How to great and say good bye ni english :

Meetings and greetings
1. Hi, Hiya, hey, hey man, hey girl
Within the English speaking world, people often say “hi” or “hiya” when greeting
someone, with “hiya” being slightly less informal than “hi”. These words are typically
used in casual settings, particularly among youngsters and friends. Some people also say
“hey” or “hey man/hey girl” – usually when meeting people they are particularly close to
or have met many times before.
It’s also important to know that the word “hey” can be used to grab someone’s attention.
So, if you’re using it to say “hello” to a person, try to say the word in a calm, relaxed way
rather than with emphasis as you might do when trying to make them notice you from
2. How’s it going? How are you doing?
As well as “how are you?” many people also say “how’s it going?” or “how are you
doing?” When living, working or studying in the UK, you will frequently hear people say
variations of “hey, how’s it going?” to which the reply might be something like “it’s
going well” or “I’m fine/I’m good.”
When learning English as a foreign language, it’s important to note the pronunciation of
“going” in a casual environment to avoid confusion. Said quickly, “going” can sound like
“go-in” but indeed it is the same word which should be spelt correctly during a listening
comprehension test.
3. What’s up? What’s new?
If you bump into someone you’ve not seen in a while, it’s normal to say something like
“hey, what’s up” or “hey man, what’s new?” This is an informal way of starting a
conversation and showing interest in someone’s life. While some people will answer
with “nothing” or “not much,” others will engage in a little small talk about something
interesting that is happening or has happened.
If someone asks you this question, feel free to say as much or as little as you like
depending on what’s appropriate at the time. Be aware, however, that in English culture,
people don’t typically give away a lot of personal information during a brief, informal or
accidental meeting.
4. Good morning, good afternoon, good evening
Instead of saying “hello”, you can say “good morning,” “good afternoon” or “good
evening” depending on what time of day it is. To make the greeting less formal, you
could also simply just say “morning,” “afternoon” or “evening” with a nod of the head,
hand wave or smile. If you want to wish someone well for the night before leaving or
sleeping, you can also say “goodnight.”
Saying goodbye
1. Bye, bye, bye!
Instead of “goodbye”, you can quite simply say “bye” or “bye, bye”. The latter is
commonly said by children and has a repetitive innocence about it.
2. See ya, see you soon, hope to see you soon
If you are leaving but plan to meet up with a person in the near future you can say
anything along the lines of “see you” or “hope to see you soon.”
3. Take it easy, take care, take care of yourself
These three ways of saying goodbye encourage the person in question to look after
themselves until you see them again. While informal, they are a polite, friendly way to
end a meeting.
