  • Hi, I'm Rebecca from

    大家好,我是 的 Rebecca。

  • In this lesson, you'll learn how to introduce yourself and also how to introduce people who don't know each other.


  • Now, sometimes, you learn a lot of English and you don't⏤


  • You still feel nervous; you don't feel confident doing simple things.


  • So, this is one of those simple but important things that you need to be able to do.


  • To be able to walk up to someone, to introduce yourself, and also to know how to respond when someone does that.


  • And that may be true whether you're at a business conference or at a party, okay?


  • So, let's get started.


  • So, herefirst, we'll talk about the formal situation.


  • So, let's saywe'll start over here, "Hello. I'm Bill White."

    假設——我們從這裡開始:「你好,我是 Bill White。」

  • The response is, "Hi. I'm Susan Jones."

    回應是:「嗨,我是 Susan Jones。」

  • So, he says then, "It's a pleasure to meet you."


  • And she says, "It's a pleasure to meet you, too." Okay?


  • Pretty straightforward, pretty simple; why?


  • Because, especially at this part, you're just repeating what the other person says, except that you're adding the word "too", okay?

    因為尤其在這個部分,你只是在重複對方說的話,差別在於你加上了 too(也)這個字,懂嗎?

  • Let's try it again, "Hello. I'm Bill White."

    我們再試一次:「你好,我是 Bill White。」

  • Now, at that point, you probably want to also shake hands, so, let me mention that.


  • So, the things that you should do in addition to what you're going to say are these things:


  • You should try to maintain a straight posture because you look more professional that way, especially in a business situation.


  • In a North American context, also, we establish eye contact, all right?


  • That shows that we're not afraid, that shows we're not hiding anything, all right?


  • Shows confidence.


  • And you want to give a firm handshake, okay?


  • Don't keep your hand really weak.


  • Keep it firm, not hard.


  • Don't squeeze the other person's hand, but make a firm handshake.


  • And this is true whether you're a man or a woman.


  • And usually, we smile because it's a little bitit shows that you're a friendly person and you're happy to meet the other person, even in a business situation.


  • So, let's get started, and what I was saying is about the handshake, you could shake hands right here.


  • So, you could say, "Hello. I'm Bill White."

    那麼,你可以說:「你好,我是 Bill White。」

  • Or, you could say it at this point when you say, "It's a pleasure to meet you." Okay?


  • "Hello. I'm Bill White."

    「你好,我是 Bill White。」

  • "Hi. I'm Susan Jones."

    「嗨,我是 Susan Jones。」

  • "It's a pleasure to meet you."


  • "It's a pleasure to meet you, too."


  • And if you want, one thing you can do is to mention the person's name when you're saying, "It's a pleasure to meet you," okay?


  • But sometimes, in a business context, you're not yet sure whether to say "Ms. Jones" or "Susan", so, you could try it.

    但有時在商務情境,你不確定應該要說「Jones 女士」或「Susan」,所以你可以嘗試。

  • And you could say, "It's a pleasure to meet you, Ms. Jones."

    你可以說:「很榮幸認識妳,Jones 女士。」

  • And she might say, "Oh, you can call me Susan. It's a pleasure to meet you, too," and... and so on, okay?

    而她可能會回答:「喔,叫我 Susan 就好,我也很榮幸認識你」,諸如此類的,懂嗎?

  • But (the) main thing is this part is just repeated.


  • Next, in an informal situation.


  • So, here, instead of saying "Hello", we're just gonna say "Hi".

    在這個情境,我們可以用 Hi(嗨)來取代 Hello(你好)。

  • "Hi! I'm George."

    「嗨,我是 George。」

  • "Hi! I'm Maria."

    「嗨,我是 Maria。」

  • "Nice to meet you."


  • "Nice to meet you, too."


  • Again, we're just repeating, so, what happened?


  • Here, it's a little more formal, so we said, "It's a pleasure to meet you."


  • And here, because it's informal, we just said, "Nice to meet you."


  • "Nice to meet you, too," okay?


  • So, just repeat that, and also, instead of, "Hello", we're just saying, "Hi", all right?

    所以重複這句話就好,另外,我們不說 Hello,而是說 Hi,好嗎?

  • "Hi! I'm George."

    「嗨,我是 George。」

  • "Hi! I'm Maria."

    「嗨,我是 Maria。」

  • "Nice to meet you."


  • "Nice to meet you, too," okay?


  • So, try that.


  • Next, I'll show you how to introduce people who don't know each other.


  • So, let's see how to introduce people to each other.


  • First, we'll do this in a formal situation, okay?


  • So, let's pretend in this scenario that there are three people.


  • You are Carol Smith, and you know Scott Topper, and you know Steven Shaw, but they don't know each other.

    你是 Carol Smith,你認識 Scott Topper 和 Steven Shaw,但他們互不相識。

  • But you don't know that, so you have to find out first, 'cause sometimes people do know each other.


  • So, Carol is gonna speak first, so Carol knows both of them, all right?

    那麼,Carol 會先發言,因為她兩人都認識,好嗎?

  • So she saysCarol Smith says, "Have you met each other?"

    所以她說——Carol Smith 説:「你們見過面嗎?」

  • So, let's say she turns to one of them or to either of them, and she says.


  • So, Scott answers and he says, "No, we haven't."

    那 Scott 會回答說:「不,我們沒見過。」

  • Sometimes, this person will answer, sometimes, both of those people will answer kind of at the same time, say, "No, we haven't."


  • Doesn't matter.


  • And then, Carol says, if it's a formal situation, "Mr. Topper, this is Mr. Shaw. Mr. Shaw, this is Mr. Topper."

    如果是在正式情境,Carol 會接著說:「Topper 先生,這是 Shaw 先生,Shaw 先生,這是 Topper 先生。」

  • Now, sometimes, this part is not necessary, 'cause it's kind of obvious.


  • So, usually... usually, if you just say the first part, people will start introducing themselves, then, to each other or continue with the, "Pleasure to meet you."


  • But if you want to know the traditional way in which it's done, it's done like that, okay?


  • So, "Mr. Topper, this is Mr. Shaw. Mr. Shaw, this is Mr. Topper."

    所以說:「Topper 先生,這是 Shaw 先生,Shaw 先生,這是 Topper 先生。」

  • And, at that point, also, when you're deciding who towhose name to say first,


  • some of the rules of protocol are that if there is an older person and a younger person, you introduce the older person to the younger person, okay?


  • So, let's say in this consituation that Mr. Topper is older, then you would say Mr. Topper's name first.

    我們假設在這個狀況下,Topper 先生較年長,那你就會先說 Topper 先生的名字。

  • If they're both about the same age, it doesn't matter, okay?


  • So, then, Mr. Topper, remember the earlier lessons we learned?

    接著 Topper 先生會——記得我們之前學到的內容嗎?

  • What we learned just now, the expression, "It's a pleasure to meet you."


  • And Mr. Shaw says, "Pleasure to meet you, too," okay?

    然後 Shaw 先生會說:「我也很榮幸認識你」,好嗎?

  • You don't always have to repeat the entire expression "It's a pleasure to meet you."


  • Even in a formal situation, it's fine to say, "Pleasure to meet you, too," 'cause that's the critical part, all right?


  • So, now, that's the formal scenario.


  • Let's go to itthrough it one more time.


  • "Have you met each other?"


  • "No, we haven't."


  • "Mr.Topper, this is Mr. Shaw. Mr. Shaw, Mr. Topper."

    「Topper 先生,這是 Shaw 先生,Shaw 先生,這是 Topper 先生。」

  • "It's a pleasure to meet you."


  • "Pleasure to meet you, too."


  • And remember, at this point when... when Mr. Topper says, "It's a pleasure to meet you,"

    記得在 Topper 先生說「很榮幸認識你」的這個時間點,

  • that's when Mr. Topper will put out his hand for the handshake, and Shaw... Steven Shaw will take his hand and shake his hand.

    這就是 Topper 先生會伸出手握手的時候,而 Steven Shaw 也會回握他的手。

  • Now, if it's an informal situation, it's pretty much the same way at the beginning.


  • "Have you met each other?"


  • "No, we haven't."


  • So, then, you can say, "Scott, this is Steven. Steven, this is Scott."

    接著你可以說「Scott,這是 Steven,Steven,這是 Scott。」

  • And then, they will use the informal expressions.


  • "Nice to meet you."


  • "Nice to meet you, too," okay?


  • So, these expressions, "Pleasure to meet you," "Nice to meet you,"


  • they can take you a long way in introducing yourself and introducing others.


  • Now, of course, there are many ways to introduce yourself, not only what I've said here, not only what I've taught you here.


  • But I always advise my students that it's better to learn one way properly than to learn three different ways and then get mixed up, okay?


  • So, make sure you have mastered one way to introduce yourself and to introduce other people,


  • and then, you can move on to other variations because you are definitely going to hear a variety of variations on this, okay?


  • So, if you'd like to practice this a little bit, go to our website,


  • and you can do a quiz on how to introduce yourself and how to introduce other people.


  • Thanks very much for watching; bye for now.
