Student or Learner
A: Would you mind reading some of the words we've heard today?
B: Yes of course
And then B reads them.
I was taught that the answer to a such question should be : No, I wouldn't.
But this dialogue is from BBC Learning English so I'm confused.
Could someone explain this?
My natural response would be, "Not at all," but "(Yes,) of course," said with the appropriate intonation is quite common these days. It's a response to the message, a request, rather than to the words.
