Nǐ hǎo! Welcome to Benny’s Experience. Today, we will learn how to invite people out. As before, let’s learn some new words first:

kòng

free time

shíjiān

时间

time

jīntiān wǎnshang

今天晚上

tonight

qǐng

invite

zǎofàn

早饭

breakfast

wǔfàn

午饭

lunch

wǎnfàn

晚饭

dinner

yuēhuì

约会

date


Now first you need to know whether the person you are going to invite is available:

FOR EXAMPLE:

Nǐ jīntiān wǎnshang yǒukòng ma?

Are you free tonight?

你今天晚上有空吗?

Zhège xīngqī liù nǐ yǒu shíjiān ma?

Do you have time this Saturday?

这个星期六你有时间吗?


Remembering the above sentence pattern, you can simply change the day or time to your preference. Now, the next step is to invite them if they are free:

Wǒ xiǎng qǐng nǐ chī wǎnfàn.

I would like to invite you to dinner.

我想请你吃晚饭。


Unfortunately, sometimes they are not free for your invitation. They may tell you they’ve already made another appointment:

Wǒ jīntiān yǒu gè yuēhuì.

I have a date today.

我今天有个约会。


No problem. Using what we learned today, to ask them again next time. But are you free tonight? Nǐ jīntiān wǎnshang yǒukòng ma?

 

It's easy as ABC!
