Asking a Favor 

 

 

 

# 1

 

  Sook : Excuse me, but I wonder if you can give me a hand.
  Kyu   : Sure.  What is it?
  Sook : I don't know how to use this machine.  Could you help me?
  Kyu   : Sure.  All you have to do is to push this button and then the machine does the rest.
  Sook : Like this?
  Kyu   : That's it.
  Sook : There are so many things I have to learn on the job.
  Kyu   : Of course, but don't worry! You'll be able to do a good job.
  Sook : I can't thank you enough. I really appreciate it.
  Kyu   : Don't mention it.

  Kyu   : I wonder if we're allowed to take pictures here?
  Sook : I'm afraid not.  Taking pictures is not allowed in this museum.
  Kyu   : Why not?  All I want is to have some pictures of the beautiful paintings.
  Sook : If that's what you want, why don't you buy yourself a printed collection of paintings?
  Kyu   : I see.

  Sook : May I ask you a favor, Kyu?
  Kyu   : Sure.  What is it?
  Sook : My parents are visiting me from New York tomorrow.  
            Could you  possibly give me a ride to the airport?
  Kyu   : No problem. What time do you have to get to the airport?
  Sook : By 7:00.
  Kyu   : Do you know how long it will take from your house to the airport?
  Sook : At least an hour.  How about leaving at 5:30?  I don't want to be late.
  Kyu   : Well, then, I'll pick you up at your place at 5:30.
  Sook : Sounds perfect. Thank you, Peter. I don't know how to thank you.
  Kyu   : My pleasure. What are friends for?

  1. Excuse me, but I wonder if you can give me a hand.
    처음본 사람에게 손을 달라고 할 수 있다니.. 역시 영어권은 개방된 문화인가봐요.. ^^*
