Understanding expressions 1

understanding expressions : How are they? /I like them. Please give me this pair.

Please follow the instructions with the educator.

After trying something on in a shop, the clerk will ask us ‘어떠세요?’. If we like the clothes and we want to buy them we should answer ‘좋아요. 이걸로 주세요.’

However, there’s the possibility that you don’t like the clothes. you just need to tell how they fit you. Also, in this expression ‘좀’ is a shorten form of ‘조금’ (which means ‘little bit’ in English) so you can use both.

Example 1)

  • A : 손님, 어떠세요?

  • B : 좋아요. 이걸로 주세요.

Example 2)

  • A : 손님, 어떠세요?

  • B : 바지가 조금(좀) 작아요. / 바지가 조금(좀) 커요.
