Learning : Shop and Save - Using your Credit Card & asking for a Discount
Share |

Abstract : One for the girls! But then again, who doesn’t like to shop now and then! Always remember that unless you are in a major mall or a brand named store, don’t be shy to try and ask for a discount! The worst they can say is “No!” In China, it’s quite normal to bargain, so don’t be embarrassed and give it a try! In China, most major department stores accepts foreign Credit Cards, so you don't need to carry too much cash with you when you go for those expensive treats!

Today our experience is about shopping. Do you like shopping? Hold on! I want you to answer my question in Mandarin! Here is the new word:

gòuwù

I hope you still remember how to say “I like”, so it’s easy to say your answer now:


FOR EXAMPLE:

Wǒ xǐhuān gòuwù!

I like shopping!

我喜欢购物!

Wǒ bù xǐhuān gòuwù!

I do not like shopping!

我不喜欢购物!


Wǒ xǐ huan gòu wù! but what if I want to get more discounts or if I want to pay by credit card?


Definitely we need learn these words!
