Self Introduction in Japanese Language


Lesson 1

(Jikoshoukaiis the Japanese word for "self-introduction." , and they’re one of the first things you should study after you learned greetings (aisatsu), right after learning hiragana and katakana.." In theory, this is similar to how you would introduce yourself in your own culture. Say your name, age, location and tell a little about yourself. But in Japan, there are cultural differences and set procedures you should stick to. You only get one first impression, so it's important to learn how to do it right.
The word jikoshoukai, it is use to introduce yourself when you first meet someone or when you attend your first class in school. Greetings are used in everyday life. This are the first few words you can use to introducing yourself. Ohayougozaimasu which means "Good Morning" , konnichiwa which means "Good Afternoon", and konbanwa which means "Good evening". In Japan country they have time to greet Ohayougozaimasu it is 7’oclock in the morning until 10:00 am. Konnichiwa it is 10’oclock in the morning until 5:00 pm and Konbanwa it is 6’oclock onwards in the evening. Next is “hajimemashite” in English “nice to meet you” to the person whom you meet for the first time. And then say your full name, nick name, age and status if you are single just say “dokushin”, married “Kekkonshite imasu” and if not married Kekkonshite imasen. Your nationality if you are a Filipino and your current address that you live.And then your status if you are employee or students and if your employed says what is your occupation, at the end Douzo yoroshiku onegaishimasu it means Please treat me well or Please be nice to me and say Doumo arigatou gozaimasu. 
I gave you an examples in Jikoshoukai.
