At the Department Store 在百货公司
May I see these ties？
Here's a nice－looking one.
These are silk ties embroidered with dragons， pandas or goldfishes.
Will there be anything else， madam？
Could you tell me where the ladies' department is？
Will you show me some pure silk blouses？
What size do you want？
Can I try it on？
The fitting room is right over there.
Let me check for you.
No， it's a little too loud， but thank you just the same.
I'd like to buy a white shirt.
This is a very fine shirt.
Don't you have any less expensive shirts？
I'd also like to see the tie in the showcase.
The price is all right，but it's a bit showy，isn't it？
A：Can I help you， madam？
B：Yes，may I see these ties？
A：Certainly， madam. Here's a nice-looking one.
B：Yes， it's nice. But my friend wants a silk tie with a Chinese pattern.
A：All right. Please come over this side， madam. These are silk ties embroidered with dragons，pandas or goldfishes.
B：They are beautiful. I'll take these two. How much？
A：Only twenty yuan each. Will there be anything else，madam？
B：No， thank you. Here's the money. Oh， could you tell mew here the ladies' department is？
A：Yes. It is on the next floor up. （In the ladies department）
B：Will you show me some pure silk blouses？
A：Sure. What size do you want？
A：Here's yellow one and it's large.
B： Good. Can I try it on？
A：Yes， the fitting room is right over there.
B：（Ten minutes later） Excuse me. This is too large. Have you got any medium size？
A：Let me check for you. Yes， we do， but only in scarlet. Would you like to try it on anyway？
B：No，it's a little too loud， but thank you just the same.
A：Good afternoon， sir. May I help you？
B：Yes. I'd like to buy a white shirt.
A：Yes，sir. I'd be glad to show you some. What size，please？
A：Here's one in your size. This is a very fine shirt.
B：How much is it？
A：These are fifty-nine each.
B：That's a little more than I want to pay. Don't you have any less expensive shirts？
A：Yes，I think I can find some for you. Here are some forforty yuan，and then we have some here for thirty-five.
B：Thirty-five will be all right. I'll take this one.
A：Are you sure one will be enough？
B：Yes， that's all I need just now.
A：Do you need anything else？
B：I'd also like to see the tie in the showcase.
A：Which one， sir？
B：The green one.
B：Yes， that one. Is it pure silk？
A：Yes，sir，pure silk and hand-made.
B：How much it is？
B：I'm afraid it doesn't fit me very well. Have you got any other ones？
A：How about this one？ It's ten yuan.
B：The price is all right， but it's a bit showy， isn't it？
A：Oh，I don't think so，sir. I think it becomes you.
B：Then I'll take it.
A：Thank you， sir. Will you wait a moment please？ I'll have it wrapped.
