*補足:自己紹介*
セミナー会場で、休憩時間に参加者の方とお話をした際、「英語で自己紹介くらいはできるようになりたい」と言われていたのをふと思い出しました。セミナーの中で「自己紹介」について触れる機会がありませんでしたので、ここでサンプル英文を3つ紹介します。音声付きです。是非、参考にしてください。

(1) 授業で自己紹介



Hi. My name is Mieko Takahashi. I'm from Tokyo, Japan. It rains a lot in Tokyo, so I'm really happy to be here in sunny southern California. In fact, that's the main reason I chose to study in California to get away from the rain! Just kidding. The real reason is that I plan to study American literature, and I figured the best place to do that was in America. Reading is one of my main hobbies, along with bicycling and going to movies. I have two brothers and one sister who live with my parents in Tokyo. I've met a few of you already and I'm looking forward to meeting all of you. There're still a lot of things I don't know about this country, so I'll probably be asking you a lot of questions. Thank you.

(2) 授業で自己紹介



Hello, everyone. My name is Takehiko Murayama. I'm from Nagoya, Japan. I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself. I've spent most of my life in Nagoya, which is a large city in central Japan. It's the third largest city in Japan, after Tokyo and Osaka. I have a brother in high school and a sister in junior high. I started studying English in the seventh grade and I always hoped that I could come to America to study someday. My major is chemical engineering and I chose this university because of its excellent engineering program. In my spare time I like to play tennis and golf. Thank you.

(3) レセプションで自己紹介



Well, someone just handed me the microphone. That means it's my turn to introduce myself. My name is Kay Tamura. I'm from Tokyo, Japan, originally. Like most of you, I live here in Boston now. I work as an engineer at a local firm. I guess that's about it. I look forward to getting to know you all.
