    communicate/socialize

    Which sentence is better?
    1) She is very charming. Everyone likes to communicate with her.
    2) She is very charming. Everyone likes to socialize with her.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: communicate/socialize

    "Communicate" wouldn't make sense there. That means that people like to telephone her, write to her, email her and talk to her. We don't usually decide to do those things because someone is charming.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: communicate/socialize

    Everyone enjoys talking to her.
    Everyone enjoys hanging out with her.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
