Hello, dear student! Today we will look at some phrases, words and sentences connected with clothes. This topic will be especially useful, if you come to Russia in summer. Winter begins here in autumn: September and October can be very cold, so people start wearing warm clothes. How to buy or ask something on this topic?

The first phrase that you need is:

- Скажите, пожалуйста, где я могу купить/приобрести теплые вещи и обувь? [Skazhite, pazhalujsta, gde ya magu kupit'/priabristi tyoplye veshi ili obuv'?] - Could you please tell me where I can buy clothes and shoes to warm up?

Какой у вас размер одежды/ обуви? [Kakoj u vas razmer adezhdy/ obuvi?] What is your (clothes/shoes) size?
