Inviting friends

Olivia invites her friend Bethany to play basketball and to go to a barbeque with her family…

Olivia: Hi Bethany! I’m going to play basketball with my cousin and some of her friends tomorrow - Would you like to join us?

Bethany: Sounds good! What time?

Olivia: We’re meeting at the leisure centre at two o’clock.

Bethany: I’d love to, but I can’t. I have to look after my little sister until my parents finish work at three o’clock.

Olivia: That’s a shame! Are you busy in the evening?

Bethany: No, I have no plans tomorrow evening.

Olivia: Well, we’re having a barbecue at our house. Do you fancy joining us?

Bethany: I’d love to, thanks! I’ll definitely be there. What food can I bring?

Olivia: Mm… my mum has everything sorted but you could bring something nice to drink if you like.

Bethany: No problem, I’ll bring some nice drinks. See you tomorrow evening!
