What is "ciao"?
‘Ciao’ tends to be used exclusively to mean ‘bye’ in English speaking countries. In Italy you use ciao both to say ‘hi’ and ‘bye’. Note that in Italian there is no direct translation for ‘hello’ – you use ‘ciao’, ‘buongiorno‘, or ‘buona sera‘.
The Spanish equivalent is ‘chau‘, which is derived from the Italian. ‘Ciao’ is used internationally.
