Different Greetings for different people



Two friends meeting


Friends often say “Hi” to each other. They can use informal greetings

Then they often ask a general question, such as:

“How are you?” or “How are things?” or “How’s life?”

The reply to this question is normally positive.

“Fine thanks, and you?”

“Fine thanks, what about yourself?”

“Not bad.”

Greeting people you don’t know


You can use “Hello” with people you don’t know, and you have also more formal greetings  acording to the part of the day as:

“Good morning”

“Good afternoon”

“Good evening.”

The other person normally replies with the same greeting as you have used.

Also you have to use formal and informal farewells such as:

“Good bye”

“Bye- bye”

“Good night”

Instructions


COMMANDS & REQUESTS

Be quiet!                                    Listen to me carefully!



Commands (orders, instructions) and requests (please, do it) are expressed with the imperative form of the verb:

Affirmative go!

Affirmative form (base form of the verb):          Wait!

Negative don’t go!

Negative short form (Don’t + base form):          Don’t wait!

Imperative

stand up                                            open your book

To make the imperative, use the infinitive of the verb without ‘to’:
Request please, go !

Use please to make a polite request

You can use the imperative form to give an order, to give a warning or advice, and (if you use “please”) to make a request.

To make a negative imperative, put “do not” or “don’t” before the verb:

“Don’t go!”
“Do not walk on the grass.”

Orders

Adults can give orders to children and to animals:

“Sit down now!”                           Read the book

Here are some orders you could give your pet dog:

“Stay here!”                     “Sit!”

Warnings

You can use the imperative to warn someone of danger.

“Watch out!”
“Look out!”
“Don’t cross!”

Advice

When you give advice using the imperative.

“Eat an apple !“

“Don’t eat so much candy”

Requests

You can also use the imperative to make a request, but you should use a polite word before the verb:
