A: Can I exchange this shirt, please?

A: Um, okay.

2.
A: I'd like to exchange these shoes, please.

B: Oh, are they the wrong size?

A: No, I just bought them, and I noticed that the heels are coming off. Look. ..

B: I see what you mean. Do you have your receipt?

A: Let me see. Oh, it looks like I forgot it.
Does it matter?
B: Yes. Could you bring us your receipt?

3.
A: Excuse me, I bought this briefcase here a few months ago.
Look. Here's my receipt.
B: Yes?

A: The problem is, I can't get the lock to work.

No problem. It comes with a two-year guarantee, so we'll repair it for you. But could you leave the briefcase with us for a few days?

I'm sorry. We are completely sold out of that style. I can order one for you. Or do you want to exchange it for a different watch?
A: Well, I really like this style.

B: Tell you what. Call me here tomorrow.
By then, I'll know when I can get you a new one.
A: Okay. Thanks. I'll call you tomorrow.

5.

Now they're much too short.

Could you just fill out this form for me, please?

We'll repair it for you at no charge. But I do need one thing. Could you show me the guarantee that came with the camera?

Listening 3

Task 1

Screenshot (58)

People are talking about shopping. Listen and circle the correct information about each person.

1.
I went to a summer sale at the department store the other day.
There were hundreds of people there. People were lined up in front of the main door before it opened. As soon as the doors opened, everyone rushed in. There were some great bargains there, but it was impossible to find what I wanted because of the crowds. I really wanted to buy a few things, but after a while I got fed up and left without buying anything. Big crowds drive me crazy.
Next time, I won't go shopping during a big sale.

2.
I bought lots of cheap clothes when I was on vacation last summer.
Things were about half the price of the same things here. The clothes looked well-made, so I spent a lot of money. But I've had problems with almost everything I bought. Some shrank as soon as I washed them. And the colors have faded on the rest. Next time, I'll save my money and wait for the sales at home.
3.
I needed a new camera last month, so I bought one from a store in the mall.
I paid $248 for it, and it's a really good camera. It takes beautiful pictures. A few days ago, though, I found exactly the same camera online for only S 195. I was really annoyed, but I guess there's nothing much I can do about it. Next time, I will spend more time comparing prices before I buy something.
4.
Some friends and I were on vacation in China last summer.
I went shopping one day and got some really fabulous things. I got nice running shoes and tennis clothes. I thought the prices were reasonable and I hate bargaining, so I just paid the price they asked. The next day, one of my friends went back to the same store and decided to bargain. She got things for much cheaper prices than I paid. Next time I go traveling, I'll be sure to bargain when I buy something.

1.

a. She enjoyed going to the store.

b. There were good bargains.(correct)

c. She bought many things.
