    Introduce

    Hello teachers,

    For the life time of me I don't know why it has taken so long for him to "introduce us" properly.

    The context is that a person is introducing is wife to his friend. The sentence is the reply from his friend.

    My question is: is "introduce us" right?

    Shouldn't it be "introduce you to me or me to you"?

    Sir, thank you for your reply.


    If A introduces C to B. Both C and B can say that A introduced us(which means We came to know each other through A). Is that right?

    You don't have to specify the separate parties who are being introduced, unless you want to use their names.

    He introduced John and Jane.
    He introduced John to Jane.
    He introduced them.

    He introduced me to Clive.
    He introduced Clive to me.
    He introduced us.

    He introduced me and Clive to John.
    He introduced us to John.

    She introduced me and Clive to John.
    She introduced us to him.
