    for to

    He invite me to dinner.
    He invites me for dinner.

    I looked up the dictionary. It says invite...to

    Q1:In this case, can we use invite...for?
    Q2:Any difference between them?

    Thank you

    q2:any difference between them? this is good question!

    "for" suggests that he invites me to go to his house for dinner.
    "to" suggests that he invites me to go a restaurant for dinner.

    thank you
