How can I help you?

Are you busy now?

自然な表現

Are you free now?

Good work.
I have written another way to ask your question.
I am just finishing up my current task. I should be done in about 5 minutes. Do you need my help with something?

Yeah. After your current task, can you make me 15 duplicate sets, staple together each and put on my desk until 2 p.m.?
As you know, we have a meeting with Big Mall Company tomorrow. I will give their papers to them.
Here is the original set of the presentation documents.

As you know, we have a meeting with Big Mall Company tomorrow. I will give their papers to them.
Here is the original set of the presentation documents.

1. You need to add the pronoun "one" to refer to each individual set.
2. You need to add "them" to refer to the sets.
3. Use the preposition "by" when you are talking about a deadline.
Sure, I will get it done. The photocopier in my office is broken though, do you know where there is another one?

Oh really? Our office's photocopier is the best in my company. Do you ask the office admin to call the repair or what time do they come here? It's 10:30 a.m. So I think we don't have to be in a hurry. How dou you think?

Oh really? Our office's photocopier is the best in my company. Did you ask the office admin to call the repair company or what time will they come here? It's 10:30 a.m. So I think we don't have to hurry. What do you think?

1. The person did this in the past, so you need to use the past form.
2. You need to say repair company or repairman, because you cannot call a "repair".
3. Since the repairman will come in the future, you need to say "will" here.
4. When talking about a future situation, people usually just say they "don't have to hurry". Say "I'm in a hurry" when you are late for something in reality.
5. The correct question form to use here is "What". The answer to "How do you think?" is "With my brain".
I asked the repairman to come but he hasn't arrived yet. If he doesn't come soon then I will go the the internet cafe and copy it there.

I agree with you. And so, thank you for your consideration.

自然な表現
