A: Mr. Lee, I was wondering if you and your wife had plans for next Friday night?
B: Yes, I think we might be free. What did you have in mind?
A: I've mailed a formal written invitation to your home inviting you to a dinner party at my home.
B: That sounds great. Is it casual?
A: Actually, we thought it would be fun to have a formal sit-down dinner for the holidays.
B: That sounds good. It will give my wife a chance to dress up.
A: Yes, we've invited four other couples, so it should be a good mix of people.
B: That sounds wonderful. Will there be anyone there that I know?
A: Oh yes, everyone we are inviting is from our company.
B: Great! I'll look forward to it. We'll make sure and check the mail for our invitation.

A: Mr. Lee, would you and your wife be free next Friday night?
B: I don't think we have any plans, but I would need to see what my wife has planned. Why?

B: It would be our pleasure to join you for dinner. What type of party is it?
A: We've always wanted to have a formal dinner party.
B: I think we would enjoy that, especially our wives!
A: Four other couples are coming, so I'm hoping for some interesting conversation.

A: Would you and your wife be available next Friday night, Mr. Lee?
B: I'll have to check with my wife, of course. Did you have something planned?
A: We are having a dinner party, and my wife sent you and your wife an invitation.
B: I think we would enjoy that. Is it a formal affair?
A: My wife insisted on having it be a formal dinner party this time.
B: That would be a change. Usually we just do barbeques and never get a chance to dress up.
A: We thought that inviting four other couples would make nice conversation.
B: I think we will enjoy being there. Will we know anyone?
A: We are only inviting people from work.
B: I am sure that a good time will be had by everyone. We will be looking for your invitation.
