Additionally, how do you say catch up formally?
2 Answers. To "catch up with" is considered--currently at least--informal but standard English. More formal English would be "let us set up an appointment". However, if this is an informal setting, meeting a friend, then "catch up with" is fine.
Can we have a catch up?
It is usually in person but it can also be online. Catching up with someone has a more specific meaning – you haven't seen each other for a while and so you catch up with each other in order to find out the latest news. Catching up is a bit like 'checking in' with someone who you are a bit out of touch with.
