Greetings, English Learners. During Formal Introductions, we normally introduce whoever we are together with, with the persons we meet and discuss with. This way, all the people feel welcome and connected to our discussion, and no one feels left out.

Imagine you’re at a university with your sister and you meet your English professor. How would you introduce your sister to your professor? How would you introduce your professor to your sister?
Imagine you bring your parents to your job for the first time and you meet your boss. How would you introduce your parents to your boss? How would you introduce your boss to your parents?
It is of key importance that we introduce our companions with people we meet and discuss with. It is the polite thing to do.
