Today’s Word: request

July 18, 2017 =========

☆  request  リクエスト


If you make a request, you politely or formally ask someone to do something. So, this is a good word to use when you are traveling. It’s always good to be polite, and make sure that you treat people with respect, because that usually guarantees they will treat you with respect in return. Here are some ways to use request:

At a hotel:
Can I make a request for a room with a sea view?

At the airport:
Can I make a request for an aisle seat?

At a restaurant:
I’d like to make a request for all or meals to come at the same time, please.

Of course, if you want to be even more polite, you can change “Can I” into “May I”, but both of them are OK.
