    Default How do you say that in English?

    When we ask for help in English, are the following sentences all natural?

    1. How do you say that in English?
    2. How do you say it in English?
    3. How do you say this in English?
    4. What do you call this in English?
    5. What do you call it in English?
    6. What do you call that in English?


    Is there any difference between sentence 1 and 2?

    Many thanks for your help.

    They are all natural in the proper context.
