Hi,

C: Does your company treat you to lunch every day or you have to eat out by yourself?
D: I have to eat out by myself. And you?
C: My company treats me to lunch.

- Is this conversation natural? Not completely.

I suggest this.
C: Does your company give you a free lunch every day?
D: No. How about you / yours?
C: Yes, they do.

The phrase 'And you?' tends not to be used a lot in casual conversation.

Hi Clive

Just wondering. In what sort of context would one say 'And you' ? I though it sounded short and informal enough to be used only in casual conversations.

Thank youEmotion: smile

Hi,
In my personal experience, I usually hear students of English say that.

Clive
That's interesting. I can probably guess why. Thanks for replying, Clive.

Hi,
I think certain phrases appeal to learners of English. The one I most often hear them over-use is 'so-so'.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Emotion: smile Ha. That does ring a bell. I think it's because they're so short and crisp yet they can keep the conversation flowing (with 'and you' at least). Surely nobody could forget how to say 'and you' or 'so-so'.
