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 “How are you?” or “How do you do?” instead of that word? Maybe you should give it a try.
Note that it is not WhatsAPP! but it is 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.
