Learn English with Mr. Duncan - Lesson 4 (Response to 'Please'/'Thank You')
Hi everybody, this is Misterduncan in England. How are you today? Are you OK? I hope so! Are you happy? I hope so! In my last lesson I talked about saying "please" and "thank you". Today we will look at the different ways to replying to these sentences. Making your response.
When a person asks you a question, you will normally give a reply. A sentence with the word "please" in it, normally needs a response. The reply can be either… yes, no, or maybe. They could also be much longer sentences, including reason for the reply or an added condition.
Of course you can just reply with a simple… "Yes." "No." "Maybe." But if you do say "no", then the other person will probably ask… "Why not?" Saying "no" to someone can be a very difficult thing to do.
Saying "please" and "thank you" are very simple actions, and by using them, you are showing that you are a polite person who is willing to show respect to other people, which… is quite a nice thing really.
Well another lesson has… flown by. Please come back again real soon for another one. Before I finish today, I would like to say a special "hallo", to one of my online English students. Diego, and also a big "hallo" to his family watching in Canacatti, which is in Sicily. That is definitely it from me, until next time, this is Misterduncan in England, saying… thank you for watching me, teaching you… and of course… ta-ta for now.
