That’s right Teddy. It is specifically used to invite someone inside some place.
Why don’t you share an example of ‘ask in’ with us, Rex?
Sure Teddy. Don't leave him standing on the doorstep – ask him in!
That’s a good example. And here is another one: I asked my new neighbours in for a cup of tea.
