Goodbye Everyday Dialog.

Just like in every language,
there are simple definitions
and colloquial speech.
In American English,
the word “goodbye,” is
not commonly used
in everyday conversations.
It might be
perfect translation
into your native language,
but the word
“goodbye” is not
commonly used every day.
Especially when we compare
it to British English.
The word “goodbye”
in American English
has a finality.
Final. Yes?
I’ll show you some examples
here in a minute.
The word “goodbye”
is extremely formal
and should not
be used in
everyday speech.
There are many other
ways to depart
in the English language.
In other words,
when you’re leaving a room.
Something like that.
It’s, most of the time,
better not to use
that word “goodbye.”
Ask your teacher
for more examples
and ways to be polite.
in the English language.
Now. Here are some
“Negative goodbye examples.”
“Goodbye, Sally.”
“I never want
to see you again.”
“Goodbye forever.”
In other words,
I don’t want to see you
anymore! Goodbye!”
That’s it. You’re done.
In American English.
When you use the word
“goodbye,”
often people are
offended because they
are worried.
Because they don’t
know what they said.
Maybe they said something.
It was offensive and now
the other person’s angry.
If you are
learning English
and you use the word “goodbye,”
hopefully the other person
will understand that,
you’re an early learner of English.
And you’re just trying to
speak the best English possible.
I never want to see
you again,
“goodbye.” You see?
So, in this case,
“goodbye” is used
when we don’t want
to see anybody
or a person anymore.
Bob your job performance is
terrible! You’re fired!
Goodbye!
So. Goodbye forever!
Bob just got fired.
Oh my gosh.
Terminated, whatever.
I will never use your
services again!
Goodbye! You see?
In this context.
I bought your services.
I use your services.
I found your services
services to be
unacceptable and therefore,
I don’t want to use
them again. Ever!
Your taxi service
is unsatisfactory!
Goodbye! Goodbye forever!
I will never use
your taxi service again.
I hope you have a safe
flight to Siberia! Goodbye! [Laugh]
My wife’s laughing over here.
She’s heard me do this
a thousand times.
My point is, look
you’re getting on a plane
and somebody says “goodbye.”
It means “goodbye forever.”
Well, we hope that.
We hope the person is
coming back.
And we hope they do have
a safe flight.
I wouldn’t say “goodbye.”
Here are some positive
“goodbye” examples.
“See you” tomorrow, Larisa.
I love you!
I want to see you again!
I wouldn’t say,
“Goodbye” Larisa, I love you. [Laugh]
It just wouldn’t be
very good. So.
If I say goodbye to my wife
or anyone, yeah?
It’s gonna be final.
“Bye for now.”
Thank you for a nice dinner!
I’m very thankful
and appreciative. So.
“Bye for now,”
instead of “goodbye.”
Thank you for a nice dinner.
I wouldn’t do that,
until tomorrow.
I enjoyed meeting with
you today, very much.
I had a good experience.
“Bye bye” kids!
Be good at school
and study hard!
I’ll see you after school. Right?
I wouldn’t say,
“Goodbye” kids.
Call me when
you graduate. [Laugh]
I wouldn’t do that. [Laugh]
Hey! Have a nice day!
See you tonight!
I know you’re coming [Laugh]
home tonight. So.
You’d say that to the kids. Okay?
Not “goodbye.”
Have a nice flight!
See you soon!
I know you are
returning. Right?
Your friend. Your colleague.
Your husband, wife,
anybody. Right?
Hey! Have a nice flight!
“See you soon.”
When you return.
Don’t say “goodbye.”
Thanks for a wonderful evening!
Take it easy!
I enjoyed the dinner!
Thanks for a
wonderful evening!
“Thanks!”
I could say:
“thank you!”
Something like that.
Hey! Have a good one!
See you in the morning!
Instead of,
“Goodbye, see you in the morning.”
Probably not a good idea.
Because that person is probably
not coming back.
