When we speak to co-workers, friends or family in a social situation, some common expressions are used again and again.

This is very common for when we say "Hello" and "Good-bye".


  1. Cheers!
  2. See you tomorrow!
  3. Can you help me with this exercise?
  4. Can I help you?
  5. I'm sorry I'm late.
