Asking someone to do something
When we ask somebody to do something for us we can use the following forms:
Could you help me please?
Can you lend me five euros, please?
A more polite form has the following construction:
|Would you mind||-ing form of verb|
|Would you mind||opening the window, please?|
|Would you mind||passing me the salt?|
|Would you mind||not smoking?|
