Introduction Manners

1 Good manners are important in all countries, but ways of expressing good manners are different from country to country. Moreover, manners are important to happy relations among people, and knowing the proper manners is necessary in establishing relationship with others. Naturally, it is necessary for you to learn the introduction manners in English speaking countries.

Unit2 Text B

介绍的礼节 讲究良好的礼节在各个国家都很重要,但礼节的表达方式却因国 家的不同而各不相同。而且讲究礼节对于建立人与人之间良好的关系 至关重要。因此你有必要学习讲英语国家有关介绍方面的礼节。

Introduction Manners

Tran

2 *The first rule is to remember the names of everyone you’re being introduced to. The most important part of an introduction is the other person’s name, not your name. 3 *When you introduce two people to each other, the person whose name you mention first is the more important one; lower status people are always introduced to higher status people.

Unit2 Text B

status n. ... to第一条规则就是要记住介绍给你认识的每个人的名字。介绍过程 remember the names of everyone you’re being introduced to.是 when引出一个时间状语从句,主句为两个并列句。 the official legal position or condition of a 后接省略who/whom引导的 person, group, country, 一个动词不定式短语作it的表语;everyone 中最重要的是对方的名字,而不是你的名字。 etc 定语从句。 当你介绍两个人相互认识时,你首先要提到比较重要的那个人;总 ▲He is very aware of his status. 是把地位低的人介绍给地位高的人。 ▲What’s her official status in her company﹖

Introduction Manners

Tran

A title does not automatically confer status. 4 * If you are still confused , use this tip as a way to remember whose name goes first: Mr. CEO, I’d like you to meet Mr. Intern. 5 There are many rules about who is supposed to be introduced to whom. The simplified rules are as follows.
