Hi Alexander Bladeck

'Please to meet you' is a bit more formal than the other two, but otherwise, yes, these phrases all essentially mean the same thing. There are many things you could say in this situation, but these are probably the most common ways to express this idea.

All the best

Hellooo, I d like to ask how I can download the video or mp3. Thank you.

Hello Jean José,

I'm afraid downloads are not available for our video resources. This is for technical and legal reasons. We try to make the .mp3 files available for our audio materials, however, and put a link to download the files on those pages.

I met my best friend when she had a flat tyre and was stranded on the road. I stopped to give her a helping hand and we struck up a friendship that has lasted very many years. I met my spouse through a chance encounter at the church we attended then.
