    Default How to answer this question?

    People usually ask me the question : "How do you like the city so far?"

    But I really have no idea what that means.
    So can you tell me what the speaker means by that question? And how should I reply?
    Thanks.

    They are asking if you are enjoying your visit to the city.

    Or, if you have recently moved to the city, they are asking if your experience so far has been good.

    Possible answers, depending on your circumstances:
    Wonderful! What a great city. I'm having a great time!
    Everything has been great!
    I'm learning more about the city every day.
    I'm not used to the noise yet, but the food has been terrific.
    To be honest, I miss my little town, but I will learn to love it here, I'm sure.

    Or whatever you feel about the city.

    It means this "What's your opinion of this city up until now?"

    The speaker wants to know if you like the city and if you think it's a good place to visit.

    So, onetwothree, how do you like the city so far?

    Oh, I see. Thank you all. :)

    And yeah, I must say I'm really enjoying Boston. :D IT's wonderful.
    ... not to mention Tom Cruise is somewhere around here, probably. :D
