Hi All,

I'm glad that I've joined this intersting forum. Here are my first questions Emotion: wink

Is it correct to say:

- I would appreciate it If (any one) of you can help me washing the dishes.

- Do we say I got suck in the traffic. or I got Stucked?

- Can we say (You are most welcome) when some one thanks us for something. or (you are most welcomed)?

Thanx in advance for your help

Hi A. Elbatal

Welcome to English Forums.Emotion: big smile

I'd recommend the following:

- I would appreciate it if someone could help me wash the dishes. / Could one of you help me with the dishes?

- I got stuck in traffic. (Use 'the' only if everyone already knows exactly where the traffic jam was. 'Stucked' is not a word.)

- "You're welcome." is standard.
"You are most/very welcome." is more emphatic.
Thank you very much. I would appreciate it very much if you could help me tell you that I'm so grateful and that I wish if we could be friends:)
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
what I meant by the previous post is if I want to tell some one who has hepled me that Iam looking forward for her or his friendship, How can I express that ?. (Assume I met u in a shopping mall and you were very nice to me and I was interested in making a friendship with you.. How can I express that in a pleasant way ?
Hi,

In my culture, we don't just say directly to someone, 'Would you like to be my friend?' We do things morei ndirectly. We are just nice to the person and hope that friendship will develop slowly.

If you meet me in the mall as you describe, you might chat for a while, and then say 'Would you like to go and get some coffee?'

Best wishes, Clive
Thanx Clive.. Appreciate it very much Emotion: smile

As in the bolded sentence, can I also say 'Would you like to go and have some coffee?'

Thanks. Emotion: smile

Hi,

Yes. 'Get' is more informal.

'Would you like to go and get some coffee?'

What If I would if want to accept this invitation and what would I say If I don't want to accept it in anice and ofcourse not very formal way?
