The Bob and Rob Show's first lesson! We talked about our first names, U.K. geography and greetings that are used when meeting someone for the first time. We also gave examples of American and British words that refer to the same thing.

Greetings:
A: Nice to meet you.
B: Nice to meet you, too.
OR
A: How do you do?
B: How do you do?
