A man and a woman go to see a film together, they talk about something before and after the film. At first they exchange the views of the newly bought clothes and bag.
xīn yī fu: new clothes, here it means new jacket.
chuān : to wear
nǐ chuān xīn yī fu la? : You are wearing a new jacket, aren´t you?
nǐ kàn zěn me yàng : What do you think?
yán sè : the color
shēn : dark
yán sè shēn le diǎn : the color is a bit too dark.
shì yàng : the style
shí máo : in fashion
nǐ cāi duō shǎo qián? : Guess how much it is?
So you can learn the way to exchange the views. The sentence structure:
nǐ kàn ... zěn me yàng?
You can put the discussed object in the mittle of the sentence, which means " What do you think about ....?"
Sometimes in the conversation you can also say simply
"nǐ kàn zěn me yàng?", as long as there is no mistake possible.
