Just learn some simple English sentences that will help you to start a conversation with your new colleagues.
Before you actually start the conversation, let your colleagues know that you are learning English. Ask them to correct you if they find any mistake. This will be a great idea to improve your English. Let’s look at some simple English sentences.
Simple English Sentences
1. While introducing yourself
First thing you will do is to introduce yourself to your fellow coworkers. You can start like, “Hi, my name is Naman.” Ask them their name, and once you know their name, repeat their name and say, “nice to meet you........” Tell them you have just joined the organization with the following sentence, “I have just started working here. I am new to XYZ Company.” In the next sentence, you can specify your section/ department where you work. “I am working in the Content department. What do you do here?”
2. Greeting (Hello/ Bye)
Greet “Good morning, good afternoon” according to the time. Ask, how are you by using “How’s everything? How’s it going?” It’s nice to ask on a Monday if someone’s weekend was nice or interesting. You can ask, “How was your weekend?” When you leave the office say, “See you tomorrow” or if it’s a Friday you can say “Have a nice weekend”.
3. Asking where things are
When we are new to the office we aren’t aware about many things and places. When asking those you can use – “Where can I find the (restroom/coffee maker /[anything])?” Until you learn about the things, you can use these sentences. When you get something in the office and aren’t aware about where to leave it, ask – “Where can I leave this?”
