    022: Phrases for being Polite in American English

    When we were in Italy recently, we often struggled with knowing the polite way to phrase a request or ask for something.  We could get the point across, but we lacked nuance with the language.  Today we discuss phrases you can use to be polite in American English, like, “would you be able to tell me if you have ___”, or “we’re ready for the check, when you get the chance.”

We talk about leaving your whole self behind to try to embody the new language, not just 'learn an accent'. We also talk about how your personality might be affecting how well you're absorbing English as you study among native speakers.

Hạnh Bo ,

Your podcast is so helpful

I have lived in America for 25 years and married an American for 13 years. Many days I thought I was asking my husband in a polite way or requested him to do certain things, but it turned out it was not, which made him mad and I didn’t know the reason why. Until I ran across your podcast. thank you so much for explaining and show the non-English-speaking person the American way of speaking.
