It’s too expensive – Tài guì le
Qǐng wèn, … duōshao qián? (Excuse me, how much is …?)
Remember the fruits:
Now, let’s ask how much they are each:
Qǐng wèn, píngguŏ duōshao qián?
Qǐng wèn, xiāngjiāo duōshao qián?
Qǐng wèn, chéngzi duōshao qián?
If bananas cost 5, then:
Xiāngjiāo wǔ kuài.
If bananas are too expensive then say:
Tài guì le. (It’s too expensive.)
Piányi yīdiǎnr hǎo ma? (A little cheaper, OK?) -> you can also say this one is a little better than that one: Zhè ge hǎo yīdiǎn. (I prefer this one.) -> or I want this one its a little bit larger for clothing: Zhè jiàn dà yīdiǎnr.
Bù guì. (Its not that expensive.)
Tài (we mentioned before too/too much/over)
Yīdiǎnr (a little more)
