Can you help me, please?
Today I was speaking with my British friend about how I met my Italian friend. And he suddenly asked me: How are they?
I haven't understood it, and he said it's too advanced, so please, can you explain me, what it means?
Thank you :)
For sure, it was written :)
And I have no idea, that's why I'm asking :(
But you said you were speaking to your friend. So, you have the written words "How are they?" about one person?
The only sensible explanation (apart from mistakes/misunderstandings) is that you didn't tell your British friend what sex your Italian friend was, and your British friend used the singular 'they' in place of 'he' or 'she'.
