    "you guys"

    While conducting a class, is it OK to say "you guys" to the participants to make the atmosphere less offical & relaxed ? If not, any expression to replace "you all" for public speaking in a friendly/warm manner?

    It depends a little bit on how old you and your students are but I think you could say "you guys".
