    What are the most appropriate formulae..?

    Hi teachers


    What are the most common -formal and informal- formulae one is supposed to use when inviting smb. out to lunch?

    e.g. Would you like to have lunch with me?


    Thank you in advance
    Regards

    "Would you like to have lunch with me?" is fine. You might want to preface it with a question, such as "Do you have any plans for lunch today?" If they reply "No" then you can extend the invitation. If they have a previous engagement, you can re-word your invitation to "Would you like to have lunch with me sometime this week?" or something similar.
