Speaking Situations: Introducing Yourself

Note: It is not necessary for students to have "English names". However, sometimes

students choose to adopt English names for personal reasons (or simply for class use).

Teachers should make the effort to address students in the way the students prefer,

even if the pronunciation of non-English names is somewhat difficult.
