  • How about only informal invites for the BBQ…on previous slide we say it’s an informal invitation so let’s ski8p the formal greetings
  • Could we use ‘rain date’ instead of ‘in case of rain’…we used this idiom in Week 6 so it will be a nice revision
  • This could be a bit more visual, maybe with arrows or something…voiceover would be nice
  • Here you can do this slide vertically and have screenshots of those two resources

    13. 13. “What are your plans for the weekend?” This question may be an indirect invitation to a BBQ! Have you noticed that Canadians tend to be fairly indirect? Don't want to go? => Wanna go? => "I'm going to spend the day with friends. I hope you enjoy the day!” "Not much. What are you doing?" or "I'm not sure yet, I am still figuring it out. How about you?”
    14. 14. More Practice: accepting and declining invitations Watch this video, it stresses the different levels of formality. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfVua4GKGBc Here is an interactive quiz to correctly write invitations http://a4esl.org/q/h/vm/invitation.html
    15. 15. What should you bring to a barbecue? If you are invited to a barbecue it's a good idea to bring something to share. Here are some ideas: • Meat, fish or chicken to cook on the grill (check with the host) • Any kind of drink (wine, beer, soda) • Food that goes on the side with meat- potato salad, coleslaw, green salad • Dessert Source: http://www.englishandculture.com/blog/bid/95085/4-Typical-4th-of-July-Invitations-and-How-to-Respond-in-English
