It is also useful to know lots of different ones so as to notrepeat yourself when you meet a number of people at the sametime. As with any other aspect, you need to be careful about usinginformal expressions with people who you do not know well orwhose rank or status is higher than yours.

  42. 42. orHi."Congratulations!" or"Well done!""Get well soon."When meeting someoneformally for the firsttime, we shake theirhand and say "How doyou do?" or "Pleased tomeet you.""How do you do?" isnt really a question, itjust means "Hello".
  43. 43. General greetings (Formal)Hello!How are you?How are you doing?How is everything?How’s everything going?How have you been keeping?I trust that everything is well.General greetings (Informal)Hi.What’s up?Good to see you.How are things (with you)?How’s it going?How’s life been treating you?

  50. 50. Good byeHow many ways do you know how to say “goodbye” in English? Do youabuse and overuse them? This is your chance to expand yourrepertoire of farewells with a lesson on the 26 most dynamic, fun, andessential ways to say goodbye in the English languageLet’s face it, “goodbyes” are complicated, they are full of difficult toconvey thoughts and emotions, subtle messages and pressures, andthey are often pretty important. It’s awkward in your nativetongue, but in a second language it can be painful.It’s one of the most fundamental yet underestimated aspects ofthe English language, and it’s how people remember us. This is allthe more reason to be prepared with the right expressions, and tomake them a permanent part of your repertoire.
  51. 51. 5 Basic Goodbyes You Probably Know AlreadyGoodbye is rarely used and often as adefinitive goodbye (I will not see youagain) while bye is more relaxed andinformal.GoodbyeByeSee You LaterSee youLaterIn see you later and see you, the“you” is pronounced as ya (withthe same sound of the “u” infun)
  52. 52. 6 Essential Goodbyes to Add to Your RepertoireIt Was Nice to See You Again is one of the most effective andimportant things you can include in your goodbye to a person youalready know. If you just met them, most everybody knows thestandard “nice to meet you,” but few English learners know howto say “It was nice to see you again.”Take Care is one of my favorites because it’s good to use in bothinformal and formal situations, with friends and strangers, andalways seems to have a sincere feel to it.Take it Easy is another one of my favorite greetings, and it iswhat I use in informal situations. While a lot of people use “Takeit easy” to say “calm down” (which is another use of it, asexemplified in the Eagles song “Take it Easy”), the goodbyecommunicates that I hope you have the chance to relax andenjoy whatever it is you do.
  53. 53. Have a Good One is another awesome American greeting thatbasically wishes the other person well. You can say have agood “day” or “week” or “trip” or “vacation,” but “have a goodone” communicates the general intention without focusing onthe specifics of any one event.Have a nice ___________ is another common greeting thatyou can use in many situation. Similar to the aboveexample, we’re always saying “have a nice day/ week/vacation/ meeting, etc.” It’s one of the most universal andrespectful ways to say goodbye to another person. This is agoodbye we well as a way to say good luck.Until…. This is not as common of a greeting as it used to be,but it is used when you know you’re going to see the person(until tomorrow/ until Saturday, etc).
  54. 54. 15 Cool Slang Goodbyes You’ll Never Learn in SchoolPeace (Out) was really popular a few years back, but is stillpretty common in some circles. It comes from the universalexpression of “Peace,” has become a verb (I’m going to peaceout now. See you later!), and is often accompanied by the twofingered peace sign. This is a semi-hip-hop informal goodbye, somake sure you don’t use it in a business meeting. I still use thisone with my friends.I’m out of here (“I’m ouda here) or a simple “I’m out” is a quick and informalway to announce that you will be leaving amongst your friends. A friend ofmine from Boston used to joke around with this and say “I’m outa hair like abald man” (here sounds like hair, and “out of” also means no more- i.e. “thecar is out of gas.”).(I’ll) Catch You Later/ Catch You On The Flip Side: While Catch You Later is still inpopular use, Catch You on the Flip Side is a bit more rare. While, “Catch You Later”is pretty self-explanatory, The Flip Side basically means on the other side of things,when things come back around.
  55. 55. I gotta* go / I gotta* get going: See note below for explanation on “gotta.”These are both easy ways to delicately let somebody know that you needto leave and start to say goodbye. The get from “get going” means tomove toward (going). Example: “Look, Jack, I gotta get going. It was niceto see you again. Take care.”I Gotta Jet- “Jet”, which is literally a huge passenger aircraft, has been madeinto a goodbye that means that you are leaving promptly (like a jet)!I Gotta Take Off- Similar to “Jet,” take off is another word that comes fromaircraft terminology. Take off is when the plane leaves the ground, so whenyou say that you’re taking off, it means that you’re leaving.I Gotta Roll- While “roll” literally is used for things with wheels(car, skateboard), it means to make movement, so when you say “I gottaroll,” it means that you need to move.I Gotta Run- This one seems pretty self-explanatory. Although you’re notreally running, “I Need to Run” indicates more hurry in your goodbye.
  56. 56. I Gotta Split- “Split,” which means “divide” in many cases, here means to leavequickly, or to head in the other direction.I Gotta Make Tracks – “Tracks” are the footprints you leave on the ground, sowhen you say “make tracks,” it means to leave a trail of footprints and leave.I Gotta Hit The Road- “Hit” in this sense means to “get on” or “start” onsomething, so “Hit the Road” means to leave/ start moving on the road.0I Gotta Head (Out) – “Head”/ “Head out” is another cool way I announce mydeparture regularly. Head as a verb is to “go in the direction of.” It makes a lot ofsense because when you move directions, you always start with your head(physically and intentionally).I Gotta Bounce- “Bounce” is what a basketball does when you dribble it withyour hand, and it represents the initial conscious effort/ push you make to leave(it’s often not easy to bounce yourself away from a party).
