6 Saying goodbye
The most common expressions for saying goodbye in Spanish are given in Table 3.
|¡Hasta luego!||See you later.|
|¡Hasta mañana!||See you tomorrow.|
|¡Chao! / ¡Chaíto! (LAm)||Bye!|
Many people tend to reply using the expression that they have just heard. If someone says, “¡Hasta luego!” the other speaker often replies “¡Hasta luego!” too.
Listen to the following people saying goodbye to their friends. Match the person’s name to the expression that he or she uses.
Using the following two lists, match each numbered item with the correct letter.
- 1 = d
