when I came to the U.S. about 2years ago.

I met a American friend at school. I wasn't speak English well but we played together for a few month until I moved.

I think saw him yesterday at my school. ( may be he moved too.) so I think I need to say hi to him when I see him again.

What should I say? I want to show that my English has been improved. Even though It didn't much...

Can I say

Hi. I think saw you the other day, but I wasn't sure It was you or not. It is a samall world.

So.How have you been? Did you moved to around here?

I have been though a lot. As you know, my mom was sick, she passed away on September last year. I think of her every minute and miss her every day but I am try to do my best for school. (my mom was sick when we played together He knows she was sick.)

What do you do?

I am working at clothing store. only weekends.

I am a shy person.

What also should I say?

What American people say when you meet a old friend unexpectly?

Thanks for your help.

I would say "Oh, it's so nice to see you again." Or, "I'm so happy to see you again."

And until the person responded with information about himself or asked me questions, I wouldn't say anything else about myself.
