Let’s practise some useful expressions when introducing people or meeting people again.

Listen and read the following dialogue: 

Mark: Hi. I’m Mark Ryder.

Nicole: Ah, you’re the new marketing director.

Mark: That’s right.

Nicole: I’m Nicole Delacroix. I’m Allie’s personal assistant. Welcome to Paris!

Mark: Thank you.

Nicole: I’ll just tell Allie you’re here. Allie? Mark Ryder’s here. OK. You’re from San Francisco, aren’t you?

Mark: Yes, I am.

Allie: Hello, Mark.

Mark: Allie, It’s good to see you again. How are you?

Allie: Very well. Did you have a good journey?

Mark: Yes, fine, no problems.

Allie: Let me introduce you to the team. You’ve met Nicole, my personal assistant?

Mark: Yes, we’ve said hello.

Allie: This is Jacques Lemaître, our PR director.

Jacques: How do you do?

Mark: Mark Ryder. How do you do?

Allie: And this is Ben Watts, our designer.

Ben: Hi, Mark.

Mark: Great to meet you, Ben.

Ben: We’ve heard a lot about you.

Mark: Really? All good, I hope.

Allie: OK. Shall we go to my office?

Now practise repeating the red phrases. Copy the rhythm.
