Thanks alot Diana. You're really helpful.

One Doubt - What's the meaning of "Hi there", "Hello there" ? When to use that words?What does "Hi there" mean? When should I use those words

Good question! It means exactly the same as "Hi" or "Hello". It is just a little more informal...and you usually use it when you are farther away from the person or thing you are addressing.

It is also commonly used when you greet a pet. Imagine that your open your front door and your dog is waiting happily for you...you could say "Hello there". It implies a bit of distance...so the dog would be a little bit away from you.

You can also say "Hey there" which is very common.
