I quite often meet with new people due to my job. I work as a sales executive. Besides, I use a few apps in order to improve my English and they cause to meet with new people.

For me, I just meet new people from time to time, sometimes once a week. When I join a new team, I meet several team members who are also new to me. Every time I go to a party, I have a chance to meet some new people. When I become a new club member, I can also meet some new ones. We can get to know more from each other. I think that is very interesting. Life is full of new things and new people around us. Never ever stop dreaming. Always try to find new things and meet new people. Eeryone is something new in this world. Be glad of it.

My current job makes me not a lot of opportunities to meet new people. I can meet a few new people in my English class or my office, even at the book stores.

I don´t meet people often. Only sometimes in the gym or some new neighbor in the building.
