Para fazer um pedido, usa-se o verbo no imperativo, ou ento, de maneira mais polida, emprega-se na forma

interrogativa um dos trs verbos seguintes:


Would
Could
Can

you help me please?

Voc me ajudaria, por favor?


Voc poderia me ajudar, por favor?
Voc pode me ajudar, por favor?

= Please help me.

A resposta, se positiva, :

Quando negativa :

certainly.
I cant.
Yes, naturaly
No,
Of course.
Im sorry.
Como vemos, would no tem traduo prpria. Ele simplesmente faz o condicional do verbo que o segue, aqui no
sentido de pedido.
1. Faa pedidos de maneira mais polida, usando o Would you...? no lugar do imperativo. Siga o exemplo:

a)
b)
c)
d)

Would you help me, please?________________________________

Please wait for me.


Close the window.
Please turn off the lights.

Would (ou a contrao d) usado como condicional de like, para indicar desejo, de forma moderada ou polida.
Compare:
I would like to help you. (Eu gostaria de ajudar voc.)
I want to help you. (Eu quero ajudar voc.)
Na forma interrogativa, would you like...? uma maneira polida de oferecer algo.
Ex.: Would you like a drink?
Would you like to have a drink?

Voc gostaria de uma bebida?
