Content: Making Request and Commands.

Requests are usually expressed by using please.

e.g.    Please, lend me your pencil. 

Don’t be angry, please.

    It may also be expressed by will/can + infinitive with or without please.

        Will you pass the salt?

        Can you hold this for me , please?

        Can you hold this for me?


Using would/ could instead of will/can is more polite.

    Other requests are:

    Would you be kind enough to show me the way?

    I wonder if you could lend me your umbrella.

    Positive Commands

    Go home.

    Touch it.

    Shut the door.

    You are to wait here until I return.

    Will you shut up?


    Negative Commands

    Don’t go home.

    Don’t touch it.
