Meetup is a great way to get an opportunity to connect with people and to practice your English!

If you are living in the US or even in your home country and you want to have a chance to make friends and speak English, sign on to Meetup.com and search for meetups according to your interests.

What questions can you ask to start a conversation with someone at a meetup?

 

Here are a few ideas to start a conversation:

  • “Is this your first meetup?” (this is a great icebreaker that can be used to help people loosen up and connect)
  • “How did you find out about this meetup?”
  • “What other meetups are you a part of”

 

How to invite someone to meet again:

  • “Hey we should hang out sometime.”
  • “Let’s get together and (go hiking) or (practice our Spanish).”
  • “Can I get your number? Maybe we can meet up sometime.”
