Hi, teacher and everyone else. What's another way to say: Can I have a couple hours off?. I want to ask this to my boss.
Wouldn't that be the same as what I posted?
that's ok, i think "can i get a couple hours off" would suffice.
"Couple of hours off" also has the advantage of being acceptable in BrE and AusE as well.
It would not suffice if I were your boss. I'd expect a more polite request and a reason for asking.
'Do you think you could manage without me for a couple of hours this afternoon, please? It's my grandmother's funeral.'
Does my sentence sound OK?
May I have a couple of hours off?
David, though I'm a not a teacher nor a native speaker I want to tell you do not forget to capitalise "I" and forget to write shorterning.
We try to help learners speak in correct English.
Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
