Hi everyone! I am looking for an informal way to ask someone to meet up. Is "are you down for meeting this weekend" correct? What's the difference with "are you down to meet this weekend"?

Hi Francesco, Being up for something or being down to do something are both equal informal expressions. I would say the second way is more slanglish than the first one. You could say: Let's meet up this weekend to practice English. Are you up for it ? Or Are you down to do this ?

You cannot say it with down. Use up instead! 'You're up for meeting this weekend?' Or omit the be verb (are) if you're having a very informal conversation. Now, you cannot say, 'up to meet...' Because it sounds very weird, has a very formal tone to it although you would never use sentences like these in the first place while making a formal conversation.
