 LANGUAGE NOTES


The greetings good morning/good afternoon/good evening are used at different times of the day to greet people. “Good evening” is often used after 6 p.m. or generally when the sun has set


“Good night” is not a greeting: It is used when leaving a place or group of people. Thank you and good night!/Good night, and see you tomorrow.


When people meet in the United States, it is customary for them to shake hands. A handshake should be firm and usually lasts for about two to three seconds — which allows enough time to say “Nice to meet you.”


“Don’t mention it” is another way of saying “You’re welcome.” The phrase “You are welcome” is more formal. However, responses such as Don’t mention it./No problem./ Happy to help. are informal ways of responding to a thank you.  


Grammar notes:

To introduce someone to someone else, we use the determiner this. This is my friend. This is my brother. This is my professor.

Would you mind+ verb-ing (gerund).....? 
No, not at all. (= you agree to help)

Present continuous example 

She is thinking. This means she is thinking now and this week. We use the present continuous for an action that is happening now or later (for sure) in the future because we have decided to do so.

Are you going to the job interview tomorrow?
Of course, I need that job.

Examples:

Ana: Would you mind helping me find a good laptop?
Joe: No, not at all. 

Ana: Would you mind taking care of my child while I am at the supermarket?
Joe:  I don't mind. No problem. Or, no, not at all.
