Forms of Address

In most English speaking countries people use first names when they meet other people and only use titles in more formal situations or with older people.

The way someone introduces himself or herself to you usually indicates what name to call them. For example, if someone introduces himself like this, “My name’s Brown. Bill Brown“, then you should call him Mr. Brown. However, if a person says to you “My name’s Richard, Richard Jones”, then you can call that person Richard.

It is not so common to introduce yourself with a title such as “I’m Mr. Schmidt” or “I’m Ms. Harner”. This practice is usually for introducing other people. For example, you could introduce your boss by saying “This is Ms. Moore”.

The title for a man is “Mr.”. Titles for women include “Miss” for unmarried women and “Mrs.” for married women. If in doubt, use the title “Ms.” which indicates that her marital status is not relevant or is unknown.

Finally, do not use titles with first names. It’s not very common to say “Mr. John” or “Ms. Elisabeth”, unless you are a young child.
