The phrases you learned in this lesson are an important part of your language learning journey. However, as mentioned above, these phrases are often used with someone you haven't met in a while to show your concern about their well-being.
When seeing a friend you meet often, you might just use a simple greeting.
Then you would follow that with a question related to small talk, such as "Did you eat?"
吃了吗?(Chī le ma?)
This is the end of this lesson.
Remember, these Can Do lessons are about learning practical language skills.
