Hi, how’s it going, I`m Lamas. Nice to meet you in this series. We’re going to learn some easy ways to ask and answer common questions in English, it’s really useful, and it only takes three minutes in this lesson. You’re going to learn new, more common ways to ask and answer the question, how are you in English. You’ve probably learned.

How are you and I’m fine in textbooks before, but in the United States, people will usually ask this question and answer it in a different way. First, let’s review if someone says how are you, you can say I’m fine, “I’m fine”. Here are some other ways to answer, “pretty good”. This means about the same thing as I’m fine, “pretty good”. We also have not bad. You can use this if you are feeling just okay or so, so/not bad.

Let’s look at our question again. How are you, this is the most well-known way of asking how someone is you could use it when you want to be polite. But now let’s look at some different ways to ask how someone is. These ways are more casual and much more common. first, hey, how’s it going. you can answer this in many ways. if you’re feeling good, you can say good, good. pretty good, not bad.

Here’s a tip, even though these answers mean the same thing as I’m fine, you can’t answer. how’s it going with, I’m fine. It will sound a bit strange. If you’re not feeling good, you can say not so good, not great, or not so well. Be careful if you say one of these, the other person will usually ask why what’s wrong to be polite, then you will have to explain another casual but very common version of how are you is what’s up? To reply, use a cheerful voice, as you say, not much or nothing much. This means you are free and able to chat, since what’s up is just another way of saying hello, you can also reply with hey or Hi.

Now it’s time for Lamas’ advice, a lot of the time when we ask questions that mean, “how are you?”, in English, we’re not actually asking about the other person’s health. we’re only asking to be polite. You should think of these questions as another way of saying hello, a way for the conversation to get started instead of actual literal questions. in fact when someone asks you what’s up, you don’t even have to answer, just say what’s up in reply.
