(Mengungkapkan permintaan, memberi dan memberikan ijin)


Study the following dialogue.

Jane : Is it a new car John?

John : Yes, it is a brand new Peugeut 307. Is it all right if I park my car here?

Jane : I’m sorry that’s not allowed. It is too close to the intersection. The car on the right side can not see it.

John : Over there, I think. There, it will not disturb the traffic.

Jane : Yes, that’s fine. It is behind my house. What brings you here?

John : I remember you bought a Nikon camera long time ago.

Jane : Oh, my old camera. Yes, I did. Why?

John : Do you mind if I borrow that camera for a few days?

Jane : Sure, John, but are you kidding? You drive an expensive car but you don’t have a camera.

John : it is urgent. I don’t know where mine is. My friend from British Consulate called me last week. I have to take pictures of Queen Elizabeth at the Buckingham palace next week. Her photos will be exhibited in Time magazine next month.
