Let’s practice introducing others.  To introduce others we will use the phrase ‘le presento’ which means ‘may I introduce you to’. 

This is followed by ‘a mi’ if you are introducing a family member, since you are implying a relationship to you. 

Example:  Le presento a mi esposo -> May I introduce you to my husband.

If you are introducing a person by their first name, without including their title, you add an ‘a’ before the name:

Example: Le presento a Ray Blakney -> May I introduce you to Ray Blakney.

If you are introducing a person with their title you add either an ‘a la’ if they are female or ‘al’, spelled ‘A-L’ if they are male.  That is just contraction of ‘a el’.

Example:  Le presento a la doctora Sánchez -> May I introduce you to Dr. Sánchez.

Now, repeat all the following phrases out loud, but add the word ‘le presento’ at the beginning of each one.

Example: A mi hijo -> Le presento a mi hijo.

Let’s get started!

A mi esposa
A mi padre
Al ingeniero Sánchez
A la maestra Smith
A mi hija
Al doctor Murata
A la licenciada Candice
