I will asking about name, old, schools, where do you live , jobs, hobies ,ect... And nice too meet you

First I like to know name, where is the person from, talk about job, recreation and other stuff.

Hi my group mate my name said i am going to share you something that i like to talk about new people.
as you all know it is not good to ask people personal question or affaris ,so i always set off conversation rage from name to work.
fistly i ask them their names in polite way then ,i give them more information about my self and the others be confindent to talk theirs.

I ask his/her name. I usually talk about his/her whereabouts, nature of work, interests, likes and dislikes.

What do you usually talk about when you meet people for the first time?

I usually talk about something like my favourite dishes, news, lastest movie. Honestly, It is difficult to talk with strangers because I don't know what subject they would like to discuss. I am going to be comfortable to talk just in case that is my friends.

Hello, when i meet someone for the first time i usually ask him/her to present himself/herself. I want to know, for example, his/her name, his age, where he/she lives, something about his/her study and why he/she is here. But i also like to ask him/her something about his/her strenghts and weaknesses and something about his hobbies and his/her free times.

When I meet someone for the first time, I asked him or her about general information such as: name, nationality, workplace and etc.

Me too ....

I usually ask their name and job, I ask where they are from if they are not local Swedish or local, and I sometimes ask where they live but not always people here are too shy and it is not too easy to make contact.

When I meet someone for the first time I usualy ask about basics informations like: name, where he or she lives, work, hobbys. Only convenient questions not awkward.
