At this time I will discuss about greeting. As we know, when we first meet with the new person, then automatically we will ask for her/his name, where she/he came from, a job, a place to stay this time, and others. then to ask those things we usually use the expressions of greeting.
What’s your name? My name is/ I’m…
Where do you come from? I come from..
Where are you from? I am from…
Where do you live? I live in…
What do you do? I am English Student.
Where do you go to school? I go to school at STKIP Pasundan majoring in English Education study program/ I study at STKIP Pasundan majoring in English Education study program.
In answering the question, then the answer sentence structure that we provide must correspond to the question sentence. As the sentence above, when there is the question “where do you come from?” then answered “I come from …”, but when there is the question “where are you from?” Then answered must use to be too “I am from…”.
