Introducing yourself

Please note: There is a short delay when playing the audio clips.

When you meet someone, you might want to tell them about yourself and ask about them. Here are some questions you might ask and some answers you might give.

Je m’appelle ... - My name is ...

Comment tu t'appelles? - What’s your name?

Où habites-tu? - Where do you live?

J’habite en ... - I live in …

... Angleterre - ... England

... Ecosse - ... Scotland

... Irlande - ... Ireland

J’habite au Pays de Galles. - I live in Wales.

Here are a couple of useful phrases you might need if the speaker talks too fast or you don’t catch what they say!

Je ne comprends pas. - I don't understand.

Répétez, s'il vous plaît. - Repeat that, please.

Plus lentement, s'il vous plaît. - Slower, please.
