Greetings


Meeting someone for the first time:

 

  We usually say :'good morning/good afternoon, nice to meet you', when we meet someone for the first time.

  (apart from ' How do you do' which is formal.

 

   The answer could be :'nice to meet you too' or 'same here'.

   'nice meeting you' is to tell him/her good bye.

 

meeting a colleague:

 

  'Good morning/good aftenoon, how are you?'

   The answer could be :'Fine, thank you/thanks, how about you?'

   'Have a nice day/evening/weekend', to tell him/her good bye.

 

Less formal: meeting friends

 

  'Hi, how are you doing?'

   The answer could be: 'I'm good/ok...how about you?'

   'Take care/take it easy', to say good bye

 

This is rather American English, not British English.
