Business English - How to Talk About the Company You Work for in 3 Easy Steps
In today’s lesson, you will learn how to introduce yourself and others.
There are different ways to introduce yourself. Some ways are more formal for people you are meeting for the first time or for people who are above you in rank or position. Other ways are more casual or friendly.
We use the word “on” before days of the week
I have to work on Monday.
She has to leave on Friday.
She works part-time on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
If something happens every week, we can say something like, “I take English lessons on Wednesdays.” That means not just this Wednesday, but every Wednesday, week after week.
His birthday is on August 1st.
He was born on the 4th of July.
In both cases, on comes before the date.
In addition to using “in before a unit of time, before a year, or a month, we can also use “in” before “the morning” or “the afternoon,” but we use “at” before night. Here is an example of how to use “in” and “at” in the same sentence.
“She eats breakfast in the morning, eats lunch in the afternoon, and eats dinner at night.”
We also use the preposition “at” before a specific time on the clock, such as “at 1:00,” “at 2:30,” “at noon,” or “at midnight.”
We do not use “at” before “next week,” but we can use “at” before an event, such as, “I will see you at the next meeting” or “We will see you again at the next party.”
