    To confirm the presentation?

    In Голоса книга 1, разговор 2 there is phrase that I can't get to understand: the title of this разговор is something like "ордержите предстается"; a Northamerican student in Moscow addresses to his Professor of Russian Language and, again, says "Oрдержите / ордижите предстается. Я новый студент...". The Professor asks for his personal data, name, aso.
    Firstly I thought that is was something like "Confirmation of presentation". "подвержить предстается (?)" but like this is has no sens.
    Can you help me to make out what this words mean? Спасибо.

    "Разрешите представиться" - "Let me introduce myself"

    BTW:
    Oрдержите / ордижите - there's no such word.
    подтвердить представиться - grammatically incorrect and nonsensical.

    So it's better when you try not only to hear what people are saying, but to analyse it (tenses, cases, context, etc.) to make an educated guess.
