UNIT 2 Greetings, acquaintance, introducing.
Grammar : The Pronoun
Introducing people
There are many various rules of introduction. It's necessary to know them. Remember the following rules of introduction:
1)introduce man to woman;
2)introduce young people to older ones;
3)introduce old friend to newcomers;
4)introduce a young girl to a married woman.
The most simple form of introduction is the pronouncing of the two names:
Man to Man
"Mr. Walters, Mr. Jordan"
"Mr. Walters, would you meet Mr. Jordan"
Man to Woman
"Miss Blake, Mr. Jordan"
"Miss Blake, this is Jack Jordan"
"Miss Blake, would you meet my assistant Jack Jordan".
Use such responses to introduction: "How do you do", it's greeting and not a question. Use " I am glad to meet you", " Happy to meet you" or just" Hello" as a response to an introduction. It is very good to add the name of the person introduced:" I am very happy to meet you, Mr. White" or " (I am) glad to see you Mr. Blake".
Always stand when introduced, ladies may remain seated.
Привітання (Greetings).

It′s interesting to know...

Greeting people in a foreign language is not so simple as it may seem. Tо express greetings, say " Hello!" to a friend, "How do you do" when induced (it is very formal), "Good morning!", "Good afternoon!, and "Good evening" on coming to see or leaving people.
Do not say "Good day!" This expression is quite common in Ukrainian, Russian, French or German, but not so common in English, it is used only sometimes by country people instead of "Goodbye." To answer greetings use: "Hello!", "Good morning!", "Good afternoon!", "Good evening!"
When taking leave, just say: "Goodbye!", "Good morning!", ″Good afternoon!", "Good evening!". Among friends common parting words are "Bye — bye", "So long", "Cheerio". "Good night" is the same as the Ukrainian "На добраніч!". It is not a greeting.
Say "Good morning" from 12 o'clock midnight (p. m.) till 12 o'clock midday (a. m.); a. m. is a short form for the Latin words "ante meridiem", meaning "before noon". The hours from midnight till midday are a. m..
The hours from midday till midnight are p. m.; p. m. is a short form for the Latin words "post meridiem", meaning "after noon". Say "Good afternoon" from 12 o'clock a. m. till 6 o'clock p. m.. Say "Good evening" from 6 o'clock p. m..
