What would you say? Lets see some examples of how you would introduce yourself to new classmates from other towns. What would you say good about where you were born and raise? Show an example (without telling us who you really are of course.) Would you be positive?

Being a new person in any group can be hard, especially if you are shy. I assume you want to make friends (maybe more?) with some new person at school. If the person is of the opposite sex, you might start it off by complimenting them ie. I like how you done your hair today, I like your outfit, you have very pretty eyes. Then say "I am John and this isnt a bad school once you start to make friends and fit in. So what did everyone at your last school do for fun?" Ask a couple open ended questions, and keep the conversation going for a minute. Then say it was nice to get to talk to her/him and say you have to get to class.

If your shy yourself, it helps to rehearse what your going to say a few times out-loud. Don't talk too fast. Make intermittent eye contact (constant eye contact is a turnoff and so is looking at the ground).

Anyway, I hope that helps.

Oh God, the grammar police. "I like what you have done with your hair today" is not really how a teenager would say it.

By the way, I corrected the word "english", in the quotation of your remarks. Damn, I ended a sentence with a preposition. Wanna correct that as well?

In my opinion, the important rules of grammar are important because they ensure clarity when exchanging information. Some of the others are really just asinine caveats that complicate the exchanging of information. I don't give a flying fluck about asinine rules of grammar. Quite frankly, the English language needs some simplification of the semantics. Damn, there is another sentence ending in a preposition. However, since the message is very clear, does it really matter? Hell no!

'just so you know' is totally straight up, dude!

It would probably go like this: "Hey dude. Whasssup, bra? Awesome f**kin' do ya got goin'. Wanna chill in my crib til my Mom gets home from her second job?

Amirite?

No! If I am trying to get a date from some hot guy it woould go lik this.

"I am sure people tell you this all the time, but you have very pretty eyes"

"Thanks. My name is John."

"Hello John. I am Jennifer and this town is really not bad once you get used to it. Did you move here from a biggger city?"

"Yes. How did you know"

"You have this air of sophistication and culture about you."

"Thanks you."

"Your welcome. This area does have some fun places to go. Maybe I could show you around sometime."

"I would like that. Let me get your number."

It usually works for me.

"Oh, Hi. Nice to meet you. We had every class together for 4 years. my name is ______"

'did' as past tense of 'to do' is too complicated for you?

should be:

"You have this air of sophistication and culture about you."
"Well, I do use the word 'did' at times."

Go suck a big fat hairy donkey penis.

People like you who have nothing to contribute beyond correcting grammar are asinine. You're an idiot.

"I like the way you have done your hair today"

I didn't use the wrong tense of a verb. I mistyped and left out the verb. Done is an adjective, not a verb. However, my reply still stands. I hear many people say "I done it" "You done?" etc. The actually grammatical error is that the verb is missing in all the above.

So again, what makes the difference it is informal speech and the information was conveyed without any confusion.
