Greetings used in the Russian language
Hi! I've learned some basic Russian greetings like a simple hi: привет to
как вы поживаете and
where I'm under the impression that the first one is a formal one, and the second is informal (similar to the difference between "Sie" and "Du" in German or "Usted" and "Tu" in Spanish... (that's why I love English, you use "you" for everyone! ha ha)
Having said that, could you give me several variations? What is actually used in Russia or Russian speaking countries? Among friends, relatives, people you don't know that much, etc.? Thank you!
I'm looking for variations like:
Hey! How are you? (both formal and informal)
How's it going?
Nice meeting you (both formal and informal)
And also how to say good bye both formal and informal (apart from dasvedania)
See you later!
Have a good one!
Pleased to have met you. Hope to see you again (more formal)
And also plural, for example, a "how are you?" if you meet, for example, two or more people you know, and two people you don't know (husband and wife, brothers, sisters)
