Casual Polite Greeting #5: Good to see you -by Kathryn Reilly

Good to see you

This greeting is a statement rather than a question.  Of the other polite greetings listed here, it is the most formal.  It can be used casually and followed by a smile or hug, or used formally followed by a handshake.  Sometimes, the word “nice” is used instead of the word “good” making the greeting “Nice to see you”.  If you’ve seen the person recently, it would be appropriate to say “Good to see you again”.

Casual Polite Greeting #4 – How’s it going? -by Kathryn Reilly

Hey there! Are you ready for casual polite greeting number 4? Well ready or not, here it comes!

How’s it going?

This is another polite greeting which can be used instead of the slightly more formal “How are you?” or “How do you do?” . This is an appropriate greeting for everyone, whether they are younger or older than you.  A very similar phrase to “How’s it going” is “How are you doing?”; the second is considered to be a bit less casual and is often used to greet someone who may be having a difficult time in their lives.  For example, it would be a better choice to use “How are you doing?” when greeting someone who was recently ill or experienced a death in the family.

How’s it going?

Visit Stack Exchange for some examples.

Here is the Greeting #5

 

Then come on over and have a lesson. We miss you and we want to know, “how’s it going”.

Casual Polite Greeting #3: How’s Everything? -by Katheryn Reilly

How’s everything?

How’s everything is a casual polite greeting that is used to ask casually about another person’s life.  We can use it to greet a person you already know. But don’t use it to greet a stranger.  The greeting “How’s everything” can also be replaced with “How are things?”  In this case, “things” refers to the aspects in an individual’s life such as family, friends, job, and other topics that friends routinely talk about with one another.

How’s everything?

  *Don’t confuse with “How’s everything?” when a waiter comes to your table. In this situation they are asking if you are happy with the food.

By the way, how are things with you?

Casual Polite Greeting #2 – What’s up? by Katheryn Reilly

What’s Up?

What’s Up?

This polite greeting is a shorter way of asking “How are you?” or “How do you do?”  It is a very casual way to ask about what’s been happening in a person’s life when you first greet them.  It is often accompanied by a smile or hug but not a handshake due to its very casual nature.

Have you ever asked someone what’s up? Maybe you should give it a try.

Not WhatsAPP! What’s up?

Speaking of WhatsAPP, did you know we have WhatsAPP lessons. Come schedule a WhatsAPP lesson with Teresa and give it a try!

Stay tuned tomorrow for Katheryn’s next casual, polite greeting.

Casual polite greeting #1 – Hey There! by Katheryn Reilly

Remember those casual polite greetings we told you about yesterday? As we promised, here is the first one:

Hey there!

Hey There!
           Hey There! 

This greeting is very casual. We can use it typically between individuals that are already acquainted, and may have met before several times.  Younger individuals often use this phrase when they are speaking to others similar in age. Sometimes, “Hey!” is used by itself as a friendly greeting with a friendly nod.  However one should remember that in English, one can use “hey” word as an attention getter to focus someone’s attention. Therefore, it is best to use the phrase “Hey there!” as a polite greeting.

Come back tomorrow to see what casual, polite greeting Katheryn has for you next!

Polite Greetings in the English Language – by Kathryn Reilly

Greetings

Polite Greetings

Greeting someone with Casual Polite English Greetings is the first step to making a good first impression.  While you likely know “Hello” and “How are you”, these very casual greetings may not be quite right for every type of encounter.  You should use polite greetings  when meeting someone for the first time, when greeting someone you’ve met a few times, when greeting someone you haven’t seen a long time, or when greeting a coworker outside of a business context.  Be sure to also use friendly body language such as smiling, eye contact, and/or an extended hand for a handshake.  A wave or hug could also be appropriate if the meeting is between friends and taking place in a causal environment such as a mall or at a park.  This week we will share the eight most common with you. Visit daily for the next eight days to learn them.

In the meantime, why don’t you schedule some lessons so you can practice?

Can you tell us some of your favorite casual polite English greetings? Let’s see if Kathryn’s are the same as yours.
