    keep on good terms

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask what the phrase "keep on good terms" mean.

    You have excellent socializing skills and find it easy to keep on good terms with everybody in the office and at home.

    Does "keep on good terms with somebody" mean "to maintain/have good relationship with somebody"?

    I'm not a professional teacher, but I'd say that's a nice explanation, especially the "maintain a good relationship" since the phrase was "keep on good terms".

    More "maintain" than "have".
    If you have a good relationship than you are (not keep) on good terms with someone.
