    Can you help me?

    Hi to all....
    At noon, I want to ask my friend whether she has had lunch.And I always feel confusing that the sentence "Have you had lunch?" is not appropriate.Is there any brief expression about this?

    Thx a lot.....

    Hi Kobe

    Would you like to have lunch with me tomorrow?

    Shall we have lunch on Friday?

    What about lunch on Friday?

    Here is the message I received from Ouisch when I asked a very similar question to yours

    "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.

    Reards,

    Reards,
    Hi,thank you truly.But you maybe misunderstood what I want to ask.
    Er.....For instance, in the e-mail when it is at noon ,I want to know whether my friend Tom has had lunch or not,what brief sentences can I use?
    regards.

    Maybe,you want to write as: "Did you had your lunch?Hope you had".(OR) "Had your lunch?Hope you did".

    Hope that helps.

    I'd say "Have you eaten?"

    Hi

    Did you have lunch ?

    and then , if the answer is "No", "Would you like to have lunch with me?"
