English term or phrase: hello
hello, how are you
miguel
Labas...
Explanation:
It depends on how many persons you are addressing.
If one, then you say:
Labas, kaip sekasi?
Also, quite often you would hear:
Sveikas, (for masculine)
Sveika, (for feminine)
Sveiki, (for plural).
Informally, people would often say
... , kai gyvuoji?
... , kaip tavo reikalai?
