About the sentence

to pick sb/sth up

This extremely common phrasal verb means to collect somebody or something.


Is there any chance you could...is a useful sentence starter for making requests. Remember that in English, being indirect is a good way to sound polite. This phrase is one way of making a request more indirect, and therefore more polite. e.g. Is there any chance you could turn the volume down? I'm trying to get some sleep.
