Je m'appelle Marie.

Je m'appelle Marie: why is "Mon nom est Marie" not also correct?

Hi Scott,

You would be understood if you said -

Mon nom est ...

but I am afraid that is not how the French would say it.

My name is Je m'appelle 

so you need to get used to the verb 's'appeler' which is the point of the lesson.

Hope this helps!

Thanks, Cecile. It will help, in future, if I study relevant lesson before taking test.
