5 new ways to ask for help before the holidays

Worried about finishing in time for the summer holidays and tired of asking for help? Why not try a different approach or at least re-phrase what you are looking for. Asking politely and subtly is rarely a bad idea and can even help you to build bridges. Here are five new ways that you can ask for help in English. 

1. A hand 
Example: We would really appreciate it if you could lend a hand today. 

2. Assistance 
Example: A little assistance would be great. 

3. Support
Example: Any chance of getting a bit of support? 

4. Hands on deck 
Example: A few more hands on deck would be good to get things moving. 

5. Reinforcement 
Example: We could really do with some reinforcement on this project.
