Basic Rules of Greeting Having good ability of business English conversation is important because it helps people to establish a sound relationship with workmates. All the relationships begin with greetings. If you meet people for the first time, your fluent selfintroduction and friendly greeting will make the positive first impression on them and vice versa. Remember, ‘the first’ impression can never be re-made because it is formed when you ‘first’ meet. Your self-introduction and greeting in the first meeting may decide whether the other person will like or trust you or not in the future!

Basic Rules of Greeting Once you get to know a new workmate, greetings remain important. Whenever you greet, you are advised to be polite and thoughtful. People tend to assume that those who greet are nice to work with. Without greeting, the atmosphere in the office will seem stiff, unfriendly and indifferent. Greetings work like motor oil which makes all parts of the machine operate smoothly. Try to leave a good impression on others as well as make busy life more pleasant to deal with!
