I send alot of messages to my friend and family everyday by social media. It's very easy to use so that we can communicate with each other although we are far away.

Hi everyone! Can you explain me about "come 2 cinema"?

Why did Lucy say "come 2 cinema"? Is it because the cinema is near her house? If the cinema is near Peter's house, should Lucy say "go 2 cinema"?
I'm a bit confused...!

Hi Ken! That's a really good question. She says 'come' because she has already organised to go to the cinema, so she's already there, mentally. We often use 'come' in this way in English:

I'm going shopping with Clare tomorrow. Do you want to come?
I'm going for a burger with Amelia on Saturday. Do you want to come?

Are you coming to Ollie's party? (=I'm going.)

Does that make sense? Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens team)

Yup, got it! Thank you Jo.
The thing is it's used to express the speaker's view. Hmm, language is living !

In the summer I send 200-500 or more a day to my best friend.
At school time maybe 10-100 a day.
