  • Imagine you're on a plane. There's someone next to you. What do you say?

  • Hi. Alisha here. Introducing yourself in English is easy. In

  • this lesson, you're going to learn how with Gustavo and Henry, who meet on a plane

  • Gustavo's moving to New York. His family is going to join him later in the month. Henry

  • is in the seat when Gustavo gets on the plane. Let's watch!

  • Excuse me. Sorry about that!

  • Hi! How do you do? I'm Gustavo. Nice to meet you, Gustavo. I'm Henry Eddins.

  • I'm sorry. Can you say that again, please? A bit slowly?

  • Henry Eddins. Henry Eddins.

  • That's it. But please call me Hank. Hank. Nice to meet you.

  • Now, with subtitles!

  • Excuse me. Sorry about that!

  • Hi! How do you do? I'm Gustavo. Nice to meet you, Gustavo. I'm Henry Eddins.

  • I'm sorry. Can you say that again, please? A bit slowly?

  • Henry Eddins. Henry Eddins.

  • That's it. But please call me Hank. Hank. Nice to meet you.

  • Here are the key words from the scene.

  • Hi

  • but

  • Excuse me.

  • too

  • Nice to meet you.

  • How do you do?

  • Here are the key phrases from the scene.

  • How did Henry apologize when he realized he was in Gustavo's way?

  • Sorry about that. Sor-ry a-bout that.

  • In general, this expression, when used to respond to "Excuse me," shows a friendly willingness

  • to help the other person. In this case, Henry wanted to show he was

  • happy to move out of Gustavo's way. You can also use it to apologize for a small

  • mistake, like bumping into someone on the street, or blocking someone's way in the aisle of a supermarket.

  • Now you try! Say Henry's line after Gustavo speaks.

  • Excuse me

  • Sorry about that.

  • Later, Gustavo also used the word 'sorry' to apologize when he didn't understand Henry's

  • name. Which phrase did he use?

  • I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

  • This is a very common phrase in English for many situations, but here Gustavo uses it to indicate he didn't understand something.

  • Now you try! Say the line after Henry speaks. I'm sorry.

  • I'm Henry Eddins.

  • I'm sorry

  • Because Gustavo did not understand something, he asked Henry to repeat what he said. To

  • do this, what polite question did he use? Can you say that again, please?

  • Can you say that again, please?

  • In response, English speakers will usually repeat what they have said, and will use the same words.

  • Now you try! Ask the question after Gustavo says "I'm sorry."

  • I'm sorry

  • Can you say that again, please? Gustavo also wanted Henry to speak more slowly.

  • To do this, what does he ask? A bit slowly?

  • A bit slowly? This is not a complete sentence, but has a

  • clear meaning when used after "Can you say that again, please?" In response English speakers

  • will slow their speech down. Now you try! Say the phrase after Gustavo

  • says "Can you say that again, please?"

  • A bit slowly?

  • After Gustavo said Henry's name, Henry confirmed he said it correctly. How did he do that?

  • That's it. That's it.

  • This is like saying, "That's correct," but since the situation was friendly, "That's

  • it" sounded more natural. Now you try! Say the phrase after Gustavo

  • says Henry's name correctly.

  • Henry Eddins.

  • That's it.

  • Now, the lesson focus. Here's how to introduce yourself. Ready?

  • Do you remember how Gustavo introduced himself? Hi! How do you do? I'm Gustavo.

  • When Gustavo introduced himself, he started with "Hi!" and then used a set phrase

  • How do you do? How do you do?

  • This is a polite expression people often use with an introduction. It sounds like a question,

  • but it has no particular meaning, and there's no expectation the other person will try to answer it.

  • Next, he says

  • I'm Gustavo. The first part of this sentence is a contraction

  • of two words, "I" and "am." The "am" here functions like an equals sign in math.

  • I'm

  • The next word in the sentence is a name. Gustavo.

  • Together it's I'm Gustavo.

  • The structure of the pattern is Hi! How do you do? I'm

  • PLUS your name

  • Now you try! Imagine your name is John. Say "Hi! How do you do? I'm John."

  • Hi! How do you do? I'm John. Now, imagine your name is Aiko. Say "Hi! How

  • do you do? I'm Aiko."

  • Hi! How do you do? I'm Aiko.

  • Now use your own name.

  • Ok, there are two additional things you need to know.

  • First, there's a shortcut for giving your name.

  • Just drop the "I'm" from the final sentence of the self-introduction.

  • For example, if Gustavo just said Hi! How do you do? Gustavo.

  • Henry would have understood it was his name. This would be especially clear if Gustavo

  • extended his hand for a handshake while saying this.

  • In very casual situations you can even drop the "Hi! and the "How do you do?" All that

  • is left would be your name. The second thing you need to know is, you

  • can use "I'm" with just the first name, or your first name and last name together.

  • I'm Henry Eddins. Eddins is Henry's family name.

  • Using both your first name and your last name is a little more formal.

  • It also gives you less privacy. For example, if people know both your first and last name,

  • they can find you on the Internet more easily. So it may be MORE common for strangers to

  • say just their first name than people meeting in a more friendly environment.

  • Next, you'll learn how to tell people to call you by a nickname, just like Henry did in the scene

  • But please call me Hank.

  • But please call me Hank. The first word in the sentence is

  • But This word is not necessary, but it makes the

  • transition to the rest of the sentence smoother. Henry uses this to introduce a new piece of

  • information. And this information changes something about

  • what he said before. "But" makes this clear. The next word introduces a polite request.

  • Please Please

  • Next is a request to use a certain name. call

  • call After this is the word

  • me me

  • Last is a common nickname for men named Henry. Hank

  • Hank Please call me Hank.

  • The sentence structure is Please call me

  • plus your nick name

  • Now you try! Imagine your nickname is Matt. Say "Please call me Matt."

  • Please call me Matt Now, imagine your nickname is Lulu.

  • Say "Please call me Lulu."

  • Please, call me Lulu.

  • Now use your own nickname. Say "please call me" and then use your nickname.

  • Finally, when you meet someone for the first time, it's polite to say a set phrase at the end

  • Nice to meet you.

  • Nice to meet you.

  • Usually, both people will say this or something similar to it.

  • Now you try.

  • Nice to meet you.

  • Now it's time to practice your new ability.

  • Let's practice! This is your chance to to introduce yourself.

  • Try to remember what you learned and by speaking aloud!

  • It's your first day in the U.S., and you're meeting your new neighbor. Ready? Here we go.

  • What's the first thing you say to someone you've just met?

  • Hi! How do you do? How do you tell someone your name?

  • I'm [NAME] I'm Henry Eddins.

  • How do you tell someone your nickname?

  • Please call me [Your nickname]

  • Please call me Hank.

  • What's the last thing you say to someone you've just met?

  • Nice to meet you.

  • Great job! You've just introduced yourself! You'll follow this same pattern many times,

  • so be sure to practice it.

  • Well done! Now, watch the scene one more time. After that,

  • go and practice with all your American friendsor with us in the comments!

  • Bye.

  • Excuse me. Sorry about that!

  • Hi! How do you do? I'm Gustavo.

  • Nice to meet you, Gustavo. I'm Henry Eddins.

  • I'm sorry. Can you say that again, please?

  • A bit slowly? Henry Eddins.

  • Henry Eddins. That's it. But please call me Hank.

  • Hank. Nice to meet you.

Imagine you're on a plane. There's someone next to you. What do you say?
