Learn how to get a great bargain in English in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:37 Explanations: 3:51 Fast dialog: 16:16 Sean: Just look at the quality of that. You won’t find a finer one anywhere. Patrice: It’s nice, but it’s more than I want to spend. Sean: Okay, just for you, I’ll knock off 10%. What do you say? Patrice: I think it’s still too pricey. I think I’ll pass. Sean: Wait! Don’t be so hasty. What you have there is a one-of-a-kind item. You don’t want to pass up something this special. Patrice: I’ll think about it… Sean: How about if I throw in a second one for the same price, a two-for-one offer? Patrice: I thought you said this was one-of-a-kind. Sean: Did I? I meant to say that there aren’t many out there like it. I just happen to have two. How about it? Patrice: I think I’ll shop around first. Sean: This offer is only good right now, so don’t walk away. Patrice: Like I said, I’ll think about it… Sean: All right. Name your price. Make me a reasonable offer and I’ll let you have it. Patrice: How about 30% off? Sean: That’s highway robbery! I’m just a street vendor trying to make a living here. Patrice: Take it or leave it. Sean: All right, you have a deal. You drive a hard bargain. You wouldn’t be looking for a job, would you?
