    How do you say "please" in the following sentence - is it "s'il le plait"? - "Could you kindly ask him to please send me a reply as soon as possible?"

    Not "s'il le plait", but I would say something like "s'il veut bien", "s'il peut", etc.

    "s'il te plait / s'il vous plait" are idiomatic phrases that are only used in this form.

    "Pourrais-tu lui demander de bien vouloir me répondre au plus vite ?"
