In the fifth lesson we will look at some basic pleasantries you can use in daily conversation.
5.01 How is your health? - sentence pattern for a basic conversational pleasantry
马特 Mǎtè shows his respect for 张老师 Zhāng lǎoshī by using the respectful form of the pronoun you, 您 nín, as well as by using the teacher's title, 老师 lǎoshī while speaking to her.
Vocabulary point:5.04 See you tomorrow! - dialogue between two people of equal social status
身体 shēntǐ means health. On its own, 身 shēn means body.
谢谢 xièxie means thank you. Adding a pronoun to the end makes it more polite, as in 谢谢你 xièxie nǐ.
再见 zàijiàn means good bye, although it literally means see you again.
