Hello

Hello, is the most common greeting in English.

It is a bit boring, but it is very safe to use, the best response to hello is, hello.

However most native English speakers will add an extra greeting to hello.


How…

In English it is always polite to add a few more words after hello, most of those words start with the word how.

Hello, how are you?
Hello, how are you doing?

Regardless how you feel, happy or depressed, it is normal to respond to how questions with positive replies, and to ask the other person the same how question.

I am well, how are you? Or I am well, and you?
I am good, and how are you doing? Or I am good, and you?

Hola, Cómo estás?
14 saludos en Inglés que tienes que saber

¿Cuando se dice ‘hello’ y cuando deberíamos decir ‘Howdy’?
Saludar a la gente es fácil, ¿cómo hacerlo correctamente?
De hecho, hay muchas maneras de saludar en inglés.

Algunos saludos son obvios y conocidos, como ‘hello’, y algunos son muy locales, como ‘story’.

En esta publicación de blog, te ayudaremos a aprender 14 saludos en inglés que puedes usar en situaciones sociales y en negocios.

El nivel de este blog post es A2 – Pre-Intermediate
El tiempo de lectura es de 6 minutos

Hello

‘Hello’, es el saludo más común en inglés.
Es un poco aburrido, pero no te equivocas al usarlo, la mejor respuesta para ‘Hello’es,

‘Hello’. Sin embargo, la mayoría de los hablantes nativos de inglés agregarán un saludo extra a hello.

¿Cómo?

En inglés, siempre es educado agregar algunas palabras más después de hello, la mayoría de esas palabras comienzan con la palabra how.

Hello, how are you?
Hello, how are you doing?

Independientemente de cómo se sienta uno, feliz o deprimido, es normal responder a preguntas con respuestas positivas, y preguntarle a la otra persona lo mismo.

I am well, how are you? Or I am well, and you?
I am good, and how are you doing? Or I am good, and you?

How – y algo más

Otras cuestiones sobre qué se usa con hello o por solas son:

How is everything?
How are things?
How is life?
How is your day?
How is your day going?

Estos saludos son informales y no deben usarse en reuniones de negocios, o cuando se encuentra con alguien por primera vez.

La respuesta correcta es generalmente positiva, seguida de una pregunta sobre el otro interlocutor usando la coletille “y tú?” y “usted?”:

Saludos con ‘what’
Los saludos con ‘what’ son informales y se deberían usar con familiares y amigos.
No hace falta decir ‘hello’ antes de los saludos con ‘what’

What is up?
What is new?
What is going on?

Las respuestas standard a los saludos con ‘what’ son normalmente frases negativas seguidas por la coletilla “and you”:

Nothing, and you?
Not much, and you?

Good or Nice’?
‘Good and Nice’ se pueden combinar con ” see you ” o ” meet you ” para hacer saludos.

En situaciones informales combinamos ‘good’ con ” see you “, normalmente ponemos ‘hello’ antes de Good o Nice.

Hello, nice to see you.
Hello, good to see you.

La correcta respuesta es repetir el saludo y añadir ‘too’

Nice to see you too.
Good to see you too.

Cuando good y nice se combinan con ” meet you”, la situación es normalmente un negocio, consulta la sección de saludos en negocios.

Long

Si no se ha visto a una persona en mucho tiempo, se puede usar uno de los siguientes saludos:

Long time, no see, how are you?
Long time, how are you?
It has been a while, how are you?

Estos saludos se pueden utilizar en situaciones familiares y formales, la respuesta normal es en positivo, seguido por: ‘and you’.

I am great, and you?
Very well, and you, how are you?

Saludos en situaciones de negocios
Es importante no cometer errores en los entornos de negocios, si los saludos son incorrectos, se podría generar una imagen negativa.

El saludo básico en estas situaciones suele ser con la palabra good.

Good Morning.
Good Afternoon.
Good Evening.

Cuando se usa el saludo con ‘good’ en negocios, no se debería utilizar la palabra ‘hello’
La respuesta más simple y apropiada es repetir el saludo:

Good Morning
Good Afternoon
Good Evening

¿Es correcto en negocios usar ‘good’ o ‘nice’?
Como ya hemos dicho, se puede usar “good” y “nice” con ” to meet you ” en inglés comercial. Sólo se debe usar cuando quedemos con una persona por primera vez.
Se puede usar solo o con Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening

Good Morning, nice to meet you.
Good Morning, good to meet you.

La respuesta standard es repetir el saludo y añadir ‘too’.

Good morning, nice to meet you, too.
Good Morning, good to meet you, too,

How do you?
El saludo más formalin inglés es “How do you do”.
La respuesta correcta es, “How do you do?”

Para acabar unos saludos en argot
Si citamos todos los saludos en argot de inglés, estarías leyendo este blog durante meses, aquí nombraremos unos cuantos.

En Inglaterra, se puede utilizar el saludo:
All Right?
Es un saludo muy ‘inglés’ y la respuesta correcta es:
All Right?

Good Day mate
La respuesta correcta es:

English wars: School, Primary School, High School, College, University

Do you go to school or university?
Did you go to school or university?
What about college?

In this lesson, I will explain what words are used in different English speaking countries to describe the place where you are educated.

Click to listen to this blog.

Just the other day in one of our online classrooms I was teaching student in Slovakia.
She likes to watch movies and tv shows in English on Netflix, and she told me that she had spent some time watching British and American teen movies and was totally confused with the words used to describe schools and universities.

Before I continue let me explain that a teen movie or tv show is a movie or tv show that is made for teenagers.
Back to the main lesson, my client asked me to explain the difference between school, primary school, secondary school, high school, college and university, all words she heard watching Netflix.

What school did you go to?

School, Primary School, High School, College, University, Teacher
It is an interesting question because the answer depends on what English speaking country we are talking about, as different words are used to describe the same place depending on the country.

What is school called in The United Kingdom?

  • Between the age of 6 and 11 all children go to primary school.
  • Between the age of 11 and 16 all teenagers go to secondary school.
  • Between the age of 16 and 18 all teenagers go to college.
  • After college all students go to university.

When teenagers leave secondary school, their final exams are called “O” levels.
When teenagers leave college, their final exams are called “A” levels.
When students leave university, their final exams are called degrees.

What is school called in The Republic of Ireland?

  • Between the age of 6 and 11 all children go to primary school.</li/>
  • Between the age of 11 and 17 all teenagers go to secondary school.
  • After secondary school all students go to university.

However, in Ireland people sometimes use the word college instead of university.

Speaker 1: “My brother is in university in Dublin.”
Speaker 2: “Really, my sister is in college in Cork.”

In this exchange both speakers mean university.
When teenagers leave secondary school, their final exams are called “leaving certificate”.
When students leave university, their final exams are called degrees.

What is school called in The United States?

School, Primary School, High School, College, University Student

  • Between the age of 6 and 11 all children go to school.
  • Between the age of 11 and 17 all teenagers go to high school.
  • After high school all students go to college.

In America, they use the word college to describe third level education, but they also use the word university to describe the best colleges in the country, such as Yale and Harvard.

When teenagers leave high school, their final exams are called diplomas.
When students leave college, their final exams are called degrees.

Is that it?

School, Primary School, High School, College, University Graduation

There you have it, school and primary school are the same thing, secondary school, high school and college are the same thing, and university and college are also the same thing, depending on which country you are in.

Grammar Hack – Much, Many, Some, Any, A Few, A Little.

Grammar Hack – Much, Many, Some, Any, A Few, A Little.

Grammar Hack – Much, Many, Some, Any, A Few, A Little.

Grammar Hack – Much, Many, Some, Any, A Few, A Little.

Is it possible to avoid using much, many, some, any, a few, and a little?

If you have problems remembering your much from your many, or your a few from a little, read on and I will show a grammar hack to help you with quantifiers.

Why explain this grammar hack for some, any, much, many, a few, a little?

A few weeks ago I was teaching a Russian politician some English here in London.

He is a man in a hurry, and didn’t want to spend time learning English grammar.

Click to listen to this blog.

Unfortunately for me I had try to help him improve his grammar because sometimes he didn’t make sense.
When we started to review, much, many, a few, a little, some and any he really started to get frustrated.

“English” he said, “Why is it so complicated, it should be simple, just like Russian”

What could I say? I told him it was Shakespeare’s fault, and that English was simple before Shakespeare started changing the language.

Grammar Hack – Much, Many, Some, Any, A Few, A Little.

Now I am not sure if it was Shakespeare who decided to separate our nouns into countable and uncountable, but in English we do, and it is not difficult to identify what is countable and what is an uncountable noun.

What are countable and uncountable nouns?

If you can physically count it, then its countable, such as chairs, pens, people and so on.
If you cant physically count it then its uncountable, such as water, air, gossip and so on.

Grammar Hack – Much, Many, Some, Any, A Few, A Little.

Postive Sentences

When we make positive sentences for both countable and uncountable nouns we use some:

  • There are some people in the room
  • There is some water in the fridge.

Negative Sentences

When we make negative sentences for both countable and uncountable nouns we use any:

  • There aren’t any people in the room.
  • There isn’t any water in the fridge.

Question Sentences

When we ask questions for both countable and uncountable nouns we can use any:

  • Are there any people in the room?
  • Is there any water in the fridge?

Questions with some!

And just to make it confusing when you know the answer to your question is yes, then you can use some in your question.

  • Are there some people in the room? – You know the answer is yes.
  • Is there some water in the fridge? – You know the answer is yes

A few & a little

Grammar Hack – Much, Many, Some, Any, A Few, A Little.

When we are talking about is small amounts, in positive sentences, then we can use a few and a little.

  • A few for countable nouns – It’s bad, there are only a few people in the cinema.
  • A little for uncountable nouns – I only have a little water left.

[yikes-mailchimp form=”1″]

What about much and many?

We use many in questions and negatives for countable nouns.

  • How many people are in the room?
  • There aren’t many people in the room.

We use much in questions and negatives for uncountable nouns.

  • How much water is in the fridge?
  • There isn’t much water in the fridge.

Top Tip

Remember when you make questions and negatives, it is your choice if you want to use any, much or many.

What is the grammar hack?

Now you are probably thinking, “Feargal you promised us a grammar hack not a lesson on how to use much, many, some, any, a few and a little, what did you tell that Russian?”



I taught him three simple words.

“A Lot Of”

You can use a lot of with countable and uncountable nouns in positive, negative and questions, all you must remember is to put the verb to be in the correct form before a lot of.

Countable Nouns:

  • Positive – There are a lot of people in the room.
  • Question – Are there a lot of people in the room?
  • Negative – There aren’t a lot of people in the room.

Uncountable Nouns:

  • Positive – There is a lot of water in the fridge.
  • Question – Is there a lot of water in the fridge?
  • Negative – There isn’t a lot of water in the fridge.

A lot of – Saves a lot of time remembering the difference between much, many, some, any, a few, a little.
