    Default what does it mean?

    Dear teachers,

    When I watch an American film, I always heard something pronounce like 'Chiao' (I don't know whether I spell it correctly or not) when people depart from each other. I think it should be 'Bye'. What does this 'Chiao'
    mean? Does it 'Bye'?

    Thank you.

    Jiang

    It's Italian, and it's spelled ciao. It does mean Bye.
