Lesson Transcript

Can I Take Your Picture? in the UK
In the last lesson, we looked at how to ask people to take photographs for us, maybe with an iconic monument in the background. But what if you want to take a photograph of an interesting person you see in the UK? Well, in this lesson we’ll find out!
If you want to ask permission, you can say: “Can I take your picture, please?”
Once again we start with the helping verb ‘can’, followed by the request, ‘I take your picture’, and finally ‘please’.
Some people may refuse, but many others will gladly pose for you.
While visiting museums, churches, castles, or other attractions, it’s always a good idea to ask permission to take photographs. To do this, you can say: “Can I take a picture here?” Once again you start with ‘can’, and then ‘I take’ for the action, followed by what you want, ‘a picture’, with the location, ‘here’ at the end. Altogether we have: “Can I take a picture here?”
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 I take your picture?
- Can I take a picture here?


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