Have we met before?

Hello English eaters!
SPforum_introduce_yourselfSince school started again a few weeks ago, it certainly is a great opportunity to meet a lot of new people and make friends for life🙂

But in order to do that, you have to know how to *introduce youselves*(=przedstawić się) properly and so *make a good impression*(=zrobić dobre wrażenie).

Remember the good old „Hi! What’s your name?” and „My name is…” to start with, and have a closer look at some less standard introductions.

1. *I’m so pleased to meet you!*(=Bardzo miło mi cię poznać!) – have you just been introduced to a new person and you want to tell them how nice it is meeting them? Well, this is just the right phrase to use on such an occasion!

2. *I’ve heard so much about you!*(= Tyle o tobie słyszałem/am!)– in case the person you’re being introducedkeep calm to is well known, this is just the right English small talk phrase to tell them during the introduction!

3. *I’d like you to meet someone!*(=Chcę ci/wam kogoś przedstawić) – this is a typical way of introducing a new person to one or more people.

4. *I am indeed! And you must be…*(=Tak, to ja! A ty to pewnie…) – when someone else approaches you and calls you by your name, and you’re pretty sure who that person is, this is the right English small talk phrase to use: “Hello, is it Mark?” – “I am indeed! And you must be James!?”

5. *Please, call me…*(=Mów mi…) – a few minutes into the conversation with a new person you may want to lighten up the mood by giving the other person a permission to call you by your name or a more friendly version of your name: “And by the way Michael…” – “Please, call me Mike!”

6. *Have we met before?*(=Czy my się skądś nie znamy?) – in case you really don’t recognize the person saying hello to you, you can use this phrase to ask them if you’ve met before. Yes, it’s a bit awkward, but there’s really no better way of putting it!

That’s it for today.
Have fun meeting new people and remember to always be polite!
