Hi, this is Bill.

And right now, I’m just going to talk to you about a speaking problem that I’ve seen many of my students make…many times.


Now, two phrases here.

Now, the first one is “Nice to meet you.”

That’s any easy phrase that many Korean people know.

But I just want to remind you, we use “Nice to meet you,” when you meet a new person for the first time.


Something like “Hello, my name is John.”

“Hello, my name is Tom.”

“Nice to meet you.”

“Nice to meet you, too.”

You tell someone your name.

They tell you their name.

“Nice to meet you.”

Because you learned each others name.

That’s when you say, “Nice to meet you.”

Now, you need to remember, that you only say “Nice to meet you” the first time you meet that person.


If you see them again, two days later, don’t say, “Hi, nice to meet you.”

Because it’s not your first meeting anymore.


Some of my students..I’ve been teaching them for over a month right now, but I still walk into the classroom and they’re like “Bill, nice to meet you.”

And I just think to myself, “You see me every day..and we..we’ve met each othera long time ago.”

No, if it’s not the first time you’re meeting someone, if it’s someone you’re seeing again….

“Nice to see you.”


It’s not “Nice to meet you”.

You don’t say “Nice to meet you” to your friends who you see many times.


If you see your friends on the weekend…

“Nice to see you.”

Because, “Nice to meet you”, you only get to do that once.

That’s the first time you meet a new person.

For your friends and other people…always…”Nice to see you.”


I hope you can remember the difference.

I hope this is helpful.

And I hope you don’t say “Nice to meet you,” to people you met a long time ago.

Alright, see you next video.
