Transcript

Julia: Hi, Sammy.
Sammy: Well, Julia. Are you ... erm
Julia: Am I ...? Am I what?
Sammy: Are you ... OK?
Julia: Yes, Sammy. I'm OK.
Sammy: Yes, but ... I mean ... Are you doing anything tomorrow?
Julia: Why?
Sammy: Sorry, I know, you're probably busy tomorrow. Meeting someone already.
Julia: Yes. Maybe.
Sammy: Oh, I see. Sorry.
Julia: Yes, maybe I'm meeting someone. If he asks me.
Sammy: Great! Julia, would you like to go somewhere with me tomorrow?
Julia: Oh, I don't know, Sammy ... Yes, of course! I'd love to!
Sammy: Great!
Julia: What shall we do?
Sammy: I don't know. What about running?
Julia: Why? I hate running.
Sammy: OK. Well, what do you like doing? Oh, but not ...
Julia and Sammy: Cycling!
Sammy: I don't like cycling.
Julia: Do you like music? We could go to the opera.
Sammy: My dad loves opera. He listens to it all the time ...
Julia: Great, so ...
Sammy: But I can't stand it.
Julia: OK. OK. OK, so no opera. Great.
Sammy: What about sports? There's a football match in the afternoon.
Julia: I don't like football. It's noisy. And boring. Hey, why don't we go to the museum?
Sammy: Museum?
Julia: Oh. I see. 'Museums are boring'.
Sammy: What about the cinema?
Julia: Oh, so don't you want to talk to me?
Sammy: Of course I do!
Julia: But we can't talk in the cinema, Sammy.
Sammy: Oh, of course, you're right. Look, Julia, you don't want to go to the cinema, and you're not interested in watching football ...
Julia: Well, what about you? You don't understand opera. When you go to a museum, you go to sleep. You just want to ... run.
Sammy: Julia!
Julia: Look, Sammy, I'm sorry. I think we're too different. We just don't like the same things.
Sammy: No, I'm sure there's something we both like.

It is generally hard for me to ask someone out for first time. Probably I will say "Would you like to have dinner with me tonight?" ...

Would you like have an appointment with me tomorrow? It's sound very compromising... Do you want to go with me anywhere tomorrow? I see a dry and withered flower that needs water and heat... Hahahaha

I could say: What do you do tomorrow please?

Hi dariusclinton

If I understand your intention correctly, you should say: 'What are you doing tomorrow?' We often use the present continuous to talk about future plans.

All the best
