4 Making suggestions

To make suggestions the following expressions are used, all followed by the verb in the infinitive.

¿Te apetece ir al cine?

Do you fancy going to the cinema?

¿Te gustaría ir a la fiesta de aniversario de mis padres?

Would you like to go to my parents’ anniversary party?

¿Quieres ir al museo?

Shall we go to the beach?
