Introducing yourself
When you meet someone for the first time, you should greet each other and exchange names.
In informal situations, you can greet the person by saying either Hi. or Hello. and then tell the
person your first name [Hi, Im Kin. /Hello. My names Maria.]. Hi, Im ... is slightly less formal than
Hello. My names ... . In more formal situations, you can say, How do you do? and then give your
full name [How do you do? My names Maria Romano.].
It is considered polite to follow a greeting with Its nice to meet you. (or just Nice to meet you.).
An appropriate response would be Nice to meet you, too. It is also polite to give a compliment
and to express interest in the person. You might compliment his or her clothing or abilities
[I like your jacket. Your English is very good.]. If you receive a compliment, you should thank the
person and return the same compliment or respond with another. To express interest in the
person, you can ask a question about the situation in which you meet [How long have you been
studying English? ].
