  • Hi! Great to see you dear viewer.

  • What’s your name?’ is one of the most asked questions we face in our lives.

  • You meet strangers, they ask you your name, and you ask them back.

  • It is a conversation starter at any place.

  • So let’s listen to some conversations which include asking your name and getting to know people.

  • Hit the pause button whenever you want and repeat the dialog for better practice.

  • Let’s get started now!!

  • Hey Rob.

  • Hey Cindy. How are you?

  • I’m fine, thank you. So what’s up with you lately?

  • Nothing. I like this girl of the office but I don’t have the guts to ask her name.

  • You silly. It’s easy, just sayWhat’s your name?”

  • I think there’s a bit too direct. I don’t want to scare her.

  • Well, waiting for someone to introduce you to each other will be a bit formal.

  • Yeah, that’s right.

  • Why don’t you say hi and then introduce yourself?

  • That way shell know your name and shell probably tell you her name, too.

  • That’s a good idea! Thanks Cindy.

  • Youre welcome.

  • Hi, there.

  • Hey.

  • I am Harry Daniels, and you are ...?

  • Oh. I am Rosa Sprinkles.

  • You work in the Marketing department, right?

  • Yes. And I guess you are in the Human Resources department...

  • Yeah. How did you know?

  • I see you every day. I knew who you were but never knew your name.

  • Oh..okay...So you now know it and I also know yours.

  • Yeah, and I hope I’ll see you around

  • Hi Rachel. How are you?

  • I’m fine, but I’m sorry, I forgot your name.

  • I’m Kiara, remember? From the salon?

  • Oh yes, Kiara! Hi, how are you?

  • I’m great. I thought you would remember me.

  • I did remember you but I just didn’t remember your name. I’m really bad at remembering people’s names.

  • It’s okay. No problem. Maybe you won’t forget it now.

  • I hope not!

  • Hey, Finn. How are you?

  • Hey there. I’m good. Youre Brody’s sister, right?

  • Yeah. I am.

  • I’m really sorry. But I never got a chance to ask Brody your name.

  • Oh. My name is Rachel. It’s Ok since this is the first time we meet.

  • Yeah. I saw you at school once and I remember Brody mention you were his sister but he never told me your name.

  • No problem, Finn. It was nice meeting you.

  • Same here. I'll see you around.

  • See ya!

  • Informally we say that the courage or bravery you show to do something is guts.

  • Do you have the guts to stand up for what’s right when everyone else wants to do what’s wrong?

  • In a customary or particular way. Formal speech means absolute correct speech with no slang or idioms.

  • Formal behavior is behaving with excellent manners, and sometimes in a specific way according to custom.

  • Casual is behavior or a language that’s not formal; it’s informal.

  • You are casual when you are with your friends and family. Casual and informal can be used in the same way in most sentences.

  • A salon is a place where you can get your hair or makeup done by a beautician or a stylist.

  • You might go to the salon just before a special occasion.

  • Thank you for watching this lesson. Well be back with a new one tomorrow.
