Invitation to a Party

Jane and Susan are talking about their plans for the weekend. Jane invites Susan to her fancy-dress party…

Jane: Hi Susan!

Susan: Hi Jane! I really like your outfit today!

Jane: Thank you. I have a question…What are your plans for this weekend?

Susan: Nothing much, I’ll probably be staying at home and watching Netflix most of the time.

Jane: You can’t stay in your house all weekend – that would be very boring! I’m having a fancy-dress party on Saturday. You should come!

Susan: Sounds fun! What is the theme of your fancy-dress party?

Jane: The theme is superheroes and villains. I’ve already bought my costume.

Susan: Great! I could dress up as Cat woman. Would you like me to bring anything?

Jane: You could bring some snacks. The party starts at 7 PM. You could come over at 6 and we could get dressed up for the party together.

Susan: OK, sounds great! I’ll see you at 6 on Saturday! I can’t wait for the party!
