Yesterday we found out how to make informal invitations. This week, we look at slightly more polite invitations. For example, how would you ask a friend to your house for a dinner party?
|Checking someone is not busy|
|Are you free on Friday?|
Are you busy on Friday?
What are you doing on Friday?
|Would you like...?|
|Would you like||...a chocolate bar?|
|...to come to my house for dinner?|
|I wondered / was wondering|
|I wondered||...if you'd like to come to my house for dinner|
|I was wondering|
|I would very much like it if you could come along|
Shall I bring a bottle?
