Exercise: App for Taxi Drivers – [Closing a Deal]

Another day, another English exercise

Let’s check some grammar

You can use “so” as part of your questions

  • So you work for Microsoft?
  • So you are a university student?
  • So you are a developer?
  • So you work for the government?

These are some examples of first conditional sentences with “can”

  • If we buy three computers, can we get a discount?
  • If we use your services, can you provide 24/7 support?
  • If we make a deal, can you extend a warranty?
  • If we sign a contract, can we start tomorrow?
