What is Good evening?

“Good evening” is a greeting just like “good morning” and “good noon.” Their distinction is just time.

“Good evening” is used to greet someone politely or say “hello” to someone when you meet during the evening. Also, it is used as a farewell.

For example, if you are just walking around and then you meet someone on the road in the evening, you just simply say “good evening” and continue walking.

Some people use “evening” or “hello” if they don’t want to sound formal or informal. Additionally, “good evening” is used after 6 p.m. when there is no sun.

Good evening meaning

What is Good evening in Tagalog?

Good evening in Filipino is directly translated as “magandang gabe.”

magandang gabe
magandang – good
gabi – evening

However, the Tagalog of “good” is “mabuti,” while “maganda” is translated as “beautiful.”

In this phrase we used the adjective “maganda” to describe the evening. As you noticed the “ng” in magandang it is called linker because the word maganda is ended with vowel (a) so that is why we used ng.

So, it ended up being “beautiful evening” because we wanted to describe gabi, or evening. As a result, “good evening” is translated as “magandang gabe.”

Ang magandang gabi ay ginagamit bilang pagbati sa isang tao pagsapit ng gabe.

Samantala, ginagamit naman ang “magandang gabi po” kapag mas matanda ang iyong kinakausap or when you are talking to older people.
