How to meet in English


Traveling abroad, for business or pleasure, is always an adventure. An adventure not devoid of romanticism, new fascinating acquaintances and interesting meetings. Unfortunately, the most sincere impulses to meet and get to know a person are often broken by a seemingly insignificant obstacle - the language barrier. It would be possible to communicate with gestures and body language, but, as you know, women love with their ears. Yes, and men, what is there to hide, too. Therefore, whether you like it or not, learning a couple of key phrases is still useful.

First, let's take a look at the general registry of words related to romantic relationships.
