Where do you meet your friends? What time do you usually meet?
I used to meet my friends at the bus stop near the university...We didn't have a favourite place, we used to go to some cafe or a fast food restaurant where we could order an ice cream, a smoothie, o some other drink with a snack. The time depended on the classes schedule, we used to get together when we were free. If we had to meet on the weekend, then that was usually in the afternoons after 5.00 p.m. to take a break and relax after having studied a while during the day.

I meet my friends after work sometimes in the mall or in the club.
