Hey, are you free on Saturday? Do you want to do something?

I'm busy on Saturday, but how about Sunday?

Sure! Sunday works for me

What are you thinking?

How about a drive out to the beach? I've got the car this weekend because Mike is away.

Sounds good! What time?

I can pick you up from your place about 9 if you like

I'm going to the gym first thing in the morning

Shall we meet a bit later, say 10?

Perfect! Do you fancy a picnic? I can go shopping while you're at the gym

Great! Even better! See you tomorrow!

Tips

  1. Use these phrases to make suggestions.
  • How about + noun/gerund …? 
  • Do you fancy + noun/gerund …?
  • Shall we + infinitive without to …?
  • Do you want + infinitive …?
  1. If you say no to something, make another suggestion instead.
  2. You don't need to put full stops (.) at the end of every sentence.

I'm meeting an old friend who didn't see each other for three year on Sunday. I'm so so excited and can't wait to see her.

I don't have any plan in this weekend because I can't go anywhere cause of covid-19. After finishing the covid pandemic, I have many plans to travel with my friends.

For this weekend I have some plans around my house. On Saturday need to clean my garden, to water the flowers and to make tidy the yard because on Sunday we are expecting some guests. We arranged a meeting with my relatives at my house because I haven’t seen them for six months since the corona started to spread. We are going to have a barbeque party with a lot of food and drinks. My father will be in charge of the grill and my mother will prepare her delicious desserts. I think it will be quality time with my family. I'm planning to organize some outdoor activities and other games, so children won't get bored.

This weekend, I'm going to my friend's house that far from my house bout 60 km. I will drive to get there. We haven't seen each other for 6 months since coronavirus appeared. So I am so excited about this meet. We will make a barbecue in the garden, chat, and drink. It will be fun!
