We say hello usually. We hug when we meet people after a really long time. I think the podcast was really good.

First of all I want to thank all british council team for this help.About me when I meet my friend I huge them and shak thier hands

when we greet our friends or anyone , we say "alslam alikum" that it means " peace to you " and we always shake hands  and kiss on cheek and  but  if we don't see each other for ages , we sometimes hug. some people like to hug each other and some other do not like it ! these are in my country.

in my country there are many tribes. each tribe has his ways to says hello. my tribe is baoule; we don't bow  and we don't shake  hands. we say good morning or good afternoon and ask for news. when we wake up in the morning, even if we slept in the same bedroom we ask for news; it is very important;

Hello. I am from Bangladesh. It varies from person to person. If i am going to see  my best friend then we scream with joy to see each other and then hug each other. besides, if we are going to see the elder relatives then we usually greet them by saying Salam which means Peace. and ask about their health. that's all we do actually. Incase of meeting with a stranger we normally say hello with a slight smile. :)

In Russia, if we meet friends, we say "Privet!" (Hi!) and hug, if we meet close friends we hug and kiss. If we meet co-workers and colleagues, we just shake our hands or only say "Hello!".

I think it'll be better if the podcasts are longer, I don't know, what do you think people?
