Essential Greetings

You just learned some greetings:

ciao, salve hello
buon giorno good morning
buon pomeriggio good afternoon
buona sera good evening
buona notte good night
buona giornata have a good day
buona serata have a good evening
arrivederci good-bye (infml.)
arrivederLa good-bye (fml.)
a presto see you soon
a dopo see you later

Did you notice that there are two expressions for good-bye, either arrivederci or arrivederLa?

Note: Very often people tend to use arrivederci in formal contexts, too.

Another informal—and very common—way to say good-bye is ciao, better if repeated twice: ciao ciao! (bye-bye!)
