I know I can simply say See you/Bye, etc., but I wonder if it sounds natural to say You too in response to See you.

    i don't think so. It is natural to reply 'See you'/'See you later'. 'You too' sounds natural in response to 'have a good week-end' and similar.

  • You have established the "see you later" in your conversation, so there is no need to repeat it. I would just say "bye" or "later". To me "You too" sounds corny when someone says it.

  • I either respond to this with a simple 'ya!' or 'sure'. Mar 13, 2018 at 8:57

Responding to

See you
See you soon
See you later

using

You too (AmE)
And you (BrE)

would be understood. It's not usually used in that way by native speakers, but is used to respond to something like

Have a nice day!
Stay cool! (during the summer heat)

to mean "you also".

  • So, what is(are) usually used?
