Lesson Transcript

Today, we'll introduce parting greetings.
As we learned in the previous lesson, "goodbye", "bye", and "bye bye" are different ways you can part in English. However, there are more ways than this!
A parting expression that we can use for all occasions is "see you", which is a short form for "see you later". Let's break it down by syllable. See you la-ter. Now let's hear it again. See you or see you later.
Let's look at another expression. The expression "take care" is also a parting greeting that is commonly used. Let's hear it again. Take care. Take care. It can be combined with the word "bye". So in the end it'll sound like "take care now, bye". Once again, take care now, bye. Since it's not so long or short, it's a friendly way to part with people
Let's step it up a bit. When parting, it is often nice to wish somebody well. For example, I can say, "have a nice day" to somebody that I won't see for the rest of the day. Let's hear it one more time. Have a nice day. Have a nice day. It's a warm way to say goodbye to somebody, both formally and informally.
Now what would you say if it's 6 pm and you're going home and you won't see the person until tomorrow? "Have a good evening". Just substitute "nice day" with "good evening". Once again, have a good evening. Have a good evening.
Okay, now to close out today's lesson, we'd like you to practice what you've just learned. I'll say the phrase or sentence, and why don't you try saying it out loud? Good luck everybody!
- See you later
- Take care
- Have a nice day
- Have a good evening
All right, that's going to do it for today! See you all soon!
