1. Excuse me. Are you Bora?
1-1. Tell me. Are you Bora?
(Are both OK?)

2. Oh, I'd like to introduce my friend.
2-1. Oh, I'd love to introduce my friend.
(Are both OK? What is the difference between them?)


3. Nice to meet you.
3-1. Nice to see you.
(What is the difference between them? Is there no difference between them?)

  • English -

    #1 - Both are OK.

    #2 - Both are OK. 2-1 is just a bit more expressive or emphatic.

    #3 - They are similar, but 3 indicates having met someone for the first time, while 3-1 indicates having met and seen someone more than once.

  • English -

    "Tell me" is more like a command, while "excuse me" suggests that you have interrupted some ongoing activity and are apologizing for doing so.

    "Love" is more emotionally extreme than "like."

    "Meet" is more likely to be used with a new acquaintance, while "see" is more likely to be used with someone you already know and see repeatedly.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
