Where do you meet your friends? What time do you usually meet? In our small village, there's a lot of activities for people of the third age. We usually meet our "old" friends when we participate at the activities. We also meet friends at the restaurant We usually have our meetings at noon. At our age, It's better for our digestion

The fact that I haven't got many friends. But, I have any best friends. Sometimes, I meet her at her home or my home. Then, we go shopping, coffee, eating, etc ... I usually meet my friend on my free day or sometimes after work. On that days, we often chat, talk about work, life ... And I feel relax when I meet my friend.

At school and university I meet my friends (male/female) anywhere in the school and university environment. We usually meet anytime. We meet each other without any discussion before. They find me then we get together. It's up to them. At the office, outside my job as helpdesk years ago, I only meet friends that sit in the same room with me and their friend who come to visit them then go with them if they ask me to go with them. When I still work at the office an old friend ask me to meet in a building (where there are a hypermarket, shops, food courts, restaurants, and fast foods) near my office then she finds me where ever I am there, after we met, we decide where we want to eat. The other old friends visit me in the office as guests without exact times but surely I vacant for them on that time. So, in this lesson I learn to communicate and discuss well to plan a date.

I usually meet with my friends at the University, because, it's a central place on the city. Additionally, at University we can find any places to share with friends. There are cafés, gardens, tables and chairs where we can sit, drink and talk about anything.
