'Work the room' nghĩa là giao lưu, giao thiệp với nhiều người trong một sự kiện (kinh doanh).

Inside the lower chamber, senators and representatives are all smiles and handshakes as they work the room.

Sam joins the table and uses his single status to work the room, finally making his way to sit next to Ines and the penny drops for the experts.

Meet a few work friends and head to the company party with them. It’s fine to work the room in pairs. The same goes for informal socializing. It doesn’t need to be a one-on-one event. Getting a group together to have drinks or dinner makes it easier to talk to someone you don’t know. Many women prefer to invite colleagues and their spouses or partners into their home, instead of meeting solo or going out to dinner together. Most of us are more comfortable on our own turf.

Fifteen people are feared dead after a bus in the Chinese city of Chongqing plunged (lao ra, lao xuống) from a bridge into the Yangtze River during a fight between the driver and a woman who missed her stop (bị lỡ điểm dừng, lỡ bến), police have said.

An eight-second surveillance video (camera theo dõi/giám sát) posted on the force’s Weibo account showed the two arguing (cãi vã) and grappling (vật lộn) with each other moments before the bus veered across oncoming traffic and off the bridge on Sunday morning.

Wanzhou district police said the 48-year-old woman asked the driver to pull over after she missed her stop. When he refused (từ chối, khước từ), she walked up to the front of the bus to confront him.
