    Re: English

    "Exclusive" means to keep something private and keep certain groups out. An exclusive party would only be open to those who are invited.

    That said, I think a clearer way to phrase your sentence would be, "You are invited to my exclusive party."

    In your original sentence, you are using "exclusively" with the verb "invited". This makes it sound like the person will be the only one there. That's not much of a party!

    I have merged your two threads. Please ask a question only once. Also, please give your threads titles with more information about your post than the word "English." For example, this thread could have been called "Exclusively."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
