to TRY something, you can say:

  • Do you have any testers for these (lipstick) colours?
  • Can I try it / them on, please?
  • Could I try it / them on, please?
  • Is it okay if I try this / these on?
  • Where can I try it / them on?
  • Where are the changing rooms, please?

 

If you’d like the shop assistant to give you a DIFFERENT SIZE OR COLOUR, you could say:

  • Do you have it / them in size ….. please?
  • Do you have this/these in a smaller / bigger / larger size please?
  • Can I try the larger / small one please?
  • Do you have it / them in a different colour please?
  • This is a little too tight / loose, do you have another one?

 

When you finally decide what you want to BUY, you can say:

  • Wow, this one is great. I’ll take it!
