      Hi, how’ve you been Rebecca? Just one question about the first part of your presentation.

      Is the following question on the board correct? “Could you please lend me $25?” I think it should be “Could I borrow $25 please?” because you are taking some money from someone.
      Please correct me if I am wrong.

      Interesting to know that psychology plays an important role when it comes to getting people do something for you.

      Thanks for this superb video lesson Rebecca.

      Profile photo of Regino Regino

        You could ask the question in either of the two ways – the one I mentioned in the lesson or the one you wrote about. Both are perfectly acceptable. Yes, psychology is at the heart of all our interactions with others, isn’t it? It’s just that sometimes we understand what’s at play and at other times we don’t know what’s going on! So, I found this research about using the word “because” to be quite interesting. Great to hear from you again, Regino. My best wishes to you.

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

Thank you, dear Rebecca!
For below test..
8. Which of these requests is the most formal?
I was wondering if I could take two days off next week.-I chose
I hope you don’t mind my asking, but would it be at all possible for me to take a couple of days off next week? – I did not choose, because of “but would it be at all possible for me” this part. I think it is informal and very direct, it is complicated..

Profile photo of fakhranda fakhranda

    Thanks for your feedback. I understand your point. Generally though, the longer the request, the more we distance ourselves from the situation, and so it is seen as more formal and less direct. Please check my resource for added help with this topic:

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

Thank you Rebecca, Your lesson is useful But it is hard to say because these expression longer I can’t remember however I try to remember.

Profile photo of Ukrit Ukrit

    The best thing to do in such cases is to start with the medium -sized request and learn just ONE expression / question, which you can use with everyone in the beginning. Then, slowly move to learn one expression in each category. Do not try to learn all the expressions at one time. Just choose one and learn that well. Thanks for your feedback and my best to you.

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

      Thank you for your recommended, if I have a chance to speak to other people I try to use short or medium request.

Thanx, Rebecca for the usefu lesson. To ask someone to do something we can also use a negative sentence + positive tag, the voice goes up at the end of the tag in sentences like: “You couldn’t do me a favor, could you?”. Sounds tricky ) Am I right?

thank you for the lesson.

I have a question.

You wrote:
“I hope you don’t mind MY asking, but could I please borrow $250?”

Would it be incorrect to say/write:
“I hope you don’t mind ME asking, but could I please borrow $250?”

If both are correct, what is the difference in meaning?

I consider this an important topic in our everyday life — asking for and giving (or lending).

I hope you don’t mind my asking but could you please continue being so helpful to us by teaching English with this care, attention and expertise? I’m really learning a lot with all of you and I intend to support again and again you all and this site, as I hope others do this according to the utility of this site to them and their possibilities.

It help me so much in speaking and writing . I don’t know it before. I always curious why someone could write a very easy thing so long. For example: borrow a pencil. I just say: May I borrow your pencil, please? I don’t realize that you could write in another way that show your polite .I wish I could have seen this video earlier because when I was in middle school 20 years before in China , I could have got higher score in test if I could write a long paragraph .
