Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! When your Japanese friends introduce you to their other friends from Japan, most of them have been able to speak in your native language. However, today you met someone who speaks only Japanese. The person greets you politely and looks expectantly at you, awaiting your response. You look to your friend, who prompts you to bow and repeat after him in Japanese, but you don't want to rely on your friend's translation skills throughout your travels. To avoid further awkwardness, you decide to master the art of Japanese self-introduction! In this lesson, you will learn how to greet someone for the first time and say your name in Japanese. In the conversation, two strangers meet, and from them you will learn how to use formal Japanese to introduce yourself.
