can anyone explaine ro me the different between
can - could
for example ..
can you help me
could you help me
what is the different ?

Hello muhammed7,

Both of those sentences are correct. The one with 'could' is a little more polite, but in informal situations 'can' is also just fine.

You can read a lot more about 'can' and 'could' on the following pages.

As you can see, we use both of these words a lot in English!

Please let us know if you have any more questions on any of those pages.

Best wishes,
LearnEnglish team

no, I have never leave a voice message in English. And I am afraid of a phone call as well cause I think I can be embarrassing if I don't understand...but this week I did my first phone call I felt comfortable and confident and I understood every thing....
