Hi Linda,


Thank you for posting.😉


In the South of Germany you will hear "Auf Wiedersehen" a lot, roughly translated

"May we see each other again."

As you go further north, people say "Bis zum nächsten Mal!", which is very close to

"See you next time."


If you have any further questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Hello Angie,


Thank you for an interesting question.👍 I had never thought

about the meaning that much myself to be honest.


In English there are "goodbye" and "farewell", and "so long". From what I have

found in my search, "so long" is a bit antiquated now. The main difference

between "goodbye" and "farewell" is that when using farewell you don't expect to see

the other person again, or at least not for a very long time.

As for "Mach's gut" (short for "Mach es gut"), it is as you correctly noticed not a literal

translation, but it can be used in either of the above situations. A more literal translation

might be "Take care!" (in whatever you may be doing).


If you have any further questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Reinhard

See you next time is often used in the shops here in the US. Is there something similar in Germany or Austria?

Hi Mel,


Thank you for your comment.

You are right. "Bis morgen" is a very common

way to say Goodbye. I am surprised myself. But remember,

there are many ways to say Goodbye in most languages.

If you wanted to list them all, it might take more than one lesson.😉

As for "Guten Tag", that is a greeting and means "Hello", "How are you",

"How do you do?" etc..


If you have any further questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Reinhard
