背景:Tom is an American student who cannot speak Chinese at all. Now he is walking with his Chinese friend Panpan on campus. Then one of Panpan′s friend Xiaoyun come to say hello.

小云:盼盼,你好。
盼盼:你好,小云。

Tom: Panpan, I heard “nǐ hǎo”. Is it a form of greeting in Chinese?
盼盼:Yeah. You are so smart . “你好”means “Hello” ,“How do you do”. The response to this greeting form is also “nǐ hǎo(你好)”。
Tom:Oh, I get it.

At this time, Panpan′s another friend Dawei came.
大伟:盼盼,你好吗?
盼盼:我很好,你呢?
大伟:也很好。

Tom:I heard “nǐ hǎo” again. But it sounds a little different.
盼盼:Dawei said “nǐ hǎo ma?(你好吗?)”, not “nǐ hǎo(你好)”. “你好吗” means “How are you?”. You can answer “Wǒ hěn hǎo(我很好)”. It means “I′m fine”. You also can use “还可以” as a reply which means “Not bad”. “你呢?” means” And(how are)you?”
Tom:I know. Thank you. So I can express my greetings in Chinese now.
盼盼:Good!Let′s have a review.
