Asking for, Granting and Denying Permission or Favors

By September 21, 2013

Follow me on:

Asking for permission or asking for a favor requires polite forms, as well as tact. Learn how to ask for permission with varying degrees of politeness, as well as granting or refusing permission, or learn how to ask for a favor. Each sheet includes multiple forms, example role plays to practice with a partner, and an exercise to practice on your own or in class.

This week’s article on “How to ask for permission” etc. is a godsend. I’ve always avoid these topics in class whenever I can. The dialogs after the article are wonderful. Such great ideas; you make it look so simple.
I’ll surely use them next time up…Thank you…keep up the good work!
