I go travelling a lot and I always meet new people wherever I go. And when we meet someone new (or old), the first thing we do is say hello. But it's not as simple as that! There are so many different ways to greet people! I want to show you some of the most common and most useful words and phrases, so that you will be prepared to greet people the right way according to the situation!
Let's start with some brainstorming! Watch the video and get to know several different ways of saying hello!
Now watch the next video! Listen closely and play it again if you didn't understand it! That usually helps! After that, take a look at the list of phrases that were used in the video. Can you put them in the right order?
ATTENTION! In England and America, it is very common to ask "How are you?" to greet people. Mind that they don't really want to know how you are! Just say, "Fine, thanks, how are you?". If they ask you again after that, you are allowed to answer honestly!
Now that you've seen so many different ways of greeting people, I want you to think about what you can remember and fill in the gaps in the sentences below. These are all very common ways of saying hello. Try not to forget them! Mind the spelling and capital letters!
