After viewing the video, students will be able to identify greetings, farewells/goodbyes and expressions of courtesy used in basic conversations as well as distinguish appropriate expressions used based on the time of day.  Students will also be able to identify other expressions used to introduce themselves and others.

Note:  Be sure to repeat the phrases when prompted to do so (by Cinthia) in order to practice pronunciation.
