Hi, this is Bill.
And, uhh… right now, I’m going to explain to you about a speaking problem that I have seen and heard…far too many times since I came to Korea.
Now, it’s a very easy phrase.
The simple phrase, “Nice to meet you.”
Ya, you probably know it.
You’ve probably said it.
But the problem is, so many Korean people don’t understand ‘when’ to really use the phrase, “Nice to meet you”…
…because when you ‘meet’ somebody knew, that means you told them your name…
…they told you their name.
Many times I’m just walking down the street…
You know, I’m shopping or soemthing, and then a Korean person says, “Hi, nice to meet you.”
And I think….’I don’t know your name.’
‘I didn’t tell you my name.’
We didn’t meet.
How can it be “nice”?
So, if you look at the board, right here.
Here I am Bill.
“Nice to meet you.”
I…there’s no “Hi, my name is Bill.”
“My name is Han. Nice to meet you”
No, there’ not that.
Just Bill says “Hi”.
Korean person say “Nice to meet you.”
But we didn’t meet each other.
You don’t know my name.
I don’t know your name.
Don’t be that guy.
The proper way to do this..now.
Here’s a sample dialogue, where you use the easy phrase “Nice to meet you,” properly.
It goes like this.
Bill, that’s me.
Bill says, “Hi.”
And then Korean person says, “Hello, my name is Han.”
“My name is Bill.”
Maybe we shake hands.
“Nice to meet you.”
Because you did meet me.
And then if there’s one more, I say, “Nice to meet you, too.”
Because you met me.
I met you.
You said your name.
I said my name.
If you didn’t learn the new persons name, and you didn’t tell them yours, you didn’t meet them, so it can’t be “Nice to meet you.”
Exchange names, then “Nice to meet you.”
Don’t just “hi, nice to meet you.”
Because you didn’t meet me, yet.
I hope you can remember that.
And I hope it helps you.
See you next video.
