One is when you are the one who is leaving. And the other is when you are the one who is staying.

If you are leaving, and the other person is (or the other people are) staying, you can say:
안녕히 계세요. [an-nyeong-hi gye-se-yo]

If you are staying, an the other person is (or the other people are) leaving, you can say:
안녕히 가세요. [an-nyeong-hi ga-se-yo]

    Any tips on remembering the formal parts of the phrases so far?
    an-nyeong, and gam-sa I can do as I can pair them to their English conterparts in my head… But the ha/hi-se-yo and hap-ni-da parts I either get mixed up or forget.

    I loved the lesson. It is very clear and easy. I have been learning Korean for a while with Yonsei University online. It is my passion to learn languages. I fell in love with Korean culture like 2 years ago, and learned to cook some Korean dishes wish I love ha ha. I am from Puerto Rico, I have been struggling a little though, my language suppose to be spanish but since little english suits me better an I mixed them both without even wanting too. So I dont know why, I have been studying Korean and my diction in english sometimes cracks its that normal, maybe cause I study Korean 7 days a week so much that when Im going to speak english my tongue tend to get stuck between words or letters some of them Oh my, hahahah this is so awkward. Even my kids make fun of me.
