Jason: I really want to make many friends while I'm here in the USA. Do you have any advice for me, Shelby?
Shelby: Well, I think you should try to mingle with your classmates as much as possible. Don't be shy. Introduce yourself to as many people as you can. You can meet many people this way!
Jason: Thanks! I'm going to a party tomorrow night. I will try it!
I took my girlfriend to my company's holiday party last weekend. As soon as we arrived, she started introducing herself to all of my co-workers. She mingled with everyone all night! I didn't see her again until we were ready to go home.
