Hi, there. Meet and greet Rijal & Nisa. Let’s learn English together!🙂



When we meet people, first thing we do is greet them. Muslims greet each other by saying “assalamu alaikum”, and replied by the other by saying “wa alaikum salam”. Different people greet differently, the most common is by asking how you’re doing. For example, “how do you do?” or “how are you?” You can reply by telling them how you’re doing. For example, if you are in good health, you can say, “I’m fine, thank you.” Otherwise, you can tell them how you really feel. For example, when Nisa asked Rijal how he is, he replied, “actually, I’m not feeling well.”

We also use greetings that correspond to the time of speaking:
In the morning (0:00 – 12.00), we say “good morning.”
In the afternoon (12.01 – 18.00), we say “good afternoon.”
In the evening (18.01 – 24.00), we say “good evening.”
When we leave, we say a farewell, “good bye” or “good night.”
