Greetings and Salutations
Hello! (Also good morning!)
It is an informal and relaxed greeting. It is to be used with accointances. Note that the “t” on the end of the word is silent.
This is an informal way of greeting someone, it can be used as an exclamation meaning “hello” or “hi.” It is similar to the English exclamation “peek-a-boo!”.
Informal greeting.This literally means “what’s new?
See you soon!
It expresses your desire to see the other person soon, but without giving a precise time frame. The final “t” is silent.
See you later!
“A tout à l’heure” or “A plus tard” is used when you are going to see the other person again later the same day. You are not giving a precise time, but it is understood that you will likely see the person later that same day.
Have a nice day!
Thank you and please in French
