  • "Interesting" means the opposite of "boring". More specifically, "interesting" means it appeals to or stimulates your mind, not your emotions. For example, learning something new from a conversation could be described as, "interesting".

  • It could have been a short conversation, for example, with a stranger while you were standing in line at the supermarket checkout.

Inventions

International Trade

***********************************************************************

Note 1

Anything "traditional" is at least about 200 years old and could even be thousands of years old. This could even apply to food. For example, the "traditional" staple food of people in East Asia and South-East Asia is rice.

Note 2

To "follow a fashion trend" could mean either, a) to go along with a fashion trend = to change one's clothes (& other fashion items) according to some mass trend = to participate in the social trend or, b) to observe a fashion trend, similar to "follow the news" = "to keep up with the news" but not to participate in the trend. The question here, "Do you follow fashion trends?", means a).

Note 3

Of course, "fashionable" and "comfortable" are not necessarily mutually exclusive!
