    "meet-ups"



    # 5. Speak as Much as You Can

    "The only way language will stick is by speaking and listening often, so take any opportunity you can find to use another language. Talk to friends from other countries, try out an ethnic restaurant and speak to the owners in their language, or join meet-ups of like-minded language learners. Even when I’m at home, I try to speak new words and ask about how things are pronounced correctly in a different language. Remember to work on your accent and tones—one of the best compliments to receive is “your accent is really good!”

    I checked the Free Dictionary looking for "meet-ups" but I just found that it functions as a verb. I do think that "meet up" and "break the ice" are synonyms for each other, aren’t they? Will you simplify its meaning, please?

    Yes, thank you. I didn’t pay close attention to the conjunction or; "used to connect different possibilities". Again, thank you.
