J'ai utilisé le verbe "rencontrer" au lieu de "retrouver" pour "to meet." Quelle est la différence entre les deux verbes?
Freeform Writing Exercise B1
There are different words in French for meeting someone.
Rencontrer = to meet someone by chance or for the first time. Sometimes "to run into someone".
Retrouver = to meet someone again after a long time, or a planned get-together.
Rejoindre = "to join up" with someone
