What’s your name again?

Now I know why I remember faces so easily but it takes me forever to learn everyone’s names.

Another problem that I see (hear) frequently is this: when students introduce themselves, they say their names very quickly. We may be used to saying our own name, but other people aren’t used to hearing it, so slow down and enunciate. And give us something to help us remember your name, which leads us to the second video:

My name’s Ellen. And I like watermelon. Does that help?
