Inviting People Out
We often invite people out. Here are two sample conversations.
I thought we could have lunch together
Vijay: Hi Amar, are you busy on Monday morning?
Amar: Yes, I’ve got to attend a meeting at my daughter’s school. And then I’ve to go to the airport to see off a friend.
Vijay: So you won’t be free until afternoon.
Amar: No. By the way, why did you ask?
Vijay: Nothing. I thought we could have lunch together.
Amar: I will be free after 3 o’clock. If you don’t mind we can meet for tea or dinner.
Vijay: That sounds good. Then, let’s meet at seven o’clock, shall we?
Amar: Sure. See you then.
Vijay: See you.
You are always busy!
Sona: Hi Maya, do you fancy going out tonight?
Maya: I’d like to, but I’ve got too much work to do.
Sona: Oh, come on. You’re always busy. Don’t you think you deserve a break every now and then?
Maya: What can I do? I’ve got tight deadlines. If I miss them, I’ll be fired.
Sona: That’s too bad. Anyway, we’re going to the theatre tonight. If you’d like to come, just give me a call and I’ll send the car to pick you up.
Maya: I don’t know if I can make it. Anyway, I’ll let you know.
