    Introduce

    When we introduce self, I have been taught that,
    I am Thomas Edmond, from India.But today I heard, when we introduce self, we would say,
    My Name is Thomas Edmond, from India. Actually which one is correct.

    Gil, "ourself" sounds a little bit strange to my ear, but it's corrrect ofcourse.

    Do you mean what I said about "ourself"? perhaps "ourselves". Though "ourselves" is also strange, because that's only one "self".
