This week’s Useful Phrase uses today’s word:
Can you give me step-by-step instructions, please?
This is an important phrase if you work in an English-speaking environment. If someone asks you to do something, and you’re not sure if you really understood what you need to do, then you could ask, “Could you repeat that, please?” However, that might actually not be very helpful, because if they just repeat the same thing, then you might not understand again.
So, instead, you could ask for me detail, by using this kind of word. “Sorry, but I need step-by-step instructions if you have time.” Or if you are giving the instructions, you can say, “Here are the step-by-step instructions.”
