Homework: shopping and bargain

I was doing my homework today when i realized that it would be a good idea to share it here.

Right now I’m learning some key words about shopping and bargain. SO I had to create a dialogue where I try to buy something and then I have to talk about sizes, collors and try to bargain a better price. Well, my vocabulary is not much yet.. and I’m still a beginner (please *always* remember that..) and so far, I have only used pinyin. We (teacher and I) have decided to keep focusing on pronounciation and know how chinese structure works before using the characters.  So the whole dialogue is written like that.

Oh, of course, if you know chinese and wants to correct me, please feel free!

Oh², I can only type 2 kinds of tones on my computer (` and´) so since i can’t type them all, I decided to only write the number of the tone by the side of the word (ex: shen2 = shén)

Ok, shall we?



A: Ni3 hao3! Ni3 mai3 shen4 me?

B: Ni3 hao3. Wo3 ke3 yi3 shi4 shi yi1shuang1 xie2 ma?

A: Ke3 yi3, ni3 chuan1 duo1 da4 hao3 de?
