There are many different types of parties. No matter what type of party you are invited to, it’s always a good idea to bring a small gift.
The gift that you bring usually depends on the type of party it is. Read on to see how you can prepare to go to your next party.


1. Study - Read the dialog again to see how the vocab words are used.

When you are invited to a party, it’s always nice to bring a gift with you. If you are not sure what to bring, ask the party host if there is something that they would like for you to bring to the party.
If you are invited to a Birthday party, it’s always nice to bring a Birthday present. When you are invited to a house warming party, you should bring a gift for the person’s new home.
Typically you will be asked to RSVP, when you are invited to formal parties. There is usually a phone number or a card, which you should use to let the host know whether or not you plan to attend.
If you are invited to a Pot-luck party, you should prepare some food to share with all of the guests at the party. Pot-lucks are really fun because everyone brings something really yummy to eat and drink.
When people are invited to dinner parties, they usually bring flowers, wine, or dessert.
No matter what type of party you are invited to, you should always bring something and remember to thank the host of the party before you leave.
