HOW TO SAY HELLO

Hi everybody. This is Mr. Duncan in England.
How are you today?
Are you OK? … I hope so!
Are you happy? … I hope so!
In today’s lesson, we’re going to talk all about saying:
“Hello” and “Goodbye”
When we first meet someone,
Whether it is a person we know
Or someone we are meeting for the first time
we will normally use a simple sentence
A greeting is a friendly way of opening a conversation
Or as a way of letting the other person know that we have seen them.
There are many ways to say hello.
“Hello”
“Hi here”
“Hello there”
“Hey, how are you doing?”
“What’s up?”
“We sometimes use a double greeting …”
“Hi there, hey how are you doing?”
“Hello, how have you been?”
“It’s good to see you, how’s life been treating you?”
If you are meeting someone for the first time, you can say: “Good to meet you”
“It’s nice to meet you”
“Good to meet you”
“It’s nice to meet you”
“I’m pleased to meet you”
“Good to meet you”
“It’s nice to meet you”
“I’m pleased to meet you”
‘it’s a pleasure to meet you”
These sentences are often used after the ather person has been introduce to you.
If you are meeting someone you have not seen or heard from for a long time, then you can show a real surprise and shock.
“Oh my God, it’s you!”
“Aahh, where have you been?”
“My goodness, long time no speak”
“Wow, it’s so good to see you again”
“Is it really you? When did we last meet?”
“Wow, as I live and breathe, it’s my best friend from school”
If you are in a hurry in which to make your greeting.
“Hi, sorry. I can’t stop”
“Oh hi there, look I’m a bit pushed for time …”
“Hi, sorry. I can’t stop”
“Hello there, look I’m on my way to work …”
“Maybe catch up with you again soon”
“Hey’ I would love to stop and chat … but I really have to dash”
This type or greeting is common these days because we are all in such a big hurry to get some place …
We sometimes use the word “hello” as a way of showing surprise or as a way of expressing a sudden interest in something.
“Hello, what’s going on here?”
“Hello, I did not know he had a girlfriend”
“Hello, what’s going on over there?”
“Hello, sometthing is wrong here …”
“… he took my money!”
Here in the UK, people will often greet each other by talking about the weather.
“Hello, isn’t it a lovely day?”
“Hello. what about this terrible weather?”
“Hello, did you hear the storm last night?”
In many countries people will ask abut the family.
“Hello, how’s the family.”
“Hello, how’s your wife doing?”
“Hello, how are the kids?”
In China, people often greet each other by asking if they have eaten their lunch or dinner or ask them where they are going.
The word “hello” can also be used informally as a way of expressing sarcasm or annoyance.
“Hello, did you understand what I said?”
“Hello, was that too difficult for you to read?”
“Hello, did you see me waving at you?”
“Hello, do you not recognise me?”
“Hello, what time do you call this? You are late!”
Parting is such sweet sorrow.
That I shall say goodnight, till it be morrow”
That’s Shakespeare, that is.
Saying Goodbye.
There are many ways to say goodbye.

“See you around”
“Farewell”
“Ta-ra”
“See you again”
“Ta-ta for now”
“catch you later”
“Goodbye” “Bye”
“Bye for now”
“Bye-bye”
“See ya”
“So long”
“Ciao”
“Later”
“Cheerio”

You will often hear me say “ta-ta” at the end of my English lessons.
This expression is mostly used in certain parts of the UK.
It is a friendly, fun way to say goodbye.
Well I have come to the end of this lesson so I must bid you a fond farewell.
Until next time we meet here on the super-duper internet highway.
This is Misterduncan in England saying … thank you for watching me, teaching you … and … Ta-ta for now.
