Did you notice how I used the shortened version of "Good morning?"
おはよう。(Ohayō.)
In informal situations, おはようございます is often shortened to おはよう. おはよう.
Please note that this abbreviated form should be avoided when speaking with people whom you don't know very well, who are older than you, or who may be regarded as your superior.
You should be aware of this shortened greeting, but you won't need it for this lesson.
