You can draw attention to something that you are going to say (usually something that is frustrating you or something you have previously said) by using the word "Look,..."
Look (exclamation): used to call attention to what one is going to say
We often use 'Look...' when we need to stress something important, or when you are frustrated with someone's behavior. As such, try to remember to only use 'Look..." when you are a little angry or frustrated.
Examples ☆ Look, I just don't want to date you. ☆ Look, this idea is stupid. ☆ Look, it just does not make sense. ☆ Look, I have told you this 100 times already! ☆ Look, you need to stop making these silly mistakes. ☆ Look, what you are saying does not make any sense.
In a previous lesson, you learned how to use “Would you mind…?” to ask for favors or make requests. In this lesson, you are going to use “Would (someone) mind if…?” as a way of asking permission in a polite way, or as a way of getting someone’s opinion on something.
Examples(Soliciting an opinion) ☆ Do you think the teacher would mind if my assignment was late? ☆ Would your mom be upset if we came home late? ☆ Would the boss mind if I didn’t come to the meeting? ☆ Would your friend mind if I came to the party? ☆ Would you be offended if I didn’t eat the cake you baked for me; I’m on a diet.
Examples(Indirect way of asking for permission) ☆ Would you mind if I came to the party? ☆ Would you mind if I left work early? ☆ Would you mind if I borrowed your car?
