How can you make a request politely in English?
Here are some ways:
- "Could you please...?"
- "Would you mind (doing)...?"
- "Would it be possible to...?"
"Would you mind speaking more slowly?"
"Would it be possible to change the day of my appointment?"
"Could you please close the window?"
Depending on whom you are speaking to, it can be very important to use phrases like these when making a request. Each one has a certain flavor and also depends on tone of voice. Learn about that more and practice in a lesson with me!
