How to say, "How are you" in Spanish?
What are all the different ways to ask people, "How are you" in Spanish?
Please describe the situation I'd use each phrase. Thanks!
You can say:
1- ¿Cómo estás \ está? = How do you do? \ How are you? This expression is somewhat more formal than the following one. Note that "estás" is the form of the verb "estar" with "tu" = you, while "está" is the form of the same verb with "usted"= formal you (used normally with people who are older than you or those who you don't know well.
1- ¿Qué tal? = How are you doing? How is it going? And this one is more common between friends and people who you know well.
I hope it helps :)
