treat or invite


New Member
He escuchado que gente usa "treat" para decir invitar, como por ej. to treat John for lunch.

Cual es la diferencia entre treat e invite? alguno se usa para determinadas situaciones?.

Thanks in advance !

    I'm treating you to lunch = I'm inviting you to lunch, AND I'm going to pay the bill (you eat for free).
    I'm inviting you to lunch = the payment situation is unknown; the other person will probably have to pay for his own food.
