UNDERSTAND

SPEAKING

The school day is done. Saori and her coworker Masa are chatting in the teachers’ lounge.

Masa:

So, Saori, what do you do after work?

Saori:

I usually eat out with my best friend, Catherine. Then, we go to karaoke.

Masa:

Sounds fun! Where do you usually eat out?

Saori:

Well, we go to different restaurants. But our favorite place is the Pearl Café.

Masa:

The Pearl Café? That’s far from your home, right? How do you get home?

Saori:

I take the bus. Catherine usually takes a taxi.

Masa:

Wow, your best friend’s rich! (laughs) Anyway, do you want to go for a drink tonight?

Saori:

Sorry, maybe next time. I have plans tonight.

TRIVIA

When people invite you somewhere, it’s rude to just say no. Instead, you should use the phrases sorry, maybe next time or sorry, maybe another time.

 

   A: Do you want to see a movie?

X B: No.

 

    A: Do you want to see a movie? 

O B: Sorry, maybe next time.
