The Usage of Polite Language E-mail this message to a friend
I want to investigate proper usage of polite language.
I think there are several polite expressions in English like will, can, would, could, etc.
- How would you say when you want to borrow some money from others?
- Could you tell me the differences of the way you ask between your parents,superiors,friends,seniors and juniors?
