  • In this American English pronunciation video, we're going to go over how to introduce

  • someone.

  • First, watch a few introductions. Then, we'll talk about what we're hearing.

  • >> Hey Staci. Hey. >> Hi.

  • >> Hi. >> This is my boyfriend David.

  • >> Um, hi, David. Nice to meet you. >> It's really nice to meet you.

  • >> I'm Staci. >> Yeah, this is my friend Staci from YouTube.

  • >> Oh, it's really nice to meet you. I see.

  • >> Hey Hilah, this is my boyfriend David. >> Hi David. I'm Hilah.

  • >> Hey. Nice to meet you. >> Nice to meet you.

  • >> Hilah, I did the program in L. A. with. >> Yeah.

  • >> Yes.

  • >> This, uh, this will be a boy. >> Oh! Hi boy!

  • >> In November. >> His name will be Flint.

  • >> Hi Flint. Really? Aw. Cute! >> Hi Flint. Nice to meet you.

  • >> This is our dog Banjo. >> Hi Banjo. Does Banjo shake?

  • >> No. >> Oh.

  • You might have noticed we use the phrase 'this is.' Then you can say the name.

  • This is David, this is Rachel. It's also common to say your relationship

  • to the person, followed by his or her name.

  • This is my boyfriend David. This is my dad, Stan.

  • This is my colleague, Tom. This is my friend, Liz.

  • This is. Stress is on 'this'. They should link together. We have an ending consonant

  • and a beginning vowel, so we want to link the consonant to the vowel to connect the

  • words. This is, this is, this is.

  • The TH is tough for a lot of students. The tongue can come through the teeth. But, since

  • this is a voiced TH, th instead of th, you don't have to bring the tongue tip all the

  • way out. You can keep the teeth mostly together, and press your tongue on the backsides of

  • the teeth inside the mouth. Thi-, thi-, thi-, thi-, immediately pulling away. Make sure

  • the tongue tip isn't at the roof of the mouth, or it will sound like a D. Di-, di-,

  • dis, dis is, dis is. Th-, th-, this, this is, this is. Can you

  • hear the difference? 0:02:58.530,0:02:39.430 This, dis. [3x]

  • This is my boyfriend David. This is my dad, Stan.

  • This is my colleague, Tom. This is my friend, Liz.

  • This is, this is.

  • >> This is my boyfriend, David, >> Hi! [3x]

  • This is, this is.

  • >> This is my friend Staci from YouTube. [3x]

  • This is, this is.

  • >> This is my boyfriend, David. [3x]

  • This is, this is.

  • >> This is our dog, Banjo. [3x]

  • This is, this is.

  • >> Hey Hilah, this is my boyfriend David. >> Hi David. I'm Hilah.

  • >> Hey. Nice to meet you. >> Nice to meet you.

  • >> Hilah

  • Normally, after being introduced, you say, “Nice to meet you.” Notice how the T in

  • 'meet' can sound like a CH sound when the next word is 'you'. Nice to meet you,

  • 'chew', 'chew'. Nice to meet you.

  • >> Nice to meet you. >> It's really nice to meet you. >> I'm Staci. [3x]

  • Nice to meet you.

  • >> Nice to meet you. >> Nice to meet you. >> Hilah… [3x]

  • Nice to meet you.

  • So, the two key phrases for introducing someone: This is ___. And, if you've been introduced,

  • Nice to meet you.

  • Special thanks to Hilah of HilahCooking and Staci of VeryPinkKnits for helping me with

  • this video. Is there a phrase you'd like to learn to pronounce better? Let me know

  • in the comments below. And don't forget to sign up for the Rachel's English mailing

  • list, where you'll get all the latest and greatest news from me.
