Personal introductions in English, Museum of Knowledge tips

English language courses focusing on Personal introductions will be included as one of the official Museum of Knowledge tips for those who wish to perfect greetings whether these are formal or informal. English language courses will include those tailored towards students who wish to learn how they can personally introduce themselves in English. The Museum of Knowledge team focuses on language learning for advanced business speakers, however the team will soon be addressing the intermediate language learning gap in the market for those who wish to develop their social skills

Personal introductions differ according to the audience with whom the student communicates. Unlike French, Spanish or Italian, there are no general differentials in English and neither are there specific formal and informal ways of communicating the word ‘you’ as there is in French (‘tu’ and ‘vous’ for example).

Students who wish to learn English must first determine whether the personal introduction they are using is formal or informal and then use the relevant phrases that pertain to that. For example, a formal introduction may commence with, “Good morning,” “May I introduce myself?” and “I am delighted/ pleased to meet you, please take a seat.”

Personal introductions in English, in absence of formal and informal subject pronouns can only be differentiated through vocabulary, structured sentences and tones relating to specific scenarios. It is important to note also that the plural and singular form of the word ‘you’ is written differently in other languages such as French, Spanish and Italian but in English despite the difference in meaning, the spelling of the word ‘you’ is written in exactly the same way.

Museum of Knowledge tips: How to become fluent in English

Museum of Knowledge students often ask us how they can become fluent in English. Are there any special tricks they can adopt to learn English more quickly than their counterparts? The truth is, becoming fluent in English requires a number of skills. Taking into consideration that learning a language requires a foundation of knowledge across four key disciplines, reading, writing, listening and speaking, students will need to factor this into their study timeline.

Reading– Depending on the student’s level, reading exercises can range from books, newspapers, magazines and website content. All of these disciplines can give students a comprehensive understanding of the English language, enable them to gain essential skills, grasp essential vocabulary and perfect sentence structure.

Writing- Many students who wish to learn English may find writing to be one of their biggest challenges. The key to writing good English is accuracy and grammar. Verb conjugation skills are also essential. It is much more difficult to hide a mistake when writing in English, and the best way to ensure that mistakes are not made is by taking regular spelling tests, understanding sentence construction, syntax and grammar.

Listening- Gaining good listening techniques is also critical for students who wish to become fluent in English. Of course there are many accents that students will have to be exposed to in order to really perfect their skills and be able to understand spoken English. Across the UK for example the South East, North East and North West have very distinct accents. Then of course, even wider than this we consider other accents found in the United States of America, Australia and New Zealand.

Speaking- To be truly fluent in English, being able to master verbal communication is imperative. Once again accents play a strong part in this and depending on where the student has been taught will affect the accent used when speaking. Developing strong verbal skills in English requires students to express themselves with subtle tones and pronunciation that identifies the English language.
