1 ENGLISH CONVERSATION FOR YOUR LIFE BY NARONGRITH MINGJAREON, PORNTIP WIRIYAPOTIKARN

2 1 SAMPLE WAYS TO INTRODUCE YOURSELF Introducing yourself to Stanley can be tricky because what you say depends entirely on the context. You would introduce yourself differently depending on what you were addressing an audience before you give a speech, meeting someone at a networking event, or just starting a conver-

3 sation with a new person at a party. If you want to know how to introduce yourself in a way that is appropriate and makes people like and remember you. just follow these steps. First, introduce yourself:. Hello, my name is Peter Browns. Next, give a little info about yourself or break the ice:. That s a great tie. Where did you get it?. I m originally from New York, but I just moved here a week ago. Are you from around here?. Say, where s the best place to grab some hamburgers?.. Hey, how are you? I m Mary. My name s Peter. What s yours? Listen to their response, and keep the conversation going:. Oh, you got that tie from Lotus? They ve really improved their stores lately. 2

4 . So you re originally from England. Do you ski?. Burger King s hamburger eh? What s your favorite dish there? Close the conversation:. It has been a pleasure meeting you. I look forward to seeing you again.. Sounds like you know a lot about this city. Maybe you could show me around sometime?. Well, if you re ever having hamburger, let me know and we can go to lunch. example of way to introduce yourself 3

5 2 ORDERING FOOD & DRINKS One of the first things to do in English is ordering food when you go to a restaurant. There are basic forms and questions, as well food vocabulary that you can use in places where people speak English. Ordering food is much easier than cooking it yourself. It sometimes makes for a good night out too. Not quite sure on how to go about ordering food? Here's a few quick tips

6 1. FIND A SEAT It's probably a better idea to find a seat before you get your food. This is because if all the seats are full after you've collected your food, you're going to have to either eat standing up or walk around looking for a seat for quite some time. Also, some restaurants send waiters to your table, so it's required that you find a seat 2. LOOK AT THE MENU The menu should already be on your table but if it's not, or there are not enough menus for everyone, ask a member of staff for one. The menu includes everything that the restaurant sells and also states their prices. Have a look and see if anything interests you then decide what you're going to buy. 3. CALL THE WAITER OVER This can be done by simply getting a passing waiter's attention or waiting until they come to you. Once they arrive, tell them what you'd like to eat. Make sure that they've written down the correct foods so you don't end up with something that you didn't want. 5

7 4. WAIT FOR YOUR FOOD At some restaurants, they cook the food from scratch as soon as they get your order. This means that it might take some time for your food to get to you. Just be patient, your food should arrive in under half an hour. If it hasn't arrived, tell someone. They may have forgotten about your order, or it might just be a busy day. 5. ENJOY EXAMPLE A: May I get you anything to drink? B: Yes, please. May I get a glass of lemonade? A: Would you like an appetizer? B: May I get an order of barbeque wings? A: Sure, would you like anything else? 6

8 B: That'll be fine for now, thank you. A: Tell me when you want to order the rest of your food. B: Excuse me. I'm ready to order. A: What would you like? B: Let me have the baby-back ribs. A: Sure, will there be anything else that I can get you? B: That will be it for now. Example way to ordering food and drink 7

9 3 TELEPHONING When making a formal call, three rules should influence your choice of words: Be brief. Do not waste the receiver's time. Be clear. Explain the background and purpose of your call. Be polite. Recognize the receiver's point of view.
