The differences in the patterns of Japanese invitations were analyzed in the conversations among Japanese native speakers only or among Japanese native speakers and Chinese learners of Japanese language. The subjects were asked to work in pairs to perform role-playing with different degrees of burden degrees and the resulting data were analyzed by following the use of spoken paragraphs (wadan) including the opening, head, and closing sections. The results showed clear differences in each section between Japanese native speakers and Chinese learners. Firstly, in the opening section, there were fewer Chinese learners than native speakers who used the preceding stage before entering an invitation. Secondly, in the head section, the Chinese learners seemed to use more combinations of spoken paragraphs in situations with a high degree of burden. Thirdly, in the closing section, Chinese learners were found to provide information about invitation after accepting the invitation in situations with a low degree of burden. However, native Japanese speakers tended to provide invitation information at an early stage before the invitation was accepted.
