  1. Min Min, Love the site. Can you please tell me if there is any correct formal way to introduce ones self within the Chinese Culture. Say you would be at a Rotary Style or a class, meeting for the first time and comes the time to introduce ones self to the members/class of who you are , what you do, your family detail and general information ie good Morning, my name is … my job is…. I live in… my hobbies are and etc. It hard to believe but it happens you freeze to know what to say. If there is a format I could create a script to learn and rattle it off when asked.

    1. Hi stevemillarband,

      I google the keyword “自我介绍” and I found this may what you are looking for:

      Just like English, you can start self-introduction with greetings, like 大家好,早上好, and some brief intro about yourself:


      Good morning/afternoon/evening, my name is ……
      I am…… years old. I was born in…… province/Beijing, northeast/southeast/southwest…… of china, and I am currently a freshman(大一新生)/sophomore(大二学生)/junior(大三学生)/senior(大四学生) student at Capital Institute of Physical Education.

      After that, you can proceed with what you want to tell others about yourself.
