    will, can, could

    Hi native speakers,

    Any difference among three?

    Will you type this letter for me?
    Can you type this letter for me?
    Could you type this letter for me?

    For language purposes, they reflect different levels of politeness. 'will' and 'can' are very close while the use of 'could' represents a more polite request.
