I watched this video and read your comment, So I have just learnt these new phrases:
1- there's £1.60 change.
2- "How much it that?" "that is..." sometimes is Ok.
3- Is that everything?

Good morning. I wonder why Gemma didn't ask "Have you got the cold ONE" instead of "have you got cold ONES" because she wants to buy a bottle of water not some bottles of water (she asked the shopkeeper "Do you have a bottle of water?") Thank you so much.

Hi Avatar. Good attention to detail! Yes, Gemma could have asked 'Have you got a cold one?' But it's actually fine (and very common) to ask 'Have you got cold ones?' too – it's clear that she only wants to buy one, not all of them. :)

I love to go shopping and buy anything which i need. I am always busy with my study, so that can't go shopping regularly.

I wonder one thing. That's about a question: "How much is that?" Gemma bought 3 things, so I think question is " How much are these?" Why does the video use " is that" for plural? Can you help me?
Thank you so much!

Hi lekimkhanh0109. Good question. Actually, this is the standard phrase to use, even if you are buying many things. In this case, 'that' means 'everything' (How much is that? = How much is everything?) and notice the shop assistant's reply also uses 'that' (That’s £3.40, please).
