  • am I right?

  • And that starts with greeting everyone at work

  • in the right way.

  • Keep watching this video

  • to make sure that the way you're greeting others

  • at work is actually correct

  • because if you're wrong,

  • that might be a bit of an issue.

  • (dramatic music)

  • (playful music)

  • When you're working in a professional situation,

  • such as in an office,

  • it's best to use formal greetings.

  • Keep in mind that certain professionals

  • have their own titles,

  • such as a doctor or a professor.

  • - I'm Peter, by the way.

  • - Dr. Strange.

  • - Oh, you're using your made-up names.

  • Um, I'm Spider-Man then.

  • - As you get to know your coworkers,

  • you may start to use informal terms

  • or even nicknames if you become close.

  • However, you should always use formal phrases

  • with your superiors and clients

  • as a form of respect.

  • Today I have five formal phrases

  • for you to use when addressing others

  • in an office setting.

  • (lively music)

  • First, we have Mr. plus last name.

  • We use this formal greeting for males.

  • - Goodbye, Mr. Bond.

  • - [Cherie] Next, we have Mrs. plus last name.

  • We use this formal greeting for, you guessed it, women.

  • However, Mrs. is traditionally used

  • with married or widowed women.

  • - Do you want these things delivered, Mr. and Mrs. Geller?

  • - Now, I'm sure you're all wondering,

  • how do I address a woman who isn't married

  • and isn't widowed?

  • Well, the term that we use for that is Ms. plus last name.

  • Or first name.

  • Typically, if the situation is very formal,

  • like in business or if the person is an authority figure,

  • you generally use Ms. and their last name.

  • - The Swedish nightingale, Ms. Jenny Lind. (clapping)

  • - Dr. plus last name.

  • We use this greeting

  • when addressing a medical doctor

  • or someone who holds a PhD.

  • The highest level of education.

  • - I'm Dr. Gregory House.

  • You can call me Greg.

  • - If it's truth you're interested in,

  • Dr. Tyree's philosophy class is right down the hall.

  • - Our final way to address someone in an office

  • is by calling them Professor plus last name.

  • In a university setting,

  • most professors are addressed in this way

  • instead of Ms., Mr. and Mrs.

  • - Excuse me, sir.

  • Where's Professor Lupin?

  • - And there you have it, guys.
