Clerk: May I help you, ma'am?
 
Anna: Yes, thank you. I'd like to buy a blouse.
 
Clerk: What colour are you looking for?
 
Anna: I need something to go with a brown skirt.
 
Clerk: Here's a pretty green one.
 
Anna: But it has long sleeves. I'd like a short-sleeved blouse with a high neck, if you have one.
 
Clerk: We have this one in yellow. What size do you take?
 
Anna: Thirty-four. Do you have that one in my size?
 
Clerk: Yes, here it is.
 
Anna: How much is it?
 
Clerk: It costs 8 pounds.
 
Anna: Oh, my. That's too expensive for me. Do you have anything like it for less?
 
Clerk: I'm afraid not.
 
Anna: Well, I think I'll look around some more. But I may come back for this one. Thank you.
 
Clerk: You are welcome.
 
 
 
讲解:
1. 这段对话发生在商店的服装部。当看到顾客时,店员一般都会主动地迎上去,热情地为顾客提供讲解和服务。他们首先会说,May I help you? 或者 What can I do for you? 对话中的 ma'am 是对女士的礼貌称呼。
 
2. blouse是宽松的上衣,似衬衫的上衣。I need something to go with a brown skirt. 我想买一件上衣配我的棕色裙子。go with,在这里是"与...搭配,与...相配"的意思。
 
3. 当我们向别人询问穿多大码的衣服或鞋子时,可以说 What size do you take? 当顾客得知那件上衣要8英镑时,觉得太贵了。于是她说 Do you have anything like it for less? 你们有没有像这种样式但便宜一点的?表示用多少钱买某样东西时用介词"for",比如,I bought my new car for $20,000.
 
4. 最后,这位顾客决定再到其它地方看看,look around some more是口语中简便的说法,我们可以理解为look around for some more blouses. 虽然顾客没有买商品,但店员仍应礼貌地对她的光临表示感谢,并说You are welcome.
