    Would you like to go to the bazaar?

    Hatman! Biah berim!

    Sure! Let's go!

    Chi mikhi be khari?

    What do you want to buy?

    Aval berim forushgah e farsh.

    First let's go to the carpet shop.
  • Checkhat ghashang hastan, vali gerun!

    How beautiful they are, but so expensive!

    Berim yadagari bekharim, inja sanaye dasti doran.

    Let's go get some souvenirs, here's a handicraft store.
  • Hala berim forushgah mahi va sabzijot bekharim kay berim khaneh ghazo dorosbekonim.

    I'm hungry!
