Xin chao, chao, oi


Explanation:
Hi Ashley,
The Vietnamese word "chao" is the almost universal greeting.
Xin chao <personal pronoun> = Formal
Chao <personal pronoun> = Informal

Another word sometimes used to gain attention is "Oi!", and can be used in the sense of "Hey!".

Hope that helps.

E^!


Explanation:
"E^" is used to shout for the attention of stranger(s) who is (are) inferior then you. Disrespectful to use on someone who is socially equal or older than you.
For example: Shouting at your grade school students is OK.
