Now that we know how to introduce ourselves, and we know about です、we can talk about ourselves a little more. Let's have a simple conversation with someone new.


So let's break this down.


はじめまして。The polite greeting, nice to meet you.
わたしは 'I am.'
サリー Sally
です。polite sentence ending. 
よろしくおねがいします。Let's be kind to each other. 

And then the same again for Kai, カイ:はじめまして、サリーさん。わたしはカイです。よろしくおねがいします。

さん is a polite way to say Miss/Mr/Mrs/Ms. You must use it when meeting strangers, but you'd never use it on yourself!


イギリス means English. 
じん is something you add to a place, to make it 'English person.' So 'じん’ means person.
です polite sentence ending. 
か is basically the japanese version of a question mark. Add it to the end of a sentence to make it a question. 

カイ then agrees, by saying 'yes, I am english.'

So now, you can say that you are English! Yay!~
