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.

(2) invite sb. to do sth=ask sb.to do sth. 邀请某人做谋事 e.g. He also invited a singer to sing for his friends. (3) invitation to sw /to do sth. 去某地/做某事的邀请 e.g. an invitation to the party an invitation to go to the summer camp 2. I look forward to hearing from you all. 我期盼着你们的答复。 look forward to 是一个固定搭配，表示“期待 期盼”， 其中to 是介词，因此后面如果使用动 词，要试用其-ing 形式。又如： I look forward to your reply. 我期待你的答复。 I’m really looking forward to seeing my little grandson again. 我好期待再次见到我的小孙子。 3. Hope you can make it! 希望你能参加（聚会）! 此句中的make it 是个独立地表达方式，表示 通过努力或是历经困难后取得成功、完成某 事，可译为“ 成功；胜利”， 但有时也要视 语 境及上下文灵活进行翻译，此处便是如此。 e.g. If we run, we should make it. 要是我们跑的话，应高不会迟到。 Though it was difficult, they still made it. 虽然很难，但他们依然成功了。 4. Please reply in writing to this invitation by Friday, December 20th. 请于12月20日以前以书信方式回复此邀请。 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。 Homework Plan a party Write everything you have to do next week. Choose a day and time to have a party.
