Language level

Beginner: A1


When I talk to someone for the first time, I alway introduce myself by saying my name and greeting. I try to talk about light topics like work, weather and hobbies.

When I meet people for the first time I prefer to introduce and talk about the job, family, and recreation.

When I meet a new person, I usually ask questions like:
What’s your name?
Where are you from?
Where do you live?
How long have you been here?
What’s your profession?

I'm very a shy person so I don't talk a lot when I meet someone the first time. But when they ask me questions I can answered. In my country people want to know your age, if you are married and get children, what is your own language, your job etc..
