Going shopping in Spanish is a huge goal.
This video tutorial is exactly what you need to go through some useful phrases!
When you go in a shop, the staff can ask:
¿Qué desea? –> What do you want?
¿Qué busca? –> What are you looking for?
We can reply or start the conversation using the following sentences:
Busco –> I look for
Necesito –> I need
Quiero –> I want
For example you can say:
Quiero un reloy –> I want a watch
Necesito una camiseta –> I need a t-shirt
Busco un vestido –> I look for a dress
If we want to ask for a size we should say:
Necesito una talla pequeña/mediana/grande –> I need a size small/medium/large
Also, the shop assistant can ask you what size you need:
Perdone, ¿qué talla necesita? –> Excuse me, what size do you need?
Or they could also say:
¿Qué talla busca? –> What size are you looking for?
You could also ask for the colour:
¿Tiene este vestido en otro color? –> Do you have this dress in another colour?
Or you could say:
¿Tiene otros colores? –> Do you have other colours?
If we want to ask for the price we have three different ways to do that:
¿Cuánto cuesta? –> How much is it?
¿Cuánto vale? –> How much is it?
¿Cuánto es? –> How much is it?
They will reply in different ways:
Cuesta 50 euros –> It is 50 euros
Vale 50 euros –> It is 50 euros
Es 50 euros –> It is 50 euros
If you are in a market you can also ask for a discount:
¿Tiene descuento? –> Do you have any discount?
¿Hay alguna rebaja? –> Is there any discount?
If you want to say that something is very expensive you can say:
Es muy caro –> It’s really expensive
If you want to say that something is very cheap you can say:
Es muy barato –> It’s really cheap
If you are happy with the price you can say:
Está bien –> It’s ok
If you are happy with the item you can say:
Lo quiero –> I want it
Me lo llevo –> I’ll take it
They will ask you how you want to pay:
¿Quiere pagar con efectivo o tarjeta? –> Do you want to pay with cash or card?
Now you are ready to go shopping!
