Mission 6: "What's your name?"
Learn how to introduce yourself to people. You can simulate conversations by clicking on a character bubble and taking the part of A or B.
A: Hola, soy Erick. ¿Cómo te llamas?
B: Me llamo Elliott. Encantado.
A: ¡Mucho gusto!
¿Cómo te llamas? - This is the standard way of asking, "What's your name?" Remember the double "ll" on "llamas" is pronounced like a "y" (as in "yamas"). Another way to ask this question is "¿Cuál es tu nombre?". If someone asks you this way, you can respond the same way as above ("Me llamo ~") or you can say "Mi nombre es ~ " ("My name is ~").
Me llamo _____. - put your name in the blank to introduce yourself. The shorter way of telling someone your name is to use "Soy ______." The difference is slight, kind of like the difference between "My name is Elliott." and "I'm Elliott."
Encantado/Encantada - This phrase literally means “delighted”, but you can think of it like “Pleasure to meet you.”“Mucho gusto” is used by both ladies and men, but “encantada/encatado” is gender-dependent. If you’re a lady, you say, Encatada with an “a”. If you’re a gentleman, you use Encantado with an “o”.
¡Mucho gusto! - This is another way of saying "Nice to meet you". It is used by both ladies and men.
