    Daily phrases in English

    Hi!

    I just started to wonder how I am supposed to answer if I go shopping and a shop assistant (is that how you call the staff in stores?) asks me if she can help me? Is it correct to say 'No thank you, I am just looking' or are there better possibilities? I wouldn't like to sound impolite! Thank you for your help!

    "No thank you, I'm just looking" is fine.
