Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Lesson 330. The title today's lesson is to
have hold or throw a party, not make or celebrate a party. So again we can say
any of those three are okay. You have a party, you throw a party, actually throw a
party I think is really the most common one. But you have a party you can hold
a party. It sounds a little bit more formal but we use that as well, very
common. Make a party. Make a party sounds a little weird.
We don't usually say that and ' make' would be really closer to the idea of like a
arrange a party or set up a party. We might say that if we're talking about
organizing the party. But a lot of students might make the mistake by using
make, just like we would use to have, or to hold it, to throw. You shouldn't say
that. But we don't usually say make a party and celebrate a party also sounds
a little weird. Even though, we might celebrate, we don't really celebrate the
party, we usually celebrate the event. So you celebrate somebody's birthday or you
celebrate somebody's anniversary. You usually celebrate the event and not the
party. The party is what you do to celebrate. So we don't usually say that
we celebrate a party. Okay. Anyway, let's continue. Let's , let's look at some
examples here. Again with the X. This is wrong.
We are going to make a party for Bill on Saturday. No. You shouldn't say that. You
should say we're going to throw a party for Bill on Saturday. Of course , you could use
the other two too. You could have said hold or have a party. They'd both be fine. Again with the X
this is wrong here. We are going to celebrate a party at Jill's house on
Friday. No. This ... you know, again you're not celebrating the party you're
celebrating some event. You're having a party to celebrate. So what you should
say here is we are going to hold a party. So again, with the check. This is correct.
A party at Jill's house on Friday or on Friday night. And the last one we have
here. Again the X this is wrong. His company made a
going-away party for him. No. His company had a going-away party for him. Anyway
I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
