Let me (do something)

如果想礼貌些,但仍然表现得十分亲密友好,那么就可以说“let me…”

Let me sit you up so you’ll be more comfortable.

让我帮你坐起来,那样你会更舒服。

– That’s a good question. Let me find out for you.

这是个好问题。我来帮解答。

2

Do you want me to

/Do you want sth? 

如果你对于对方接受帮助的意愿十分没有把握,那么直接问吧。

Do you want me to sing it for you?

你要我为你而唱吗?

在口语中,还可以省掉开头的“do”,

– You want to meet up after class and go over it?

你想不想下课后碰一下,我帮你重新过一遍?

3

Would you like me to

/Would you like sth 

和上一种表达类似,但更为正式些,可以对顾客使用,也可以是比较疏远的人。

Would you like me to throw them away?

想我帮你扔了吗?

4

I can (do something) 

I can…也是一种礼貌的提供帮助的表达。比如商场里的店员对顾客说,

I think I can fix this for you.

我想我可以帮你修好。

5

I’d be happy to

这也是正式用法,常用于商务场合和专业人士间。

– I’d be happy schedule a time to meet and talk with you about it.

我很乐意安排时间和你会面探讨这个问题。

 

6

May I offer you(something)?

这是非常正式的提供帮助的表达方式,听起来有些浮夸。

May I offer you some refreshment?

我给你来点吃的怎样?
