  • [Singing] "Got to buy some dinner tonight." Hi. James from EngVid. So what are we doing?


  • We're going to talk about shopping today. As you can see, I have to go shopping because


  • our budget -- we usually have a big magazine, and I'm down to this poor little piece of

    我們的預算 - 我們通常有一個大的雜誌, 我只剩到這個可憐的小片

  • paper. But my dinner is on, so why don't we go to the board.


  • Now, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, something we have to do wherever you go. You


  • do it in your own country. We do it here. What I'm going to teach you is the vocabulary


  • for basic shopping. So there -- we have two other videos on engVid that talk about shopping


  • and specific things. You can go and watch those as well. I recommend you do. But for


  • now, just so you can go into a store anywhere that they speak English and get what you want,

    現在,只是為了讓你可以進入商店 任何地方,他們說英語 並得到你想要的東西。

  • when you need it, the way you want it, we're going to do this lesson right now.


  • So the first thing you want to do is -- well, you want to know if it's on sale. "Sale" means


  • "cheaper price". So that's what we mean, "is it on sale?" The first thing you can ask,


  • like, "Do you have anything on sale?" For instance: Club Savings. All these foods are


  • on sale. Regular price 20, now 17. I'm saving money. So "sale" really means -- s-a for "save".


  • You're saving money because you're going to pay less than the actual, original price.


  • Which leads me to the next word: "price" and "cost". For some of you guys you're like,


  • "We know these things." But it's actually using it properly or effectively. You can


  • say, "How much does it cost?" which is different than "price". They're similar -- not same.


  • "Cost" means "what do I have to give you". "Price" is what -- what the actual money is.


  • So you can say, "How much does this cost me?" Maybe two hours. And I'm using it differently


  • than price. So similar -- not same. So what is the "price"; what is the "cost". And they


  • will tell you how much money you have to give them, okay? Cool.

    會告訴你有多少錢 你必須給他們,好嗎?好的

  • That comes with the word "pay". When you have a price or cost and you give them money, you


  • must "pay". I work in an English school, and people have to "pay". That means, "Give the


  • money." But you can give not just money, but different things in different forms. So one


  • of the things we can do is, we can use our credit cards. Everybody -- not everyone. A

    我們可以做的事情是, 我們可以使用我們的信用卡。每個人 -- -- 不是每個人。A

  • lot of people have it if you're over 18 -- piece of plastic that you give, and they say, "This

    很多人都有它,如果你18歲以上 - 一塊塑膠,你給,他們說,這

  • is worth this much money, and you can use your card to pay with it." Okay? Visa, American


  • Express, MasterCard -- these are credit cards. Debit. In North America, we're in love with


  • our debit cards. It's a card that you get from your bank that has direct access to your


  • account. So not like a credit card where the bank is lending you some money or letting


  • you take some money for now, and you pay it back. That's the "credit card". Debit is right


  • in your account, so if you have $500, they literally -- oh, sorry, "literally" means

    在你的帳戶,所以如果你有500美元,他們從字面上 - 哦,對不起,從字面上意思是

  • "really", "in reality", or "actually" -- take the money out of your account. So you can


  • use either debit or credit to pay. And my favourite, favourite of everyone's


  • -- I don't have any: cash. Cash. Money. The old fashion way of doing things, right? Give

    -- 我沒有現金。現金。錢。老式的做事方式,對吧?給...

  • them the money -- transaction done. "Transaction" is when you do business. You "transact" because


  • one thing goes to another. You get product; they get money. It's a "transaction", okay?


  • Taxes. Every country has them. In some countries, like England -- where they speak the Queen's


  • English -- taxes are included. So if it says $15, it's $15. But folks, I live in Canada.


  • And what you see is not what you get. $15 becomes $16.50. $100 becomes $115. $1,000

    而你所看到的並不是你所得到的。15元變成16. 5元100元變成了115元,1000元

  • is -- $1,150. That's right. Our taxes are not included. So when you come to America

    是... 1,150美元。這是正確的。我們的稅收不包括在內。所以,當你來到美國

  • or Canada, be careful because you might actually have to pay taxes. You see this, "Incl.":


  • "taxes included". It will be taxes -- it's good. It means price -- what you pay. Most


  • of the times, you won't see anything, and it means "add more money". "Taxes" are what


  • the government gets -- okay. Understand this. It's what the government gets for you buying

    政府得到... 好吧理解這一點。這是政府得到什麼 你買了

  • something because they want their money, too. Anyway.


  • So this is the first thing. You come in, and if you can see, Mr. E is 50% off. He's on


  • sale. Because I hate the damn worm, I'm trying to get rid of him. So you want him? He's yours.


  • Anyone of you come to EngVid, leave a comment, "I'll buy the worm." We'll send it to you.


  • Anyway. I told you. So that's it. That's the first thing. When you go in, you want to check


  • if it's on sale, what's the price or the cost, how can you pay, and if there are taxes included,


  • or can you get away with taxes, right? You might say, "Hey, look, if I pay cash, can


  • I pay -- can you do something with the taxes?" Shh! I didn't tell you. More than English,

    我付--你能用稅金做點什麼嗎? Shh!我沒有告訴你。比英語多。

  • people. I teach you more than English. Next, before you actually pay for it -- right?

    人。我教你的不止是英語。接下來,在你真正付出之前 -- 對嗎?

  • We found what the price costs. We're going to look at the product or the thing we want,


  • okay? That's why we have a box with a bow. It's what I want -- maybe a camera, maybe

    好嗎?這就是為什麼我們有一個帶蝴蝶結的盒子。這是我想要的... 也許是一臺相機 也許是...

  • a watch, a new shirt: That's what's in the box. So here's what we want to look at -- things

    一塊手錶,一件新襯衫。這就是盒子裡的東西。所以我們要看的是... ...東西

  • about it. For instance: What style? Because when you buy something, maybe you want it


  • this style. Or you want a polo shirt, you know, something with a nice collar around


  • it. So you can say, "style" or "kind" or "type", right? "What type of shirt do you like?" or


  • "What kind of jeans do you like?" "I like blue jeans." "I like black jeans." "I like


  • ballet pants." What "type" or what "kind" or what "style". These three words can be


  • used together, right? "He likes hip hop style." "He likes classic kind of music", or "type".


  • The next: "size". I'm not a big guy. I know I appear bigger on TV, but in reality, I'm


  • tiny, much like the worm. Anyway. Size. But you can get big. You can get small. You can


  • get medium size. So in North America, you'll see this: "S", "M", and "L". That's "small",


  • "medium", "large" -- they're the basic sizes. Then there is "extra large" and "extra small",


  • but basically, you'll find those three everywhere. And finally, colour. You'll notice I have


  • "colour" and "color". Why? Because in the United States -- and I know we have a lot


  • of people there. Hi, people in the United States. "Color" is spelled without a "u",


  • but in Canada and Britain, they spell it with a "u": "colour". So what colour? Maybe you


  • want -- I'm kind of monochromatic, which means "only one colour". I've got black watch, black


  • shirt, black necklace, black pen, okay. Maybe you want red or black -- different colours,

    襯衫,黑項鍊,黑筆,好的。也許你想要紅色或黑色 -- 不同的顏色。

  • okay? So these are the things you can change. Other


  • things -- because these are parts you can change on the product -- features: not exactly


  • the same. A "feature" is what something has. Cars have features. A car might have automatic

    的一樣。A feature是指某物具有的功能。汽車有功能。一輛汽車可能有自動

  • steering, or it might be manual or -- it's automatic and manual. Sorry. There you go.

    轉向,或它可能是手動或 - 它是自動和手動。對不起。對不起。 你去那裡。

  • It might be manual or automatic. These are features. It's not these things here. What


  • they do is what it has in the car -- four doors, two doors. It has four-wheel drive.

    他們做的是它有什麼在車上 -- 四門,兩門。它有四輪驅動。

  • Benefits. After someone told you the features about something, if you're buying a camera,


  • it goes -- it has automatic shutter, it's got sound reduction, what have you. You might

    它去 - 它有自動快門,它有聲音減少,你有什麼。你可能

  • go, "So what? What does that do for me?" And then go, "Okay, here is the benefit." This


  • is what -- because "bene" means "good". "This is why it's good for you." "Automatic noise

    是什麼 -- 因為bene意味著好。這就是為什麼它對你有好處。

  • reduction" means you can get rid of all the outside noise. "Oh, very good. Very interesting,


  • yes?" Okay, and that's why we do that. So you can say to somebody, "What are the


  • features on this product? What are the benefits to me? Does it come in this size, this style,


  • or this type of thing? And what size is it?" See? You get information so you can get exactly


  • what you want. And if you're very smart -- remember we talked

    你想要什麼。如果你很聰明 -- 記得我們說過

  • about "sale"? We can talk about "discount". You can say, "If I buy five of these, can


  • I get a discount?" It's not the same as "sale". This is different. It's because I'm doing


  • something, I want to get another benefit. I'm giving you more money: Give me more money.


  • I'm going to save you money, son. I told you. Okay.


  • And if there is something wrong -- maybe there is a little scratch. A "scratch" is a little

    如果有什麼不對勁的地方--也許是有一點劃痕。A scratch是一個小小的

  • cut on the product. You can go, "I want a discount. Look, it's not perfect. It's not


  • 100 percent -- change the price for me." See? If you don't get a sale, go for the discount.


  • We have talked about the -- Mr. E on sale. We have talked about the product, how to change


  • it to make it ours -- modify it for ourselves. We're individuals, after all. Now, finally,

    使它成為我們的 -- 為我們自己修改它。我們畢竟是個人。現在,終於。

  • please come again. If you've ever watched The Simpsons -- Apu, I love you, man. I really

    請再來一次如果你看過《辛普森一家》 -- 阿普,我愛你,夥計。我真的...

  • do. "Come again" is his favourite thing. You're leaving. Don't leave without these things.


  • That's why it's basic shopping, but this is like, guerilla shopping: You want to get everything


  • you need. What do I mean by that? Well, first things first, if you buy something expensive


  • -- like, this marker, it doesn't matter. But if I buy a new laptop, I want a warranty.


  • A "warranty" is basically the company saying, "If anything is wrong when you leave the store,


  • we will fix it. We will make it okay. No problem." Some people go, "I don't care." And then they


  • go home, they open it up. It doesn't work. And the company goes, "No warranty? Your problem;


  • not ours." So you should say -- if it's an expensive thing, like a camera, or a new cell

    而不是我們的。所以你應該說 -- 如果它是一個昂貴的東西,像一個相機,或一個新的手機。

  • phone, or, you know, iPod, "What's the warranty?" Because they will tell you, "For one year"


  • -- or even a car. They'll say, "One year, six months: We will protect you. We promise


  • to make sure everything is okay, no problem for you." So you go, "Does this have a warranty?"


  • Next: "Warranty" is for the product, but every store has what we call a "return policy".


  • Some stores will say, "Hey, the product has a warranty, but we won't give you your money


  • back. You have to talk to the person who made the product." Yeah. Right. You're like, "But


  • I'm protected." For the product. By the company. But the store that sells it might just say,


  • "Our return policy is 'no money back'. No money. Our money, not yours." So you want


  • to check, "Do I get my money back if there is a problem?" or "Do I have to get a receipt?"


  • Not a receipt, a -- they have this little piece of paper. They go, "credit note". Which

    不是一張收據,一個 - 他們有這個小紙片。他們去,信用票據。這

  • means, "No money for you, but you can buy anything in the store." It's up to you. Maybe


  • it's okay, if you know you're going to use it again. If not, don't go for credit note.


  • But if you want to get a good return policy and a warranty, the one thing you must leave


  • with, you must never, ever forget, and this is the most important part of the lesson:


  • Keep your receipt. No receipt? No return policy, no warranty, and all these other things are


  • no good. So I'm going to wrap this up because now you


  • should be going, "time to go shopping", okay? If you're in my country, do so... or in any


  • country that speaks English, okay? So very quickly, ask for a sale -- if there is a sale

    說英語的國家,好嗎?所以,很快,要求銷售 - 如果有一個銷售。

  • on the product. Check out the price or the cost. You can ask. They'll tell you. And I


  • said "quickly", so listen and focus. "How can I pay?" "Cash, debit, or credit?" It's


  • the modern world. You never know. "Are the taxes included or not included?" "Do I have


  • to pay extra money for this?" "Is it 15 or 20?" "My package -- can I make it small, big,


  • large?" "What are the benefits?" "What are the features?" And finally, "Give me my damn


  • receipt." So I've got to go. Mr. E, see you later. Once


  • again, I want you to come to -- where? Favourite website", "Eng" as in "English,


  • "vid" as in "video". Where you'll see me and Mr. E -- sorry. Come again, please. Come again.


  • Bye.
