This meeting was the turn, to learn a very basic question/interaction in any language.
The famous question: What is your name? The name of a person, is one of the most important features of a person. Remember the name of a person, and calling someone by his real name has a positive effect.
We learned how to say What is your name? and also asking the name of someone: What is her/his name?
In both examples, we were practicing by using answers.
Simple, but very useful question.
