Many of us communicate exclusively through telephone calls, emails and text messages nowadays - all electronic methods of instant communication. Sometimes though, you still need to fallback on the age-old mailed letter. Sometimes you want to send a gift to someone, a written note, or a greeting. Do you know what to say in English when you go to a post office?

Hi, can I have some stamps, please?
Sure. How many do you need?
Give me one sheet, please.
Okay, a sheet has 20 stamps. You want the 46 cent stamps, right?
Yep. The kind we put on letters.
Alright, here are your stamps. That’ll be $9 dollars and 20 cents.


Hello. How do I send a registered letter?
You just need to hand it over to me and fill a form.
Okay. Can I have the form, please?
Sure! Do you want a return receipt?
Yes, in fact I do.
Okay. That’ll be $18.


Hello. What can I do for you?
I have this package here and I wanna send it to Davenport, Iowa.
No problems. Can you place the pack on the weighing scale over there?
Sure.
Okay, it’s about half a pound. It’ll cost you $20.
Okay. That’s fine.


H! How can I help you?
I sent a registered letter 4 days ago. It hasn’t been delivered yet.
Four days?
Yeah.
Well, it might be delivered today. I think you should wait a couple of days.
But it should’ve reached by now.
I'm sure it will be delivered today. Why don’t you check back tomorrow?
Is there any place I can do this online?
Yeah, just go to our website and fill in the details. It’ll give you the shipping status.
Thanks, I’ll check it online instead of coming over.
