It's 12:58 in New York, 5:59 in London and 10:01 in Moscow, which means that it's time to go window shopping in Paris! With all of the delectable delights in the Chanel-inspired windows at Printemps, it's easy to understand why the French say that they're going to do a bit of lèche-vitrine, or "window licking". If you're ready to move on to the buying stage after seeing all of these goodies, here are a few useful French phrases to know:
How much does this cost? -- C'est combien s'il vous plaît?
I would like... (a pair of those sexy red boots!) -- Je voudrais... (une paire de ces bottes rouges sexy!).
Do you have...? -- Est-ce que vous avez...?
Do you take credit cards? -- Est-ce que vous acceptez les cartes de credits?
Expensive -- cher
Inexpensive -- pas cher
Have fun, enjoy the displays and click on any of the photos that you would like to enlarge.
