面對外國朋友,簡單問好之後再來呢?是深情相望,希望對方能接受到您的眉目傳情?還是傻笑,因為笑容是全世界通用的語言?當然都不是啦!今天羅傑老師要分享的英文口說主題是『自我介紹』!

這說來簡單,做起來難。因為讓人印象深刻的自我介紹其實不容易。如果您希望能讓對方留下印象,最少要把握幾個重點,『簡短』,『關鍵字』與『特點』。千萬不要流水帳,把您的學歷與祖宗八代都報出來,那可是最不合格的自我介紹。

建議可以把握FORM的方式來介紹。

 

F:family

 F即 Family, 家庭背景與故鄉,本人建議,家庭的部份簡單帶過,重點可以放在自己的家鄉,因為對方沒去過,可以介紹一下自己家鄉讓自己最難忘的部份,既可讓對方了解自己與自己的家鄉,如果您能講到對方想去旅遊,那就真的太棒了。以下是範例與解說。

Hi, My name is Roger. I live in a family of five, including my parents, my two siblings and I. I am from the Taoyuan city in Taiwan. I grew up and went to college in this city. What I love about my hometown is its diversity and convenient traffic. In this city, there are many foreigners walking on the street and you can find any kind of foreign food, including American food, Japanese food, even French cuisine. Also, Taoyuan has railroad, high speed railroad, international airport, and even MRT so the the traffic is really convenient! It only takes less than 1 hour to travel to Taipei or Hsin-Chu, or less than two hours to central Taiwan. Although it’s a modern city, some traditional parts are the features of this city. It’s the temple parade that makes this city more colorful. So if you want to visit a city in Taiwan with diversity and convenient traffic, you have to put Taoyuan on your list.  

解析:

  • I live in a family of five. 我家有五口人的意思,數字可以自己增減

  • sibling :手足

  • be from (地點) 我來自…

  • diversity : 多樣性

  • cuisine:料理

  • MRT : Mass Rapid Transit 捷運

  • temple parade :廟會遊行

  • put sth on your list 把xx 列在清單上,這裡的意思是把城市列為到訪地點。

 

 

O :Occupation

如果對方跟您是工作上的關係,建議可以把重點放在O , Occupation您的工作,例如您為何選擇這份工作,又從中學得什麼,或是工作上印象最深的故事。

I have been worked as a technical manual writer for six years. The most interesting thing about my job is I can play the latest products and write instruction for users. Also, using my English and writing skills to serve others is the thing I love.  There is only one thing I don't like is sitting too long, which is not very good for health and feel like a plant. Beside that, I like this job very much because I can use my language and logical thinking abilities to do my job.

解析

  • have been worked for (time) 已經工作多久時間,現在完成式。這比講I am a xxx要更有效率,因為同時提供工作性質與時間長短。

  • The most interesting thing : 最有趣的事

  • feel like 感覺像...…

工作的正反面都提一下,可以避免炫耀感。畢竟工作一定有正反面,可以自我解嘲一下,幽自己一默。本人提到因為坐著時間太長,感覺自己像植物。最後可以簡單總結,自己喜愛這份工作的原因。

 

R:recreation

當然,R, recreation 嗜好,也是一個很好自我介紹的重點,或許對方與您有相同嗜好,如運動與音樂等等,這可以拉近距離,或者您有什麼特殊專長也可以當作自我介紹的特點,例如烹調與手工等等。這邊解釋一下hobby與interest 有什麼不同。 hobby是嗜好,個人會定時定點做的一些活動,而interest 是興趣,想到才做。譬如說,每週固定時間參加固定運動,如籃球,羽球等,甚至加入社團可以說是嗜好hobby,但是偶而為之就只能說是興趣interest。再舉一個例子,英語演講是我的嗜好,因為本人固定參加社團,但是看電影對我就是一種興趣,因為不是常常看。以下是英文範例,

 My hobby is  English public speaking, and I have joined the toastmaster club for more than ten years. I join the meeting every 1st and 3rd Friday night to sharpen my language and speaking skills. By joining the toastmaster club, I improved my English and communication skills and made a lot of friends. My interests are reading, gaming, and watching movie.

 

M:message

 M, message, 到最後一步,如果兩人相談甚歡,您想與對方留下連絡方式。可以怎麼說?以下用對話說明。

A: It was so nice to talk to you. You really know a lot about movies.

B: Me too! You are the expert of movie. I would like to discuss some interesting movies with you later. Can you friend me?

A: Of course, what's your facebook (whatapp, line, etc...) ID?

 這裡要說明的是,加好友就用friend當動詞即可,無論是哪種社交媒體都可以。

簡單的說,自我介紹其實不難,看對象,其實不一定要全部用上,但平時多練習遇到外國朋友才不會吞吞吐吐喔^_^
