hi everybody and welcome back to top words my name is
Alisha and today we're going to be talking about 10 ways to ask for help
help me help me ask for help let's go can you can you bubble blah so can you
give me that pen can you turn off the fan can you give me a sandwich for lunch
I forgot mine in this sentence can you send me your email address so very
simple requests you can use can't you blah blah blah with them could you give
me a hand with the next expression is could you give me a hand with blah blah
blah meaning I need you like I need physically I need your hands to help me
maybe or I need something I need you to help me with something could you give me
a hand with this computer could you give me a hand with this furniture it's you
can use it to talk about like moving something heavy or you can also use it
for like a task like could you give me a hand with this report I don't know this
information so you can use it for your physical tasks or for mental tasks too
could you give me a hand with something in this sentence could you give me a
hand moving this sofa can you show me how to the next expression is can you
show me how to can you show me how to bla bla bla this means please teach me
something so can you please show me how to use this computer can you show me how
to use this software can you show me how to book a ticket so these are all ways
to ask for help with how to do something this is a very useful expression I think
can you help me out with the next expression is can you help me out with
can you help me out with so before we talked about can you give
me a hand with this is very similar can you help me out with some tasks you can
use it for physical activities or mental activities here so can you help me out
with this project can you help me out with cleaning this house I don't know in
this sentence can you help me out with my homework I
need help the next expression is I need help
blah blah blah so you can use the expression I need help that's fine but
if you want to be specific which I recommend I need help bla bla bla I need
help with my homework I need help doing the dishes I need help
cleaning the yard I need help something something something very clear
very direct it's a little bit casual I suppose but yeah you can use this in
most situation where you need help this sentence I need help making dinner
tonight could you the next expression is could
you so the first expression we saw in this lesson was can you you can also use
could you Timmy could you sounds a little bit more formal than can you so
can you love wha is it's a good kind of neutral everyday way to ask for help
could you sounds just a little bit more polite a little bit more formal so could
you please send me that file could you please stop smoking here in this
expression could you send me the project files will you so the next expression is
will you so this is used kind of for light maybe you just thought of
something you just thought of something you need help with so it's probably a
small task or a small favor that you need so for example will you get some
milk at the store on your way home it's like something you just thought of for
the future so will you help me with my homework will you give me a moment of
your time it's something very small very quick so in this sentence will you let
me know when you're free how do I the next
expression is how do i how do i this is somewhat similar to the earlier
expression we talked about can you show me how to blah blah blah but this one is
how do I and how do I get to the beach from here how do I get to the station
how do I turn on this computer how do I make new friends how do I study English
all of these are ways to ask for help or ask for advice ask for directions
this is a very nice and easy to remember way to ask for help how do I something
help the next expression is just help so I've here sometimes students say
please help me or just help and I want to point out that these expressions are
usually used in emergency situations for example there's an accident or there's a
dangerous person near you or maybe you're injured or hurt some emergency so
please help me alone sounds to a native speaker maybe like a
serious situation or an emergency situation help is similar to so of
course if you're an emergency situation absolutely you should use the words help
and please help me or just help me as well - but be careful because they sound
very serious I don't recommend using them for like light casual everyday
situations where you need help instead please use one of the other expressions
we talked about in this lesson so help is great for emergencies but maybe only
for emergencies so yeah in a sentence maybe for example in the kitchen there's
that you have a small accident in the kitchen you can shout to your roommate
or your family member help me and they'll come running if something to
check and see if you're okay I need your help with
the next expression is I need your help with blah blah blah the expression I
need your help with sounds like you are required for this task I need you maybe
you have special knowledge or special experience with this thing or you are
better equipped like you can do a better job than I can with this task so I need
you for some reason so I need your help preparing this information I need your
help reaching that tall glass like that's
really what I like I'm short so if I need something up high I might say to a
tall person I need your help reaching that glass up there you can use this yes
someone is better at doing something than you are you can say I need your
help with blah blah blah in this sentence I need your help with
this project that's the end so those are ten words and 10 phrases really that you
can use to ask for help if you have any other ways you'd like to ask for help or
