Introductions are really thoughtful. Especially in English conversation. Introductions will take place every time you meet a new person. It can be to anyone a boss, a friend, a family member or anyone. The way you introduce is important. This is the first impression that you create of a person which should be good from your side. When you introduce, how do you present a person is what we will learn here. In this example, Karan introduces his friend Farid to Rahul at a party.
