I'm learning modal verbs, would!
I'll try for understanding how can 'would' be used for polite requests by approaching with a methodology.
The methodology is that we think 'would' is the past version of 'will' and 'would' is used for expressing an unlikely or imaginary situation.
so, I made some examples.
Would you mind telling me the time (if it were possible?)<--skipped. In the above sentence, 'if it were vs if it is: which is correct?'
Would you get me a sandwich (if it is possible?)
What would you do (if you read people's thought's)<-- it's context.
How about you?
Is this approach correct?
