Asking for Information

08 9月 2014, Posted by Iwamoto Karen in 英会話

One of the advantages of being a part of the GITA program is the opportunity to interact with
Filipino Web Developers in English. I`ve always believed in the saying that “practice makes
perfect.” As students interact with our Filipino staff, they increase their ability to
communicate using the target language.

CONVERSATION TIP:

It is not polite to start a conversation with a direct question.
The phrases below can help you ask for information without sounding rude.
– Can you tell me…
– Could you tell me…
– I would like to know…

Examples:
1. Can you tell me + = Can you tell me what the time is?

2. Could you tell me + = Could you tell me where the bank is?

3. I would like to know + = I would like to know what time the movie starts.
