I went through the entire thread, but couldn't find answer to this: What is the difference between "Auf Wiedersehen" and "Bis Bald" ? When can they be used interchangeably, and when not?
I understand from the discussion Auf Wiedersehen is more of a formal greeting. Is Bis Bald to be used with friends, and not with Bosses? Someone please explain.
Bis bald=see you later, auf Wiedersehen=good bye If you see somone AGAIN , one or two hours later, or later in evening, next day, next week, next month, or someone sure you will meet again sometime, you say "bis Bald" Someone you are not going to see again, or not sure you meet again ( like strengers), you say "auf Wiedersehen" Another case, depent on situation, someone you use "du", you say bis bald. Someone you use "Sie" , you use " auf Wiedersehen" " Tschüss" is another word much more common for friends to say good bye
