Interested in Language
I am at a company I work for. In the lobby, I meet my subordinate employee, who is followed by two guests. I wasn't informed about the visit.
I want to approach and ask who the two gentlemen are. How to access them?
Me: Excuse me gentlemen.
Me: (to my worker) Would you please introduce the gentlemen (to me)?
The worker: These two gentlemen are from Israel; Mr. Jim and Mr. John.
Should I introduce myself then or wait the worker to introduce me to the gentleman.
Should I asked the subordinate employee to introduce me to them, first, maybe.
Please someone let me know the proper conversation.
You could start by introducing yourself and then your employee should introduce them to you.
Please note that "Jim" and "John" are typically given names, not surnames/family names.
If the person's name is Jim Smith, we do not say "Mr. Jim." We say "Mr. Smith."
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
