20 2a Where do you need to make polite
requests? Think of some possible situations. Discuss them with your partner.

21 2b Read the article and match each paragraph
with its main idea. Use more words to help you sound more polite. It is important to know how to make requests politely. Good English speakers need to know how to speak politely. The choice of language depends on the situation and the relationship between the speakers. Paragraph 1 Paragraph 2 Paragraph 3 Paragraph 4

22 Underline the topic sentence for each paragraph.
Could You Please ...? When you visit a foreign country, it is important to know how to ask for help politely. For example, you may ask“ Where are the restrooms?” or “Could you please tell me where the restrooms are?” These are similar requests for directions. Both are correct English, but the first one sounds less polite.

23 That is because it is a very direct question
That is because it is a very direct question. It is not enough to just ask a question correctly. We also need to learn how to be polite when we ask for help. Good speakers change the way they speak in different situations. The expressions they use might depend on whom they are speaking to or how well they know each other. It is all right to ask direct questions to your classmates. Because you know them well. However, If you say to

24 your teacher, “When is the school trip. ”, this might sound impolite
your teacher, “When is the school trip?”, this might sound impolite. But if you say, “Excuse me, Mr. West. Do you know when the school trip is?”, this will sound much more polite. Usually polite questions are longer. They include expressions such as “Could you please ...?” or “May I ask ...?” It sounds more polite to say, “Peter, could you please tell me your address?” than “Peter, tell me your

25 address.” Sometimes we even need to spend time leading in to a request. For example, we might first say to a stranger, “Excuse me, I wonder if you can help me” or “I’m sorry to trouble you, but ...” before asking for help. It might seem more difficult to speak politely than directly. However, it is important to learn how to use the right language in different situations. This will help you communicate better with other people.

27 Language Points 1. inexpensive 不昂贵的,便宜的 inexpensive形容词,意为“不昂贵的”,其同义

28 拓展: 英语中常见的否定前缀: ① dis-表示“不;非;相反”,如: like喜欢 — dislike 不喜欢;
agree 同意—disagree 不同意。 ② in-(im-,ir-)表示“不;非”,如: expensive 昂贵的— inexpensive便宜的; polite礼貌的— impolite不礼貌的; regular有规律的— irregular无规律的。 ③un-表示“不,非”,如: able有能力的 — unable无能力的; like像—unlike不像; crowded拥挤的 — uncrowded不拥挤的;
