Meeting and Reunion

“Meeting” is when people come together or meet, usually to talk about a specific topic or topics.


We have a meeting on Monday with the marketing department.

A “Reunion” is an event that happens so people who haven’t seen each other in a long time can see each other again (a family reunion, a high school reunion, etc.).


We have a family reunion every two years! It’s such a great moment!


Appointment and Date

The word Appointment is used for agreements to meet someone at a specific time and place (a doctor’s appointment, an appointment with a client, etc.). 

We do not use “appointment” for romantic purposes.


I had a dentist appointment yesterday.

We use “Date” to talk about events with two people who have a romantic relationship or might eventually have a romantic relationship. We do not use “date” for non-romantic engagements.


My wife and I went to the park on our first date.



How often do you have meetings at work?

When was the last time you went to a family reunion?
