2 Asking for, Giving, and Refusing Favours Rahina Larasati
3 LET’S BUILD OUR KNOWLEDGE! ASKING FOR, GIVING, AND REFUSING A FAVOURIf you are a manager, you probably ask people to do things all the time! But if you ask a friend to do something out of kindness or generosity, you are asking a favour. This is quite easy to do in English, but it's complicated slightly by the fact that we tend to be very polite when we're asking favours.

5 Asking a favourNote that we tend to be very polite when we are asking favours, using longer sentence structures:Can I aska favour?Could you do meCould you possibly do meCould I ask you to do meI was wondering if I could ask you to do meExaggerate the favourWe do this to make our friend feel important:Could you do mea really bigfavour?a massivea huge
6 Thanking your friendDon't forget to thank your friend for offering to do you a favour! Thank you so muchAdd emphasis to your words by showing how important the favour is:You're an absolute life-saver! OrYou've saved my lifeAfter you've thanked your friend, you can say that you owe him / her a favour...I really owe you (one)... or you can promise a reward...I'll buy you a drink sometime (to say thanks)......or you can promise to do the same favour for your friend:I'll return the favour sometime orI'll do the same for you one day... I promise!
