Unit 3. Introducing People

Just as with greetings, the language of introduction is different in different situations, too.

In the official situations you should use the following expres­sions:

May I Introduce...

Let me Introduce...

Allow me to introduce ...

May I present...

Mrs. Johnson, may I introduce Mr. Brown? Mr. Brown -Mrs. Johnson.

But it's not always necessary to repeat the names. The usual re­spond to an introduction is How do you do? which is a sort of greet­ing. In reply the other person says How do you do?, e.g.

Host: Mr. Brown, let me introduce you to Mr. White. He's an expert of finance.

Mr. Brown: How do you do?

Mr. White: How do you do?

Mr. Brown: Pleased to meet you.

Mr. White: So am I.

In formal situations English people sometimes shake hands when introduced but do not bow.

Less formal alternatives to introducing are:

I want you to meet ...

Meet (my)...

This is ...

The usual response to it is "Hallo!".
