Comments & Explanation:    
 
  1. Диалоги, представленные в этом уроке, характерны для ситуаций, когда вам нужна помощь продавца.
  2. Casual or dressy.  Когда речь идет об одежде, casual означает одежду для повседневной носки в отличие от dressy, что означает парадную, выходную одежду. Например, casual pants - это повседневные брюки, тогда как dress pants - пара парадных брюк, брюк для выхода. Кстати, привычное многим слово trousers (брюки) в обиходе практически не используется.
