Jeck is inviting you to celebrate with his family the baptismal of his first born child in a parish in Batangas. Edser is inviting you to his birthday party in his apartment in Quezon City. Unfortunately, these events fall on the same date and will both start at 10:00 o’clock in the morning. Obviously, you cannot accept both invitations. You are sure to meet both of them tomorrow and will have to give your response. What will you tell each of them? How would you politely respond to their invitations?

Click on the following websites and carefully study them. http://www.eslgold.com/speaking/ss_invitin g.html (a website about useful and polite expressions when extending invitations in formal and informal setting) http://www.eslgold.com/speaking/accepting _refusing.html (a website about useful and polite expressions when accepting and refusing invitations) http://2ndnature-online- eikaiwa.com/Expressions/Module- 3/Unit_3.1.htm (a website about useful expressions when accepting, extending and refusing invitations in both formal and informal setting) Now, form a group with three members and together, try filling up the table on the next page reminders on the things one must do in accepting, extending and refusing invitations based on what you have read. Feel free to go back to the websites if you need to. Be ready to discuss your answers with the class afterwards.

Your friends invite you to another friend’s party, and you accept the invitation. When you arrive at the party, you see everybody smoking pot (marijuana). A friend offers you a “joint”, but you refuse the offer because you know it is bad to smoke, and worse, smoke marijuana. You boss urges you to play badminton with him. You would like to play with him but you are not good at tennis. Try to persuade him to play some other sport that you like. Your classmate wants you to spend a holiday with her at the province. You like her a lot but you have already planned to do something at that time. Your teacher invites you to his party next week. He gave you a very low grade in your last composition which you feel you did not deserve.
