A perfect night out with my boyfriend. we are going to see the city, walk the streets together, enjoy delicious food, see the stars,and sing love songs together because it's been long without meeting owing to the fact that we are in a long distance relationship

For me, a perfect evening is a time with friends or loved ones. We could go to the park, the movies, the ice rink, the cafe, or just go for a walk. The place is chosen by mood and weather. A good evening’s all about company

I would like to spend night out like that. At first go to italian or japanese restaurant to eat something, than watch some film in the cinema, maybe adventure movie. After all of this go dancing to night club called Jellyfish in Chengdu China or go to KTV to sing some songs. That's all.

I think the night when I can watch a film with my friends in my house having pazama party with pizza will be the greatest night, I guess!!

I’m not really used to going out at nights, but, if I do it so, I will prefer to go to the restaurants with people I love Such as my best friends or any girl I love, I also like going alone for a walk alongside the beach because it’s quiet and there isn’t much noise and a lot of people either, so, I enjoy being in this kind of place.

Submitted by Niriamcar on Sat, 05/09/2020 - 08:28

For my, the perfect night is something similar at the reading. Just see a movie and go to dance. That's sounds perfect. But personally, I prefer the party outdoors, at the beach.

Submitted by Elife on Sun, 02/09/2020 - 21:42

For me, my perfect night would be to go to the beach with my boyfriend, walk through the sand, while looking at the stars.

Submitted by Wxllxam on Wed, 04/08/2020 - 10:10

My perfect night should be in Ibiza, with my cousin and my friends. It should have a party on the beach with food and drinks, with a lot of people to make new relationships, with EDM and maybe Jonas Blue

I really like hang out with my friends at night There are many ways to make my night out fun. I often start with good food, and that is what everybody likes. I can have some games if I want like play card, karaoke .... Night out with roommates or classmates is my hobby. So, for me a perfect night out would be full of life.

A perfect night out with me is a weekend night with nice weather, no need to worry about tomorrow's work and my favorite song lists. Sometimes I would love to go for a walk around my university's campus or maybe take a sit in a nice coffee shop and relax. To be honest, I really enjoy spending time on my own. With me, it is not loneliness but likes having time to learn more about myself and do things that I always want to.

For me, a perfect night out if having great time with my roommate. It'll be a party on the beach or anywhere as long as we're together. I think we 'll have plenty of fun, CRAZY that we haven't done before. So it's the time we don't need to limit ourselves.

Hey everyone, I really like the topic. Though I wasn't sure with exercise 2 (2. Check your understanding: gap fill ) question No. 2. The statement is: _______ 's friend has recommended a good nightclub. The answers says it is "Iggy". But isn't it Iggy who recommends the club. So it should be rather Marc or Cat. Could you help? Thank you best wishes!

Hi zfry,

Iggy says 'Yeah, my mate Barney knows it, says there's a great DJ, amazing dance music'.

The word 'mate' means the same as 'friend'. So it's Iggy's friend (Barney) who has recommended a good night club.

I hope that helps.


Best wishes,

I like watching TV at home. My parents are strict and I can only watch TV on Friday and Saturday, so I like to spend all night to watch my favourite anime.

Hi Samduykhanh!
7ish is referring to the time.
- 'What time shall we meet up tonight?'
- '7ish (around 7 o'clock)?'
Do you often text your friends to make arrangements?
