1. ## Stamp cost

Suppose there are three stamps. First one costs £1, second costs £2 and third costs £3.

I ask someone at stamp office. "Are you here to buy stamps" that person says yes. I ask again "there are different cost stamps" or "what should be the price of stamps". Person asks me why. I say " because there are different price stamps" or "there are different stamps that cost different". Please check.

I ask someone at stamp the Post Office, "Are you here to buy stamps?" and that person says "Yes".

I had to stop here - see below to see why.

I started to correct your post but it got so confusing I had to stop.

If you ask someone, "Are you here to buy stamps?", that suggests that you work at the Post Office. However, you would not then go on to ask them if the stamps cost different amounts. I don't know why either of you would ask "Why?" as any part of this dialogue.

My suggested dialogue is:

Post Office employee: Would you like to buy stamps?
Me: Yes.
Employee: Which stamps would you like?
Me: I don't know. How much do they cost?
Employee: £1, £2 or £3.
Me: OK. I would like one £1 stamp and one £3 stamp please.

I just wanted to check my sentences like " There are different cost stamps" and "There are different stamps that cost different". Are these correct?

4. ## Re: Stamp cost

No, they are both wrong.

5. ## Re: Stamp cost

Could you please tell what would be the correct formation?

6. ## Re: Stamp cost

Something like I'd like some stamps of different prices.

A request that has been made, and ignored, several times, tufguy.

If you don't either click 'Thank' or tell us that this facility is not working for you, I think you may find that people simply stop responding to your questions.
