You find a nice looking clothes shop and enter it. There you start looking at the different varieties of clothes available. Just then the store employee walks up to you.

Norwegian English
Ansatt: Hei, trenger du hjelp?.
Employee: Hi, do you need help?
Du: Nei takk, jeg bare kikker
You: No thanks, I am just looking around.

After a while, you find a dress that you like. You go to the employee and inquire about it.

Norwegian English
Du: Jeg liker denne kjolen.
You: I like this dress.
Du: Hvor mye koster den?
You: How much does it cost?
Ansatt: Den koster 250 kroner.
Employee: It costs 250 krones.
Ansatt: Hvilken størrelse bruker du?
Employee: Which size do you use?
Du: 40.
You: 40.
Ansatt: Ja, da passer denne.
Employee: Yes, this is OK.
Ansatt: Prøverommet er der borte.
Employee: The trial room is there.

And here is a video that will help you increase your vocabulary with the names of different types of clothes.
