( culture notes )
When you are in foreign countries, you should know whether an invitation is a real invitation. If you are invited, but not given a specific time, this is not a real invitation. For example, “Why not have dinner some day?” You mustn’t ask when you can come. It’s not polite. This is a real invitation: “ Can you come to my birthday party on Saturday night? When you are asked this way, you should only say: “Yes, I’d love to”. Or “sorry, I can’t. I have to …” and give him or her your reason.
