When you have the chance to work, travel or live in foreign countries, it’s necessary for you to greet others politely and casually. Other than saying ‘ how are you’, do you know any other ways to say hello ? Let’s forget about ‘ how are you’ and ‘I’m fine, thank you’ and learn the following ways for greeting !
Are you alright ?
Q: Are you alright ?
A: Not bad. / I get by. / Not feeling so good.
How’s life treating you ?
Q: How’s life treating you?
A: Pretty good. / Nothing special.
What’s new ? / What’s up?
Q: What’s new ?
A: I’m doing ok. / Nothing much.
How’s your day?
Q: How’s your day?
A:It’s going well. / Not so good.
To continue the conversation, you can try to ask ‘ how about you’ , showing that you care about how is his / her day doing too.
