    Pickup request

    This is my practice for various topics

    Pickup request

    * Let me now give you a situation and ask you to act it out. Let's say you're going to need a ride from a friend to get to work tomorrow morning. Call a friend and leave a message on his voice mail. Tell him that you need a ride and then ask three questions to find out things you need to know about getting a ride from him tomorrow.

    Hello, this is Charlie. How’s it going?
    I have some urgent situation, so I need to get a ride from you
    Actually, my car is broken, so I left my car at a car service center.
    Please help me to get to work.
    First, I want to know where you can pick me up and what time I should get there.
    What time do you usually go to work?
    I'll fit in with your time to go to work.
    If you want a coffee to drink, please let me know your favorite coffee.
    This will be my payment for your free ride for me.
    =================================

    If something is wrong with the answer, please let me know.

    If something is wrong with the answer, I have made any mistakes, please let me know correct them.
    See above.

    The introduction says you should ask three questions. You have asked one. You need to turn some of the statements into questions.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It seems more like a conversation written for a pedagogical reason than anything natural.
