Lesson 2: Greetings

For people we know or we just met

This is the language you might use if you are greeting people in quite formal situations and, of course, in business or at your workplace. These are the ways you can sound more polite and careful.

  • Hello/ Good morning/ afternoon/ evening. How are you, madam (ma’am)/ sir?
  • I’m fine/ ok/ well, thank you.
  • How do you do? – How do you do.
  • How do you feel? – I feel fine/ bad.
  • How are things in your (company/ city/ country)?
  • They are quite well/ not so bad.

NOTE: Good day (G’Day) is an old-fashioned way to send off (goodbye) someone in British or American English. But in Australia it is pretty common.
