When you introduce yourself, you should add more pauses in your speech because most of your information will be new to the listener.

Write a self-introduction. Include your name, job title, the languages you speak, where you grew up and your interests. Write it out so that each thought group is on a separate line as shown below.

My name is/
Maggie/
Lim./
I am a software engineer/
at a company in Sunnyvale./

I speak Chinese,/
Japanese,/
and English./
I grew up/
in Singapore/
and now live/
in the United States./

Practice giving your own self-introduction using pauses to make sure new information is clear.

If you have a way to record your voice, practice your self-introduction and record yourself. Listen to yourself. Is all of the new information clear?
