Don’t say ‘I came from’ if someone asks you ‘Where are you from’.

 

Hey guys. It’s Shane from English Understood here.

 

‘Where are you from’ is a very common question that you often get asked when you meet someone new so it’s important that you know how to answer it correctly.

 

‘Where are you from’ is normally asking about your country or your city. It’s not asking where you came from today.

 

To answer the question, simply say ‘I’m from’ plus your country. I’m from Australia. I’m from China. I’m from Brazil.

 

 And if you want to ask the other person where they are from, simply add ‘What about you’ after your answer. I’m from Australia. What about you?

 

So now let me ask you a question. Where are you from? Comment down below.
