Lesson 4: Buying goods at shop/vegetable market

How much are the onions? (Pyaaz kitne ke diye?)
How much are the lemons?

प्याज कैसी दी? नीम्बू क्या हिसाब हैं
--

Five Rs a kilo! Ok. Give me two kg.
Or
I would like to have 5 kg onions and bagful of lemons
पांच रुपये किलो, ठीक है दो किलो दे दो
--

Buyer: Please give me five packs of bread
Shop owner: We carry only standard breads and not local ones
Buyer: No problem, I prefer standard companies
Shop owner: And shall I give you need cheese and milk
Buyer: Alright

ब्रेड के पैकेट दे दीजिए, सिर्फ स्टैंडर्ड ब्रेड है, कोई बात नहीं मैं वही पसंद करता हूँ, और दूध भी दीजिए, ठीक है
--

Buyer: Could you get me a bag of tea, 2 kg sugar and a dozen eggs?
Shopper: Sure, I will put all in this box with your other groceries

क्या तुम मुझे चाय, शकर और दर्जन भर अंडे दे सकते हो, बेशक मैं सब एक ही थैले में डाल दूँगा
