Good afternoon, good night, or good morning depending on where you are in the world! 😅 How do you say goodbye to your friends? Here are different ways to say goodbye in English:
This phrase is quite formal and very emotional-sounding. It also seems very final. It's the type of thing that two lovers in a movie might say if they're never going to see each other again. You probably won't use it often in daily life.
This phrase is still a little bit formal, but not quite as formal as "Have a good day." Use this when you're not going to see someone again for at least a week.
"Later!" is a cool, casual way to say goodbye. Men often use "Later!" when speaking with each other. You often follow "Later!" with something like "man", "bro", "dude", or "dear".
"So long" isn't very common for actually saying "goodbye" to someone, but you may find it sometimes in news headlines and other places.
5️⃣Peace! / Peace out.
"Peace!" as a way to say goodbye comes from hip-hop music and culture. It sounds very casual. "Peace out" is the same but it was popular in the early 1990s. Today it sounds very dated.
