This phrase will help you take matters into your own hands! In this lesson we'll take a look at the word please, which will be very important when you need to ask for something.
British English Survival Phrases, Lesson 3 - Getting What You Want Using English. This phrase will help you to take matters into your own hands. In this lesson, we will take a look at the word "please", which will be very important when you need to ask for something.
SURVIVAL PHRASES
In English, please is said to be the magic word. It makes things sound politer, and children are taught to say please when they want to request something. Let's hear it again. Please.
The easiest way of using please is to point at something while saying it. But let's try and build this up a bit, shall we? Let's start with the expression, This please. See how it makes things sound much politer?
Slower, by syllable: this please
If we’re looking at the word this, it makes sense to look at the word that. The phrase that please can be used to point at objects not so close to you.
Slower by syllable: that please
Pointing at people is considered rude in general in the UK, but it's fine to point at objects.
It is also common to add the word one to this expression to make it sound more natural. So, you can say this one please or that one please.
Okay, to close out this lesson we’d like you to practice what you’ve just learned. I’ll provide you with the phrase, and you’re responsible for shouting it out loud. You have a few seconds before I give you the answer. So good luck!
- Please
- This, please
- That, please
- This one, please
- That one, please
