自己紹介の時間を少し長めに持ちたいって英語でなんて言うの?

初めての先生とのレッスンの時、お互い短い自己紹介じゃなくて少し長めの自己紹介タイム(とても長くなくていい)を持ちたいのです。

  • Today, can we spend a little bit more time on introductions and get to know each other a bit better.

    play icon

This answer is a perfect way of asking your teacher to extend the self introduction part of a lesson. Sometimes a teacher may sound as if they have had an interesting life and you'd like to know more. Or you would just like to get to know your teacher a bit better.
上の回答は、レッスンの自己紹介部分を長くして欲しいと先生にお願いする場面で使えます。先生が面白い経験をしていそうで、もっと聞いてみたいと思うことがあるのかもしれませんね。または、単純に自分の先生のことをもう少し知りたいとかでしょうか。

  • I need a little more time to continue with my introduction.

  • I'm sorry, I haven't quite finished with my introduction, may I continue please?

When you're trying to explain to your English teacher that you would like more time to introduce yourself, you can say:

- May I have more time to introduce myself?
- May I have more time to continue with my introduction?
先生に自己紹介の時間がもっと欲しいと伝えたいなら、以下のように言えます:

- May I have more time to introduce myself?(自己紹介の時間をもう少し頂けますか)
- May I have more time to continue with my introduction?(自己紹介の時間をもう少し頂けますか)

  • I'd like our self introduction to last a little bit longer.

  • Can we continue with our self introduction for a little bit?

The two sentences you see provided above are excellent ways to express to your teacher that you want your self introduction to last longer than it normally does. In each sentence you will notice the term a little bit. This means a small or short amount of something. This is a term that is common in our everyday conversation and is appropriate for informal settings.
上記例文は、通常よりも長めの自己紹介の時間を持ちたいことを先生に伝える適切な表現です。

”A little bit"というフレーズがありますが、これは何かが量的に「少し」または「短い」ことを表します。カジュアルな場面で使える、日常会話フレーズです。

  • Is it possible if I could use a little more time to introduce myself?

    play icon

The beginning of the phrase is asking if something is possible. This means that the person is asking permission. This is a VERY polite way for asking for something. The next part of the phrase is asking if some extra time can be used.
まず「Is it possible」で、あることが可能かどうか尋ねています。相手の許可を求めているわけです。これはお願いをする時のすごく丁寧な言い方です。

例文の次の部分では、もう少し時間を使ってもいいか尋ねています。

  • Can we spend some extra time on our self introduction?

  • Can our self introduction be a little longer please?

Both examples above are good ways of expressing to the teacher that you would like to spend a bit more time on the self introduction.
どちらの例を使っても、「自己紹介の時間を少し長めに持ちたい」と先生に伝えることができます。

  • Can we please have our self introduction be more involved by making it longer.

  • Please can we increase the duration of our self introduction.

  • Can we please spend more time on our self introduction?

If you would like to spend more time practicing a self-introduction it is a good idea to spend more time chatting on the topic, this way there are more ideas you could express that you hadn't before and this will help you learn more.

You could expand the topic and speak about dreams for the future, past mistakes, inspirations, fears and more.
You could go into more detail about your hobbies and why you enjoy them, what got you started with each one etc

Expand: lengthen, broaden
Increase: to make longer, add more
Duration: length of time
More involved: more detailed
自己紹介の練習をするなら、その話題についてより掘り下げるようにするといいと思います。今まで話せなかったことについて話せるようになると思います。

話題を広げて、例えば将来の夢、過去の失敗、好きなもの、嫌いなものなどについて話してもいいでしょう。

趣味についてより具体的に、なぜ好きなのかや始めたきっかけなどについて話してもいいと思います。

Expand: 長くする、広げる
Increase: 長くする、増やす
Duration: 時間の長さ
More involved: より綿密な

  • Let's do an in-depth introduction and get to know each other.

    play icon

Lets do は「~しよう」と言う意味ですね  

an in-depth introduction が「長く自己紹介をする、とか深く話す」   

and really get to know each other
REALLYを使って「本当に」を強調して「分かるようにお互いのことをもっと知りましょう」という意味になります。

  • Can we take a little more time on the self introduction

  • I would like to have a slightly longer self introduction

    play icon

When you tell someone you haven't met before about yourself this is called a 'self introduction'
Usually it is pretty short so you can continue with the lesson but if you want a longer one to get to know each other then you could ask 'can we take a little more time' or ' i would like to have a slightly longer'
これまで会ったことのない人に自己紹介することを、'self introduction'と言います。

たいていとても短く、レッスンに入っていけますが、もしもっとお互いのことを知りたくて長めにとりたいなら、'can we take a little more time' (もっと時間をとることはできますか?)や ' i would like to have a slightly longer'(もう少し長くとりたいです。)と言うことができます。

  • Could we spend a little longer than usual on the introductions, please?

    play icon

  • Is it OK if we dwell on the introductions a little as I want to practise that?

    play icon

At the beginning of an online English lesson, you want to say to your teacher that you want to take a little more time for the self introduction than usual. It doesn't have to be very long, just not the usual short one. If you can give a reason for wanting to spend longer than usual on introductions, it may help the teacher understand your needs better.
オンライン英会話の冒頭、自己紹介の時間を少し長め(そんなに長くなくてもいい)に持ちたいと先生に伝えたいということですね。

自己紹介の時間を長くしたい理由を伝えると、先生はより力になれると思います。

Hi, I am your tutor today, how are you?
I am good. I have a question though.
What is your question?
Can we take a little longer than usual for our self introduction, please?

I hope this helps.
Have a good day.

Asking this question is a good way to ask the teacher if it's okay if you both spend more time introducing yourselves respectively. Adding please is also important because it is polite to use your manners.

There are many ways that we can say that we want a long introduction to our teachers. We can either ask it as a question formation with, "can we..," or we can make it as a statement using, "lets," or, "I'd like."
