You shouldn't greet the President with a 'Hi, buddy!', and your best friend would think you are a bit strange if you gave him or her a formal greeting. Knowing the right thing to say is very important, especially when meeting someone for the first time!
你当然不能跟总统用 "嗨，哥们儿。"来打招呼。 而如果你和你好朋友用太正式的方式来打招呼，他会觉得你很奇怪。所以，用正确的方式来打招呼是很重要的，特别是当你和某人第一次见面时。
