Lesson Transcript

Can You Take My Picture in the UK?
While exploring the UK’s historic cities or scenic countryside and coastline, there are sure to be many times when you’ll want to take a photograph. And what about the times when you want to be in the photograph as well? In this lesson, we’ll learn a phrase that will be invaluable: “Can you take our picture, please?”
So let’s take a closer look at that phrase. ‘Can’ is a helping verb used in questions, ‘you’ is the person you’re asking for help, and ‘take our picture’ is the request. And don’t forget ‘please’ at the end.
“Can you take our picture, please?”
If you’re on your own, you can ask: “Can you take my picture, please?” In this situation, just replace ‘our’ with ‘my’.
Another way of making this request is by saying: “Would you mind taking our picture?” The first words, ‘would you mind’, form a polite question starter, the verb that follows, ‘taking’, is in the –ing form, and then we have ‘my’ or ‘our’, followed by the request word, ‘picture’.
“Would you mind taking our picture?”
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!
- Can you take our picture, please?
- Can you take my picture, please?
- Would you mind taking our picture?


Alright! That’s going to do it for this lesson. Bye!
