    Hello

    Would you help me to understand the following phrases?

    #1 Here it it.
    #2 Here you are.
    #3 Here you go.

    #4 Here we are.

    I suppose you use #1~3 when you give someone something. (Is that right? )
    Do you use them in the same way? Or differently?

    Besides that I don't understand how you use #4 well. I'll be happy if I get some examples.

    Thank you.

    #1 should be 'ít is', but they are all used when giving. However, 'the third wouldn't be used in all situations- a shop assistant is unlikely to say it to a cusrtomer when handing change, say.

    #4 is used when arriving somewhere.
