"...par premièrement s’asseoir avec eux"

is it how you would correctly say "by firstly sitting down with them"

    This is one way of saying it. But I don't like it so much because of the "p" alliteration at the beginning of this sentence!

    Therefore, I suggest another possibility (i.e. among some), which is "... en commençant par s'asseoir avec eux".

    Hi everybody,

    Another suggestion: En s'asseyant d'abord avec eux.
    Or: De prime abord s'asseoir avec eux (in this case, the sentence should continue with something like ensuite or et...)
