925English – Lesson 1: How to Say Hello in English

925English Lesson 1 - How to Say Hello in English

This is a preview lesson from 925 English, a new series we’ll launch next year. Appropriately enough, we’re kicking off with a 925 English lesson on how to greet and say hello to colleagues and customers in English.

925English a new business English series for beginners (CEFR A1-A2) and lower intermediate (B1) English learners. 925 English lessons focus on chunks of language and English expressions that you can use in work and business. We get straight to the point with lots of examples. We give you phrases you can say in different situations and advice on why and how to use them.

So, it’s pretty easy to greet someone in English, isn’t it? We can say “good morning” or “hello” or just “hi.” And we might add something like “my name is Tim Smith,” or a question like “how’s it going?” But what’s the difference? How do we choose which greeting to use? Well, in business, like in life, it depends on the situation. That includes who we’re talking to and where we’re having the conversation. So let’s go through three situations and practice some appropriate ways of saying hello.

  1. @Wen great question… “set-up” refers to the organization or layout of something, in this case the layout and decoration of the room for the party. And “quite the…” means impressive or very good, for example, Jenny is quite the presenter, meaning Jenny is a very good presenter.

    So what Amber means when she says, “Quite the set-up in here isn’t it?” is the decoration of the room is very impressive.

    Thanks for asking this question Wen, I’m sure a lot of learners weren’t sure about this too.
