Unit 1: Good Morning
It is very important for us as foreigners not only to know about all the phrases „
greetings and leave takings but also how we use them.

Good afternoon.Good evening, (sir)Good morning (until about lunch time
12 mid-day to 1 p.m.)Good afternoon (till tea-time or just after
5 to 6 p.m.)Good evening (till about 9 p.m.)
The answers are the same.
Do not say “Good day”, except in Australia.
Do not use “Good evening” when leaving. Here “Good night” is used
When you know the person a little better, you may say:How are you?The answer will be:Fine, thanks; or Very well, thank you.Remember that the THANK YOU or THANKS should end the phrase, not beginit.If you are not well and wish to make this known, say: Not very well, or: Not too
well, I‟m afraid.
NOTE: 1) It is essential to use rising intonation in: I‟m afraid.
