Inglês - Compreensão de texto shopping for a skirt

Hi everyone! Para você praticar sua compreensão de texto em inglês, o diálogo de hoje é sobre um homem que precisa comprar uma saia para a filha.

Aqui vai o diálogo:

(A) Can I help you, sir?
(B) Yes, I’m looking for the skirts. Where are they?

(A) They’re over there, next to the dresses.
(B) Oh, right. Would you help me pick something for my daughter? I’ve never bought a skirt before.
(A) Of course. Let’s find something for her.

(A) Here we are, sir. How about this one? It’s a denim skirt – really fashionable right now.
(B) Looks nice, but I think my daughter will want something a bit dressier.

(A) Oh, I see. What’s the occasion?
(B) She’s turning 18 next week and we’re throwing her a big party – so that’s what the skirt is for.

(A) Well, I have to congratulate you! Your daughter really trusts you. I don’t know many 18-year-olds who would allow their fathers to choose party outfits for them!
(B) Ha ha… That’s true. She gave me very specific instructions though.

(A) Right. So you’d like to see something a bit more elegant. Here, this satin skirt is gorgeous – we have it in black and navy.
(B) I think the black one is exactly what she’s looking for.

(A) What’s your daughter’s size?
(B) She’s a small. Do you take credit cards?

(A) Yes, we do, all of them. Here’s a black satin skirt, size small. And if for any reason it doesn’t fit, just tell your daughter she can return or exchange it within 30 days.
(B) Thank you for your help – I think she’ll be very happy.
