Hi, when meeting my old friends I shake hands with them and hug if this is a woman.Have a good day.

Meeting some old friend of mine we just shake hands and hug most of the times. If that’s a woman, we can kiss. Never saw those who bow each other after long leaving. May be in Japan people do it.
The episodes became shorter and there are two things in it. First, it don’t take more time to do letting you learn some other part of English, but the same time many interesting topics are empty.

I just want to say I like Ravi and Tess more than Adam and Rob. I wish you continue the podcast as before with Tess and Ravi .

when I see my friends after a long time I hug and kiss them . but when I see them everyday I just say hello.

Hi there, I'm Kaan. I'm from Turkey. When we see each other we usually hug and kiss and also when we say goodbye we do samethings. Especially ıf you see people of parents we kiss each other more than normal.

Hello everyone,

When I see a close friend, I hug him, kiss him and I say "hola". But If the person is not close, I shake hands and I say "buenos dias" good morning for example.

I live in Italy, when I meet a close friend, woman or man that i don't meet from many time, I Kiss and hug them; but if I meet them every day I say only "ciao" or "grüß Gott" if I am in Tyrol. If I meet someone who is not a close friend, I only shake her or his hand, and I say "good morning" or "good afternoon" .

My "hello" depends from friends What I meeting now. I can kiss their or just hang out. Also depends from my mood

Hello,in my country Yemen when i see friend i say ALSALAM ALIKOM with shake hands some time if not see our friends from long time we hug them.

In Saudi Arabia , we say "Alsalam Alaikum" as Hello word. We often shake hands in a public life , sometimes we don't meet each others for along time so we hug and kiss .
