How to make a request

When making a request, we often change our language depending on who we are asking.

  1. If we are requesting a friend to do something, we might say, “Can you take this to the library, please?”
  2. If we are requesting a coworker to do something, we might say,“Would you mind taking this to the Library?” Or “Would you please take this to the library?”
  3. If we are requesting someone a superior to do something, we might say,  “I am sorry to bother you, but is there any chance you could take this to the library?”
