    I'm practicing various topics

    Dinner invitation

    * I'd like to give you a situation and ask you to act it out. A Friend has invited you to dinner tomorrow night in a restaurant that you have never been to. Call your friend and ask three or four questions about the restaurant.

    Hey, thanks for inviting me to the dinner.
    I want to know how many people will join the dinner.
    I want to know who will join the dinner.
    What food is the restaurant famous for?
    (After hearing the answer) you said itís seafood. So is it crab or lobster?
    I planning to bring my wine there because itís really tasty.
    But do we have to pay some corkage for the wine?
    Where is the restaurant? If it's far from my place, let me know a nearby building or landmark that I can easily notice.

    If something is wrong in the answer, please let me know.

    I want to know how many people will join the dinner be there/be coming.

    What food is the restaurant famous for? Grammatically correct but not very natural. We might ask "What food does the restaurant specialise in?"

    (After hearing the answer) You said it’s seafood. So Is it crab or lobster? That's an odd question. There are lots of different types of seafood. Why choose those two?

    I'm planning to bring my own wine there because it’s really tasty.

    But Do we have to pay some corkage? for the wine? It's more natural to ask "Is there a corkage fee?"

    Where is the restaurant?

    If it's far a long way from my place, let me know a nearby building or landmark that I can easily notice spot.

    If something is wrong in the answer I have made any errors, please let me know correct them.
    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
