If you're moving somewhere new, and want to meet other expats, then we've got a great question on how to meet other expats when you move to a new country. Alongside that though, you might want to meet and make friends with some local people too! Whether that's to learn more about the country you've moved to, practice your language skills, have a wider pool of friends, or maybe just sometimes escape the "expat bubble" which certain places can encourage, you might well want to make some local friends. To do that, you'll need to meet and socialise with some local people!
Clearly language can be an issue here. If you don't speak much / any of the language where you're moving to, then your interactions with locals is likely to be pretty restricted, at least initially.
Assuming you can speak at least some of the local language, as a new arrival in town, how do you go about meeting + socialising with locals?
