Percakapan Perkenalan

Mr. Brown               :    good morning, Mr. Green. How are you?

Mr. Green                 :    Very well, thank you. How are you?

Mr. Brown               :    Fine, thanks. I don’t think you’ve met my secretary. This is Mr. Green. This is Miss Black.

Green and Black      :    How do you do?

Mr. Green                 :    you have a very nice office here.

Miss Black               :    Yes, it is nice, isn’t it? I like working here very much.

Kosa-kata:

How are you? – apa kabar?

You’ve – you have

Have met – pernah bertemu

Catatan:

Ungkapan “how are you?” digunakan untuk menanyakan kabar orang yang sudah kita kenal. Sedangkan ungkapan “how do you do” bias dikatakan sebagai persetujuan untuk saling mengenal, karena ungkapan ini hanya digunakan ketika kita berkenalan.

Demikian apa yang tertulis dalam buku “How to Say It” karya PHILIP BINHAM. Semoga bermanfaat.
