Lesson Transcript

Basic English Greetings
In this lesson we'll cover basic greetings for the appropriate time of day. As there are quite a few to cover, let's jump right in.
In English we can say ‘hello’ during any time of the day. You've probably heard this before, and it may be similar to the ‘hello’ in your language.
When parting, you would say ‘goodbye’, ‘bye-bye’, or just ‘bye’. ‘Goodbye’ is formal, while ‘bye’ and ‘bye-bye’ are more casual.
Slower by syllable: goodbye
Slower by syllabe: bye-bye
In the morning, you would naturally say ‘good morning’. Let's break it down by syllable: good mor-ning. Many times, the expression is shortened to only ‘morning’.
Any time past noon, we say ‘good afternoon’. Let's break it down by syllable: good aft-er-noon.
Finally, we have two evening greetings in English: ‘good evening’ and ‘good night’. ‘Good evening’ is usually used as a greeting, while ‘good night’ is used as a parting.
Just like with ‘good morning’, the ‘good’ in ‘good evening’ and ‘good night’ can be dropped. Some people may mumble it, and it may not be audible, but others may just not bother to say it. An example of the contracted form would be ‘g'night’.
Okay, to close out this lesson we’d like you to practice what you’ve just learned. I’ll provide you with the phrase, and you’re responsible for shouting it out loud. You have a few seconds before I give you the answer. So good luck!
- Hello
- Good bye
- Bye
- Bye-bye
- Good morning
- Good afternoon
- Good evening
- Good night


Alright! That’s going to do it for this lesson. Bye!
