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?

Please fill in this answer form.
