How to introduce yourself in English
Today's Business English lesson is about introducing yourself properly in a professional context.
What do you say when you meet someone for the first time?
Let's go through the different phrases that you will use in that situation.
When two people meet for the first time, before they start the conversation, they exchange greetings, or they greet each other.
Greetings is something friendly or polite that you say or do when you meet or welcome someone
You can send (your) greetings to members of your family for their birthday, or send a greeting card when it's Christmas.
HOW TO GREET SOMEONE
Depending on the moment of the day, you will say:
- Good morning!
- Good afternoon!
- Good evening!
If you want to be less formal, you can say:
SAY YOUR NAME
- Allow me to introduce myself
- Let me introduce myself
- My name is …
GIVE YOUR JOB TITLE
- I’m from...
- I work for...
- I’m in charge of...
- I’m responsible for ...
RESPOND TO AN INTRODUCTION
There are different ways to respond to an introduction. Here are a few examples.
A: How do you do?
B: How do you do?
A: I’m pleased to meet you
B: It’s nice to meet you too!
A: It’s a pleasure to meet you.
In any case, don't forget to smile and look happy to meet the person. If shaking hands is the custom, do it.
