    Re: I would appreciate

    I would appreciate if you could help us.
    I would appreciate if you would help us.
    I would appreciate if you helped us.


    Usually you must appreciate something...for example:
    I would appreciate your help. "your help" becomes "it".

    I would appreciate "it", if you could help us.
    I would appreciate "it", if you would help us.
    I would appreciate "it", if you helped us.


    then all of these sentences make sense...
