How to make and respond to offers提供帮助和回应
English speakers make offers all the time in conversation. They say things like, "Can I...", "Shall I...", "Would you like me to...".
Using these phrases - and those to accept and reject offers - will make you sound more natural and help you to sound polite.
Making offers
"Can I help you?"
"Shall I open the window for you?"
"Would you like another coffee?"
"Would you like me to answer the phone?"
"I'll do the photocopying, if you like."
Shall, can and will are followed by the verb without to.
Shall is more formal than can.
Would you like... is followed either by a noun, or by the verb with to.
Responding to offers
These dialogues show you ways to accept or reject offers made to you.
"Can I help you?" "Yes please. I'd like to know what time the train leaves."
(In a shop) "Can I help you?" "No thanks, I'm just looking."
"Shall I open the window for you?" "Yes please. That would be very kind of you."
"Would you like another coffee?" "No thanks." Or, "No thank you."
"Would you like another coffee?" "Yes please, that would be lovely." Or, "Yes please, I'd love one."
"Would you like me to answer the phone?" "If you wouldn't mind." Or, "If you could." (Don't answer "Yes, I would", as this sounds like you expect someone to do it for you.)
"I'll do the photocopying, if you like." "It's OK, I can do it." Or, "Don't worry, I'll do it." Or, "Thank you, that would be great."
Make someone's day - make them an offer!
