Dear Reema, I admire your pedagogical skills very much. You are so live when you deliver the sessions. You have got the true cultural context of English so you bring the very nuances of the language. Thank you so much for your efforts to expose the audience who are not accustomed to speak English correctly with its nuances.

Hi Rima, one question.
Can't we use "Great interacting with you," after second interaction? Is it to be used only for the first meeting??
Hope you'd clarify my query.
Great to have your wonderful lesson like this!
One of the best things about traveling is to meet new people. We met through the Miss Travel app and were lucky enough to see our story develop way beyond the first dinner (which Jade still thinks was not a date, but it totally was). After traveling to Paris, Madrid, London and Chile together, we still maintain contact despite the thousands of miles which stand between us and both aspire to write the second chapter of our story. This type of experience is what makes life so worth living! The hotel, staff and service were all first class. The events were smoothly run with professionalism and more than enough food and drink for everyone.
