Introduce yourself and ask for someone’s name. The informal and most common way is using Ciao.
Mi chiamo… Hello. My name is… followed by your name.
How do you ask And yours? E tu? You’ve already seen this phrase and in this case it is best
translated in English as And yours?, although it literally means And you?
The other person will usually answer Mi chiamo… My name is… followed by their name. They
can then add Piacere Pleased to meet you This is the informal way.
Sometimes you can hear a longer version Piacere di conoscerti. Pleased to meet you. literally
meaning Pleased to meet you. Piacere means pleased conoscerti means to meet you.
The other person will usually answer Piacere Pleased to meet you. This is the informal way.
When talking to older people or superiors use Salve. Mi chiamo… Hello. My name is… Usually
saying both name and surname. You can also use other greetings Buon giorno. Mi chiamo…
Buona sera. Mi chiamo…
To ask the person And yours? formal, use E Lei? Also in this case you know it literally means And
you?
The other person will probably answer Mi chiamo… Usually saying both name and surname. Just
as you saw before, meaning My name is…
They might add Piacere di conoscerLa Pleased to meet you formal. This is exactly like Piacere di
conoscerti Only the last part changes. From conoscerti to conoscerLa. From ti to La.
The other person will usually answer Piacere di conoscerLa. Pleased to meet you formal. Since
Italians don’t like being too formal you can just hear Piacere as a closing answer.
