How to reply when someone helps you

I want to know that how to reply if someone says Can I help you? Is it appropriate by saying Yes, please. I want to . or Yes, please. I would like.  Both those answers sound good, Graceren.  They make perfect sense and they're very polite.  Thank you so much, owlman5! It confused me for a long time.  In fact, Graceren, it's becoming increasingly unlikely that someone will ask you that question. It's what is called a closed question, because the only possible answers are "yes" or "no" (with a "please" or "thank you" thrown in for politeness' sake). If a sales person is approaching you, they're far more likely to avoid a direct "no" answer by asking the question "How can I help you?".

True, but you can avoid a no by saying:


  • I'm fine/all right, thanks.
  • I'm just browsing.
  • Can you give me a minute?
  • I'll let you know when I need help.
