Thank you for the lesson. I learned there're a lot of different expressions. ;)
Have you got a minute? I need a favour.
Would you be able to work on it this afternoon?
Is there any chance you could work late tonight?
Could you come in early tomorrow?
Can you get in for 5 a.m.?

Nice lesson.

Well.....
Maybe every day. ;)

I don't remember when I did, though I remember when someone did. It was yesterday, I was at cafe, and terminal for pay is broken, and I had't cash. I call to my friend, and ask a favour. I said "Hi Vova, can you help me, I have problem, plz send money to that number, I will send you back in 1 minutes."

I did a favour to my friend and it was about leaning English because he was a beginner student at English

I often do a favour, for example when I help my father with his work, or when I cut the grass of my grandma

Yes, last time I had a favor with my friends. I ask my friends to take participate the competition held by me. They also took participate the competition held by me.

In fact, I do favors very often, I don't even notice it. For example, helping classmates with homework. Perhaps a lot of people think this is something bad or wrong on my part, and maybe they are right. But I like helping people. Actually, I don’t give them my notebook and I don’t say: "Take and copy it!" I try to explain it to them in an accessible way, although many people condemn it for it.

The last time I did a favour for my friend, was in January 2021. As we both wanted to purchase a new model television, we could save on delivery charges if we ordered them together.
I did him a favour by ordering them from Amazon account to save us both money.

I'd forgotten about that. lol
