Everyone is getting started on their holiday shopping.

Are you going shopping this weekend?

If you are, you’ll need a few useful phrases to make sure that you can communicate smoothly with the shop owners.

In this video I will give you three useful phrases for shopping  in English on Black Friday.


3 Useful Phrases for Shopping on Black Friday in the US:


  • “Can I try it on?”: To “try something on” means to put it on to see if it fits. You try things on in the fitting room or in the dressing room.


  • “Do you have size ___?”: If the sizes are different in your country then you’ll want to get a chart to translate your size into your US size.


  • “What’s your return policy?”: It’s important to know what will happen if you decide that you don’t want the item when you get home or if it doesn’t fit. Find out if you can return the item. Most places in the US do allow you to return an item for a refund or store credit.
