I often meet new people when I am in work. Most of the people is my pupil's parents because I am a teacher.

I don't meet new people often because I works in a University. So, mostly I meet my friends, colleagues, and students. But sometimes when I visit to other departments, I meet new people.

As a sales person I meet new people in our factory or at some big conferences. Sometime I met new people in the gym, when we select the same exercise course maybe we could have the same interest and have the same topic to talk with.
