Emily: But I like to go shopping, I can shop all day, and I don’t get tired.

Dora: I guess we’ll go to the department store, the more so, that we are just there.  Get off, I’ll park the car, there is a car park. Wait at the entrance.

Michael: It would be better to part now. You two are going to your ready-made clothes, and I’m going to the shoe department.

Dora: Call me up if you want me to come.

Michael: Certainly. Buy.

At the women’s clothing department

Emily: Do they sell clothes both for grown-ups and teen-agers here?

Dora: I don’t think so.

Salesgirl: Can I help you?
Dora: Oh, help us please. Where are things for teen-agers?

Salesgirl: This way, please.

Emily: Mum, I’ll call you up when I choose something. Bye.

At the ladies’outfitter’s

Salesgirl: What can I get you, Madam?

Dora: I’m looking for a new outfit for myself.

Salesgirl: What exactly did you have in mind?

Dora: I’m not quite certain, may be a blue skirt and a blouse to match.

Salesgirl: What size do you take?

Dora: My waist is 23 inches, my bust is 36 inches.

Salesgirl: Well, would you like to come this way please, and I’ll show you some blouses. How about this one? It’s silk.

Dora: I like the style but I think I’d prefer a cotton one in pink.

Salesgirl: I’m afraid we haven’t any in stock at the moment. But as you see we have some other colors.

Dora: How much is this red one here?

Salesgirl: It’s 5 euro.

Dora: It would go well with my new high-heeled shoes and the necklace my husband gave me. May I try it on?

Salesgirl: Yes, certainly. The fitting–room is over there. But why not take a skirt as well?

Dora: That’s a good idea. I like this dark blue one over here.

     (five minutes later, in front of the mirror)

Yes, I think it suits me very well. But don’t you think the skirt is a bit long?

Salesgirl: Oh, no, it’s the fashion now and fits you perfectly.

Dora: May be. How much is that all together with the skirt ?

Salesgirl: It only costs 14 euro.

Dora: That’s a bit more than I wanted to spend . But I like this outfit very much.

Salesgirl: Remember, the material is first-rate, and I think the style is very elegant.

Dora: So I’ll take it.

Salesgirl: All right .Thank you .

Dora: Goodbye .
