How to construct offers.

An offer is when we ask someone if they would like to have something, or if they would like us to do something for them.

Offers should be positive constructed, so using the correct modal verb and sentence construction is important.

Will and should/shall are the best modal verbs for making offers.

We use will when we make an offer at the moment of speaking.

“Why don’t you come out for a meal? I’ll (I will) buy”

“It’s my birthday tomorrow”, “Is it? I will make you cake tonight”

“Give me my bike back, if you don’t I will call the police”

In English the idea of an offer made a the moment of speaking always uses future will, not present simple.

“I will give you my number” – Correct
“I give you my number” – Incorrect.

Shall/should are used to express an offer, a suggestion or ask for advice.
They are always used as questions.

Shall is formal, and should is informal.

“Shall I drive the boss to the airport?” – Formal
“Hey kids, should we go out for dinner tonight?” – Informal

Indirect Questions.

Indirect questions are formal and polite ways of asking questions.
In English we use indirect question when we are in professional and formal situations as well as when we are talking to people we don’t know well.

How to construct Indirect Questions.

Indirect questions have the same word order as positive statements, and there is no do/does/did.

 

Positive Statment:

Fermin lives in Madrid.

Indirect Question:

Do you know where Fermin lives?

NOT: Do you know where Fermin live?

 

Indirect questions use standard phrases.

Could you tell me…

Do you know…

Do you happen to know…

Have you any idea…

Do you remember…

Would you mind telling me…

If there is no question word, use ‘if’ or ‘whether’.

I don’t know if I will come to the meeting.

I wonder whether we will win the contract or not.

Examples:

Could you tell me where Sr. Ramon’s office is? Questions with is/are, the verb comes after the subject.

Do you know when the canteen opens? We don’t use do/does/did.

I was wondering why we opened an office in Paris? This is a statement disguised as a polite indirect question.

Do you know he has manged to get promoted so quickly? The auxiliary verb has comes after the subject.

Would it be possible for you to stay late to day to finish the report? In indirect questions, the word ‘would’ replaces the word ‘can’ in direct questions. Can you stay late to finish the report?

British v American English.

Most people think that the only difference between American and British English are nouns, such as the American English ‘trunk’ and the British English ‘boot’, or the American English ‘yard’ and the British English ‘garden’.
However nouns are not the only the differences between American and British English; the meaning of some words and phrases can cause a lot of confusion.
In fact many British people don’t understand what Americans really mean when they use words and phrases that have a clear dictionary but mean something else in everyday American English.
