Message New Rely Forward Delete Print Move to 1 Hi David, What a great idea! I really like Ms. Steen a lot. She helped me to improve my English so much. I’m sad to see her go, and this party
is the best way to say “Thank you and
goodbye.” I can help to buy some of the food
and drinks. I can help to bring MS. Steen
to the party. I already have a great idea
about how to do that.

My family is taking a trip to Wuhan at the
end of this month to visit my aunt and uncle. However, I’d still be glad to help out with any
of the party preparations, like planning the
games. Let me know if you need my help.
2 Dear classmates, As I’m sure you know by now, our favorite
teacher, Ms. Steen, is leaving soon to go back
to the US. We’re very sad that she’s leaving because she is a fun teacher. To show how much we’re going to miss her, let’s have a surprise party for her next Friday the 28th! Can you come to the party? If so, can you help with any of these things? Please tell me by this Friday.
1) Buy food and drinks.
2) Think of games to play.
3) Prepare things we need for the games (glue,
paper, pen,…). 4) Bring Ms. Steen to the play without telling so that she can be surprised. I look forward to hearing from you all. David

Would you like to join us?” “Are you free next Friday night?” “Are you doing anything Friday night?” “Would you be interested in coming to our house that night?” “How do you like to join our party Friday night?”
Someone asks: “Would you like to...” You: “I’d love to, thank you.” “That’s very kind of you, thanks.” “It sounds great, thank you.” “That will be lovely, thank you.” Someone asks: “Do you like to go to the movie theater with us this afternoon?” You: “That’s great, thank you.” “What a good idea, thank you.”
“That’s very kind of you, but actually I’m planning to see my grandma next Saturday.” “I’m really sorry, but I have to do something else on next weekend.” “I really don’t think I can make it—I am supposed to be at airport picking up my friend next Sunday morning.” Remember:
当你拒绝他人的邀请时, 要特别注意礼貌。通常你 要给个理由, 说明为什么无法接受邀请, 或者道歉。

10. Please reply in writing to this invitation by
Friday, December 20th.
1）replying in writing 表示“ 以书面的形式 进行回复”。其中reply相当于 answer，但要 比后者更加书面化且正式许多。此处介词in表 示方式，相当于汉语“ 用……方式（形式）” 之意。
2）reply作动词时，不直接跟宾语，须由介词to 引入宾语内容，构成 reply to … 的结构。如： Did you reply to these letter? 你回复这些来信了吗？ 3）在此句中，介词by 译为“ 截止……; …..之 前到……为止”。介词before 也有“……之前 ”之意，但区别于before不包含其后的时间， 而 by 则包括。
e.g. You should get your homework ready by Friday. Remember: Friday is the last day! 你应当最迟于周五前把作业做好。记住： 周五是最后一天。 can you come and meet me before Friday? I’ll be away early Friday morning. 你能在周五前来见我一面吗？我周五一 大清早就走了。
