    Re: How do I response " Can you help me?"

    It depends on what they need help with.

    Of course.
    I'd be happy to.
    It would be my pleasure.
    Sure. What do you need help with?
    I can try!


    I'm sorry -- I can't right now.
    I'm sorry -- I have a bad back. (Let's say that want you to help move a heavy item.)
    I could later, but not now. Would that work?
    This is a bad time. Is there another time we could do it?
    I'm sorry -- I don't know anything about that.
    I'm sorry -- I'm new here too and just don't know.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
