A Good Way to Start a Conversation
 
你好 ( nǐhǎo ) is the universal word for "hello" in Chinese. If you are speaking to an older
person, or in a formal setting, you can use the more formal version: 您好 ( nínhǎo). 认识
(rènshi ) means "to know" or "to be familiar with." However in some contexts, as in this
lesson's dialogue, 认识 ( rènshi ) also can be used for a first meeting, to say that you are happy
to "meet" or "know" a person.
 
Grammar Points
The Focus of This Lesson is Chinese Self-Introductions
你好 , 我叫王国易。
Nǐhǎo, wǒ jiào Wáng Guóyì.
"Hello, I'm Wang Guoyi."
 
你好
(nǐhǎo )
"Hello" in Chinese is made up of two words: 你, meaning "you" and '好', meaning "good."  On
very formal meetings, you can replace the 你( nǐ) with the formal term for "you," which is 您
(nín).

(jiào)
The verb 叫 (jiào) means "to call". So to introduce yourself, you are simply saying, "I'm called
______."
If you would like to ask someone their name, you can say:
你叫什么名字?
Nǐ jiào shénme míngzi?
 "What is your name?"
The response:
我叫李珍 , 很高兴 认识 你。
Wǒ jiào Lǐ Zhēn, hěn gāoxìng rènshi nǐ.
 "I'm Li Zhen, nice to meet you."
我也是。

Wǒ yě shì.
 "Likewise."
 
认识
(rènshi )
The verb 认识 ( rènshi ) means "to know" or "to be familiar with," however, in the context of
the phrase 很高兴认识你。( Hěn gāoxìng rènshi nǐ .) the implication is that of "to meet," since
this meeting signifies a making of one's acquaintance, and thus, thereafter, they will "know"
each other. 
我也是。
Wǒ yě shì.
This phrase literally means "I also am." In this dialogue, it is said in response to the
statement "Nice to meet you" to express a corresponding feeling.
 
Names in Chinese
 
Names in Chinese are generally made up of either two or three characters. The surname is
one character, and is given first, followed by the given name or names. For example:
王国易
Wáng Guóyì
 
李珍
Lǐ Zhēn
 
Sometimes, in more formal settings, a person will simply as for a person's surname. They
will do this by asking:
您 贵 姓 ?
Nǐn guì xìng?
 "Your surname is?"
To which one would respond:
我姓 _______.
Wǒ xìng _______.
 "My surname is ________."
