How to Introduce Yourself in English

Introductions are one of the first things students need to learn to do in a new language.

That’s why dialogues that show possible variations (such as the free, printable dialogue below) are great—students can see other ways of saying the target phrase and repeat the basic conversation several times without getting bored.
