Students often complain that the way people speak in the street isn’t the same as the way they learn to do in class. So in this post I just tried to think what words and expressions I’d use to invite someone out. In the most natural/informal way possible..
HOW TO INVITE SOMEONE OUT
Obviously you could go for the standard question ‘Would you like to go to the cinema tonight?’. Nothing wrong with it, but how about trying one of these alternatives which sound a bit more ‘informal’?
- FANCY+ING: do you fancy going to the cinema tonight?
- FANCY + NOUN: (do you) fancy a movie tonight?
- FEEL LIKE + ING: do you feel like going to the cinema tonight?
- FEEL LIKE+ NOUN: do you feel like a movie tonight?
- TO BE UP FOR + ING: are you up for going to the cinema tonight?
