  • 13. Greeting - Basic• There are many ways to greet someone. We’ll learn about the most common ways to greet someone in this lesson. We’ll give a variety of example sentences.
  • 14. Greeting someone you never met: • "Hi, my name is Steve. It’s nice to meet you.“ • You can respond to this by saying, • "It’s a pleasure to meet you. I’m Jack." • Another common question to ask is • "What do you do for a living?" • You can respond to this by saying, • "I work at a restaurant.“ • "I work at a bank.“ • "I work in a software company.“ • "I’m a dentist."
  • 15. • Usually, you will not need to ask for a name. It is implied that each person should say their name. But in case they don’t, you can ask,• "What is your name?"• Many times, I don’t hear the name. If you would like for them to repeat their name, you can say,• "What was that again?“• "Excuse me?“• "Pardon me?"
  • 16. Greeting Someone you Know • "Hey John, how have you been?” • "Hi Bob, how are you?” • "Hi Nancy, what have you been up to?” • "Andy, it’s been a long time, how are you man?"
  • 17. • If you meet someone unexpectedly, you can say,• "Hey Jack, it’s good to see you. What are you doing here?’’• Or• "What a surprise. I haven’t seen you in a long time. How have you been?"
  • 18. • If you see the person at a restaurant, you can say,• "Do you come to this restaurant often?"• Or at the movie theatre,• "What movie did you come to see?"
  • 19. Appropriate responses: • "Hi Steve, my name is Mike. It is nice to meet you as well." • "I heard a lot about you from John. He had a lot of good things to say." • "Wow. How long has it been? It seems like more than a year. I’m doing pretty well. How about you?"
  • 20. Appropriate Responses 2 • A typical response to this type of greeting is simple. • "Not too bad." • If asked what you have been up to, you can respond with, • "Same ole same ole." • Or, • "The same as usual."
  • 21. Here are some other example responses. • "I’m pretty busy at work these days, but otherwise, everything is great.“ • "I’m doing very well.“ • "I finally have some free time. I just finished taking a big examination, and I’m so relieved that I’m done with it."
  • 22. Restaurant Responses • "I’ve been here a couple of times, but I don’t come on a regular basis.“ • "I come pretty often. This is my favorite restaurant.“ • "I can’t believe we haven’t seen each other before. I come here at least twice a week."
