We’ll get back to you regarding your question.
I noticed that in the “Hello, nice to meet you” phrase, “はじめまして” comes first, and then “こんにちは”. Is it more common to say it in this order in Japan?
Thank you for the comment and sorry for replying late.
1) An original form of “manande” is a verb “manabu” and it means “to learn”.
2) In that case, why don’t you say “Shusshin wa Sukanjinabia de, ima wa nihon ni sunde imasu.” which means “I was born in Scandinavia and live in Japan now.”
3) I think those two have the same meaning.
4) They can say just “~~ desu.” like “Isha(=doctor) desu.”.
Hope this helps you😄

Hi. I have four questions for you, please:
1) What does manande mean? I thought it was “narande imasu” ???
2) If I have lived in Japan for twenty years, it feels quite awkward to say I am from anywhere other than here in Japan. What would I say in that case? If I say I am from the place I was born, people automatically suppose I just got off the boat or am here on a short term visa. If I don’t feel any sense of belonging or identity to the place I was born but do identify with a particular culture because of my ancestry or beliefs (Scandinavian, in my case), how would I introduce that?
3) I noticed “Kyoshi o shite imasu” for wanting to say “I am a teacher”. I thought you would say “Kyoshi desu”. What is the difference?
4) What do folks who work at higher professional levels (e.g. doctors, professors) usually include in their introductions?
Please help. Thanks! CKJ
