Whether you invite someone or someone invites you over for dinner is a great opportunity to get to know them better. Make the most out of your invitation.

Imagine you’re talking in English about car insurance. What would you say? What would others say? Here are a few suggestions:
- You’re driving on the freeway and the highway patrol stops you. The highway patrol officer asks you for your license, car registration and car insurance. He says that if you don’t have car insurance, he will need to tow away your car. What would you tell the highway patrol officer? What would the highway patrol officer tell you?
- You’re at a car insurance office checking on a car insurance quote. What would you tell the insurance agent? What would the insurance agent tell you?
- You’re at a car dealership looking at new cars. You find a car you like and want to put money down to buy it, and the new car salesperson asks for your car insurance card. What would you tell the new car salesperson? What would the new car salesperson tell you?
Owning a car comes with many responsibilities, including securing proper car insurance. Do you need to have car insurance in your country?

PART 3 CAR INSURANCE
In my country, all vehicles must to have an appropiate insurance, but they are, generally, too expensive compared with the salary of majority of the population. For this reason, a very simple car insurance was created, which barely covers tow truck trailer on road, called “Civil Liability Insurance”
Greeting Maestro Sersea
How to make suggections to meeting or plans with other person is something that we do daily. And almost always we have to fit our schedure with to the anothers. It could be in the job, family, with colleage, etc.
It’s good to show courtesy at the moment to have a dinner invitation and sometimes is needes ask if there’s code dress, specially job to dinner invitation.
In respond to the question if, Do you need to have car insurance in your country?
If you buy a car in a car dealership, yes. You’ll have to afford it a car insurance. Almost always is charged to the monthly payment. Here in Honduras isn’t necessary to have a car insurance to drive, but a patrol officer if, can ask you the license and the car registration, and Id in order to prevent the thifted of cars or another illicit acts. There’s not a law that banned you to drive.

Today, I learned about three conversations topic for learners. There are weekend plans, dinner invitations, and car insurance. I would like to love a plan for the weekend to have fun with family or friends. And I have been invited from my new neighbors who are moving next to my home last week. In our country, we are needed a car license when we are driving on the highway. Sometimes we need it when we are driving downtown areas. Thank you very much.
