Dear Mr Yang,

I knew that if you required a person to help you. You should use "would like" instead of " want" . For example, " I would like you to help me" is better than" I want you to help me" However, the boss could say " I want to see you" more than " I would like to see you".It's not to be an impolite manner because the boss is your superior. The above conclusion was on the basis of the educational program which thought by myself. The program was expressed by the following situation: The boss gave somebody a message. Then, that person passed on the message to you. After that you went to the boss room. The first question you asked to the boss was " Did you want to see me?" or "You wanted to see me ?".However, I thought it was not only impolite to your boss but you were impolite to yourself. I thought it should be to said, " Would you like to see me?".But It can be accceptable by the native speaker in the Western Countries and not to be regards as not polite. The program was produced by a famous English Teacher. He said it was no problem in this situation. So, is it acceptable to use "want" if that person is your superior and your elder? I am eager you to reply my question.Thank you very much.

Your English teacher is correct . " would you like to see me ?' is wrong . You can say to your boss , "would you like to come to my wedding ?" or " Would you like a cup of tea ? " or " would you like me to turn on your air-conditioner ?

Hi Mr Yeung!

I went to Australia during my holidays in Lunar New Year, we went to a restaurant and order steak, The waiter asked how much the steak to be cooked, I said 70% and he did not understand. My friend helped and said medium rare(sth like that).

I would like to ask how to tell what we prefer how the steak to be cooked? and English usage of order of food.

Also, could you introduce us some vocabs of western style food (like food for salad, cinnamon, cumin), coz I like cooking.

Best Regards,
Leanne

 

When it comes to steak or lamb , you say 'rare , medium , medium well , medium rare , well done .' You need not go to the exact percentage . Your last question requires a rather long answer . My RTHK programme is perhaps not the most suitable venue to do this .

Dear Sir,

As my mum has bought the books of autobiblography of Hillary and Clinton respectively. She wants to ask how can she read faster in order to finish the two books.

There is no way a reader could force herself or himself to read faster . Each person has her or his own speed . Also fast reading would cause the reader to miss a lot of the finer points or beauty of the language .

Dear Leung,

I hope Mr Leung could give me some guidances in the following question.

In this sentence "Updates can be made to this assignment at any time up until the due date.",what does "up" mean?Is it an adjective or an adverb?

I hear some people say "thanks" instead of "thank you".Why "s" is needed?

Thank you for your kind attention.

Yours sincerely,
FKY

 

'up ' here means ' all the way' . It is not necessary to have 'up' here at any time until ..... is good enough ' thanks ' here is a noun , meaning ' many thanks ' In ' thank you' the word ' thank ' is a verb
