Many of us in everyday life have been exposed to the expression «go in English.» Upon hearing this phrase for the first time, perhaps, everyone will wonder: «how is this way in English?» And often we hear in response: «I do not forgive you!». It seems that the British — very rude and impolite people, or as lazy, he did not even bother to pick up the words of farewell, and just silently go. I hasten to dispel this myth. The English as none of the other nationalities, there are many ways to say goodbye, farewell using different phrases and words (words of parting). Let’s talk more about these sentences. The simplest and most common way to say goodbye is the phrase Good-bye!. It is more formal than the phrase Bye! Or Bye-Bye!, We often uses when communicating with our friends and good friends. What else there is an expression? I will try to acquaint you with the main ones:
- Good day! — Goodbye!
- So long! — To your visit! Till!
- Good-bye for the present! — Farewell!
- Good-Bye for good! — Farewell forever!
- Cheerio! — Good day!
- See you soon! Or See you! — See you soon!
- See you later! — See you later!
- See you tomorrow! — See you tomorrow!
- I hope we’ll see (be seeing) some more of you! — I hope you have not time for us to have a look!
- Good night! — Goodbye! Good night!
- I must be off! — I have to go!
- Sheerie-bye! — Before svidanitsa! Bye Bye!
- Farewell! — Bon voyage!
- Adieu! — Farewell!
- Take care of yourself! Or Look after yourself! — Take care of yourself!
Also saying goodbye, we often ask to say hello to our families or just friends. Make it in English we can use phrases: remember me to …, give / send my kind regards to …, give / send my love to …. In response to these phrases, we must say: thanks, I will, or certainly, I will.
Well, good-bye! And please remember me to your mother! — Thanks, I will!
In response to the usual phrase of farewell correct answer using the same phrase.
Well, I’m off. Good-bye! — Good-Bye!
There are also more formal farewell formula. Depending on the time of day when we say goodbye, you can use the following phrases:
- Good morning! — Good morning! Bye!
- Good afternoon! — Good day! Bye!
- Good evening! — Good evening! Bye!
