    Do I like chips? Yes I do, but I don't like deep frying it in oil.
    So I bought an Airfryer where I can fry chips , but I can leave the oil out.
    I have been trying this kitchen appliance out for weeks.
    However, my chips are still not perfect.
    Most of the time they are not golden brown and sometimes they are too crispy.
    Not easy!
    This evening a friend of mine will come to dinner.
    I have a meal with chips in mind, but I'm not sure if I can serve her the chips from my Airfryer.
    Maybe I'd better take her out for a meal in a fish and chip restaurant.
    She is my best friend and I won't go out of my way to give her a nice evening.
    Okay, the die is cast, we'll go out this evening. :)

    I like to go out for dinner and this evening I want to try out that new restaurant.
    If I don’t like it, I’ll just take out my wallet to pay, but leave out the tip.

    @Lynne Thank you teacher!
    On this weekend, I have planned to go out with my sister to take a round of our new house. After that, I will clean up my room and take out all unnecessary things. In the evening, I will try out a new recipe that is Apple beignets. At night, I will leave out for a walk with my friend for sometime.

    ??? @Lynne ?
    I don't really understand which verb is wrong. :(

    Thanks anyway for your correction.

    When I go out I'll take out the rubbish and try out the new dustbins instead of leaving out everything in a messy pile.

    Last day my parents went out to buy new furniture, I was alone at home and I sat on my bed by myself all the day watching TV, I felt hungry so that I took some eggs out of the fridge, I think my parents were eating out.
    I just wanted to try out some new spices in my fried egg, I'm so experted in frying eggs :)
    I'm used to spicy foods that's why I can never leave pepper out .

    I tried out living with you but that turned out to be wrong; I'll leave out the details, but now I want you to go out of that door and take out all your stuff.

    What is wrong with that new restaurant @Lynne?
    I want to try out a particular new restaurant - that new restaurant...

    @april -
    She is my best friend and I won't go out of my way to give her a nice evening.
    "Won't" implies you're not bothered if she has a good time, or not.
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 8,802 mod
    @lichaamstaal - You are writing for the reader, and the reader has no idea what new restaurant you're talking about.

  • FrankFrank Moderator Posts: 5,501 mod
    Okay, I understand what you mean @Lynne.

    I would like to go out with you on hill station. This time, I have decided to try out new adventures like hiking. I have taken out many things for this trip. But later on, I left out many of them due to my short stay.

    Window shopping is one of my pleasures, I remember mostly going out with my friends and looking at the new men's clothing .
    After moving to Indonesia we couldn't go out as much as we did in Iran. We weren't used to heavy rain. One they I left out my umbrella. The weather was sunny but suddenly It started raining, I took a plastic bag out of my pocket and put it on my head. It seemed to had worked for me, It was the first time that I tried out a plastic bag as an umbrella.

    @Lynne for correction please:)
    My sister needs few books for the preparation of her exams. So I have planned to go out with her to a nearby market. I have taken out my wallet from my purse but it was empty. So, I have left it out and decided to try out my credit card this time.

    Dangerous @bubbli! If you're anything like me, you go into a bookshop planning to buy just one or two books and come out with a pile. I used to avoid taking plastic with me if I didn't want to go mad and spend too much.
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 8,802 mod
    So @april. Are we agreed that you meant:-

    She is my best friend, so I will go out of my way to give her a nice evening.

    I think this was a tough one. Here's an example:-

    We went out for a drive yesterday to try out the new code for the radio in the van. We didn't forget to take Laika out for a walk, we didn't want her to feel left out.
