  • In this extra learning lesson, we will learn in detail about the words and phrases you use when you introduce yourself.

  • ntroducing yourself to someone does not mean that you are just telling your name.

  • The introduction can include other details such as: where you are from, where you work, the job you have, your hobbies and much more.

  • Yes, that’s right. How you introduce yourself depends on the situation you are in, and the amount of information expected from you.

  • Introducing yourself to someone youve just met.

  • When you are introducing yourself to someone youve just met, you can sayHi’, ‘Hello’, ‘Hey’. ‘Hellois more of a formal way.

  • These are universal phrases and you can use them with anyone, be it a senior, a friend, a relative or someone younger.

  • These phrases are suitable for both formal and informal situations.

  • SayingHelloorHiisn’t enough. In order to introduce yourself, you have to tell the person your name

  • You can start with something simple like,

  • 'Hi my name is Marley. or 'Hello', I am Marley'. In formal situations you may want to give both your first and last name.

  • When you are talking with friends you can use a colloquial expression likeThey call me Marley.’

  • After greeting people and telling them your name, you can also tell them how old you are or what you do for a living.

  • If you are an engineer, you can say: ‘I’m 26 years old and I’m an engineer’. By telling them what you do, the person can know you better.

  • Yes, right! You can also tell someone where you live or where you are from.

  • To tell people about your origin, you can say for example: ‘I am from Michigan or ‘I have come from Michigan’.

  • In telling someone where you live or where you've been, this can be a great conversation starter as they may have something to relate to you.

  • You can also ask people their name, or tell them some more about yourself.

  • Like what your hobbies are, what you like to do in your free time, where you hang out, and so on. It’s all part of getting to know you better.
