FOCUS ON COMMUNICATION

The following two expressions do not mean die same
1. ‘How are you?’ and 2. ‘How do you do?’

1. While speaking to a familiar person, we ask, ‘How are
you?’ and the response will be ‘I am fine’.

2. When a person is introduced to a stranger he/she will say
’How do you do?’ The response is also ‘How do you do?
Other-ways of strangers greeting each other is to say ‘glad’
/’pleased’ /’nice to meet you’.

• When someone is in distress, we say, ‘How sad!’
When someone is sick, we say, ‘Wish you/him speedy
recovery’.

• Between Iriends. saying ‘How are you?’ itself becomes a
form of greeting.
