We’ve already looked briefly at how to accept invitations in our programme on making informal invitations. In this BBC How to… decline invitations programme, we look at how to say ‘no’ to an invitation: how to decline an invitation.


Declining invitations
I’d like to but …I’m meeting a friend
I’d love to but …I’m really busy this weekend
Ah, no.. sorry …I’ve got to meet a friend
Other expressions from the programme
Maybe another time?

Maybe next time?

I really appreciate the invitation (or ‘invite’)

I can’t make it
