Student or Learner
I'm just telling you in advance that I don't have the context. Sorry once again I've been given a set of sentences to translate so I'm going to be asking a lot of questions since there are certain doubts regarding the meaning. I'll start with the following one.
"She says that as I have my friends down here she doesn't see why she shouldn't have hers. She's asking Bob Delon". -"Is he the one?"
1)Can we use "ask" for "invite" without a preposition in this sentence?
I would use it with either "out" or "to" or any other preposition that would fit in the context.
2)For me she might have meant something like "I've been thinking a lot about him. I've called him so I'm seeing John tonight. Or she migh have been talking with him on the phone trying to fix a time " meaning a point in the future not present.??????
3)Regarding "as I have my friens down here." Does it mean that he asked his friends to come over? Or it just that they took up residence in another town and he made friends there?

Would it be similar to this "I'm getting a new job."? It would mean that I'm not working there but I've already been to the job interview and got the OK from the boss?
"to have friends down"=invite friends? Are they staying for a while or just came to the party?
