How to introduce yourself in Japanese

Hi all,

This is a revisit of the post that i did a few years ago.
——————————————————————-
In lesson 1, i’ll be sharing how can we do a self introduction in a humble manner. (^_^)
This is how it goes.

はじめまして (Ha-ji-me-ma-shi-te / How do you do?)
_____(your name) と申します (__________ to mou-shi-masu / I am called __________)
よろしく おねがいいたします。 (Yo-ro-shi-ku o-ne-gai-ita-shi-masu / Please take care of me)

E.g

はじめまして (Ha-ji-me-ma-shi-te)
ケン と申します (Ken to mou-shi-masu)
よろしく おねがいいたします。 (Yo-ro-shi-ku o-ne-gai-ita-shi-masu)

If you watch youtube videos from Japanesepod101, etc, you would notice that
they will tell you to say 「わたしは________です」 (watashi wa _______ desu) in the second line,
「どうぞ よろしく」 (douzo yoroshiku) in the third line.

What i am teaching here is the humble way of introducing yourself in Japanese.
i feel it will impress the person that you are speaking to when you are able to use this way of introducing yourself.
Do feel free to send your recording of your voices to me and i’ll be glad to correct you if needed.

Have a good day!
Can
