After listening to this lesson, you can say “Good-bye” or “See you” in Korean. In polite/formal Korean, there are two basic ways to say Good-bye.

One is when you are the one who is leaving. And the other is when you are the one who is staying.

If you are leaving, and the other person is (or the other people are) staying, you can say:
안녕히 계세요. [an-nyeong-hi gye-se-yo]

If you are staying, an the other person is (or the other people are) leaving, you can say:
안녕히 가세요. [an-nyeong-hi ga-se-yo]

    So when both of you are leaving and you’re going to say goodbye, is it 안녕히 계세요. [an-nyeong-hi gye-se-yo] or 안녕히 가세요. [an-nyeong-hi ga-se-yo]?

      You say 안녕히 가세요 because no one is staying
