背景: Panpan and Tom are still walking on campus. Then they encounter Panpan′s teacher Mr Wang.

王老师:你们好吗?
盼盼:我们都很好。您身体好吗?
王老师:也很好,谢谢!
盼盼:王老师,再见!
王老师:再见!

Tom:Panpan, You seemed to use another greeting form. I feel a little confused.
盼盼:Haha…Don′t worry! I′ll tell you the difference. What we learned last time are more common used. The sentence"您身体好吗?"also means "How are you?". But it is used to greet old people or elders. "您"is a respectful form of "你". It is normally reserved for old people or elders. To show politeness, one may extend its use to people of his own generation,especially at the first meeting.
Tom:Oh,I see. So when I pay a visit to your parents tomorrow, I can greet them with “您身体好吗”.
盼盼:Yes. By the way, do you understand “谢谢” and “再见”?
Tom: Yeah, they are so easy. “谢谢” means “thanks” and “再见” means “goodbye”.
盼盼:Good. Let′s have a review.
(重新放一遍刚才两段问候的对话)

王老师:你们好吗?
盼盼:我们都很好。您身体好吗?
王老师:也很好,谢谢!
