Nice lesson.

I would go to the north sea with the person and introduce her to my friends.

I would show them the Speicherbecken, which is not far away.
There is also a restaurant, where you can eat and drink something while your making a pause from swimming. I live in little village and you can not do much here. So this is a great thing to do in summer.

My friend was new in my local area , so I showed him the town centre. I also showed him the food market and the mosque for praying.

If someone new comes to our residential area, first of all I will show him prayer area , the restaurants and last, the guestrooms.

Definitely I'll show her all the good places to get good and local food, and maybe the bars nearby and where the malls are too.

I would show the tourisctics places, the ancient places, and plces where he or she can eat and drink a coffee

Hi i don't understand what that mean " It's great to put a face to a name"

Hi masumeh,

We say this when we meet someone for the first time who we have spoken with or written to.

For example, you might write emails to someone for a period of time. You know the person as you have communicated with them and you know their name. When you finally see then you can put a face to their name. It's a way of saying 'now I know what you look like!'

I would like to show them the best restaurant in the area, the right place to buy groceries at a cheap price, & the best destination to hangout with friends.
