"Me llamo/Mi nombre es" ¿cuál frase es más formal?
Good day all,
I would like to find out which phrase sounds formal and which phrase sounds casual. Because people would not introduce themselves to the president the way they introduce themselves to long lost family.
first mi llamo not its correct the correct its me llamo past time and mi nombre you use when you meet somebody
It also depends on the situation. If I'm talking to somebody, I would probably use " me llamo ....", but if I'm by example, leaving a message in an answering machine, I would probably use "mi nombre es ...". It will also depend on hoy the question was made. You can be asked both ways: "como te llamas" or "cuál es tu/su nombre". For me, "mi nombre es ..." sounds a little bit more formal, but this is just my opinion.
You can say either. If the situation is really casual, like you're just meeting someone on the bus or something, you can say "Soy ..." which is just "I am ..."
Mi llamo/Mi nombre que la frase es formal?
When addressing yourself, you say "Me llamo..." Llamar is a verb meaning "to call", and in Spanish you address yourself by saying, "I am called....[Bob]". This is the same for both formal and informal meetings, unless you want some kind of silly medieval royal court greeting that nobody uses anymore.
Regarding the rest of your title sentence, the portion "que la frase" should be "cuál frase", to say "which phrase". The total sentence, written correctly, is:
"Me llamo / Mi nombre es: ¿cuál frase es formal?"
Muchas gracias Sénor Stobber.Explanatory and to the point.
Thank You Senora Palmoa
but what do you mean by "past time" is this with respect to "me llamo"? Explain please.
