How to greet each other?
When you meet a friend on the street, it is appropriate to stop and exchange a few words of greetings. Usually people will say "Hello" or "Hi", and sometimes they change the greeting words into questions like "How are you?", "What's up?", "How is everything going?" and similar questions. Do not try to give a detailed answer because people do not expect a story of your life. They are actually just showing their friendship to you.
When you meet each other for the first time, however, an appropriate greeting on most occasions is to say "Nice to meet you" or "It is nice to meet you". Naturally you speak the sentence with a smile on your face.
On certain very formal occasions, like when you are introduced to a very important person, you usually shake hands with the person if he\she extends his\her hand, and you would say "How do you do?" at the meantime. Remember, the answer for that is also "How do you do?", with you tone falling down a little bit.
