Hello, This is Luke from Luke’s English Podcast and this year I’m going to teach you a phrasal verb every day.

And today’s phrasal verb is “to ask out” – “to ask someone out”.

So, “to ask someone out” means to invite someone to go with you to the cinema, to a restaurant, etc. because you want to start a romantic or sexual relationship with them.

For example: – He finally asked her out”. Or

– “Do you know John asked Jane out last night?”
– “Really? What did she say?”
– “Well, she said “Yes” of course!”

“To ask someone out” – you might say, something like:
– “Do you fancy going to the cinema with me tomorrow?

Okay, That’s it! There’ll be another one of these tomorrow.
Cheers! Bye, bye, by


    Hi, My name is Tapas (as in the name of a Spanish food), I live in India (Kolkata), I like Luke’s English podcast so much. In India many people spend thousands of hours thinking and trying how they can learn to speak English . I think this is the best website to learn English. I have learned English from your website and still learning. Now I am working in an Indian call center in British Telecom process. If you need to phone BT someday, may be I will answer your phone call. Thank you Luke.
