    Hello.
    In Chinese there are several different ways to say hello. The most popular expression is ni2 hao3. ni3 means 'you'. Hao3 means 'good'. Together 'you-good': ni2 hao3. Ni2 hao3 can be used at any time, on any occasion and by anybody.It can be used on either a stranger or a person you've already known. Is it similar to "hi" in English? For instance, when I say "ni2 hao3", you can respond with a "ni2 hao3".

    pronunciation:
    The pronunciation of ni3 is similar to that of the English word 'knee', and hao3 similar to 'how'.
