    Arrow About Health...

    Hello,

    Can anybody help me please?

    If one person is sick, what's the way to ask him/her whether is she/he good or not? I would like to know about informal and formal way, please.

    Can I say?: "How about your health?" or "How does health goes?" .Do you know anymore else?

    Another question (it's not about health):

    Is correct I say "How does things goes?"

    Cheers!

    Falcon

    Usually you would simply ask them "How are you feeling today?" or perhaps "Are you feeling any better?" Also, when someone is ill, it's always polite to ask "Is there anything I can do for you?"


    Instead of "How does things goes?" you would say "How's it going?" or "How are things?"

    1. How are you feeling?
    2. How do you feel?
    3. How are you?

    There are lots of ways to ask how someone's health is.

    Thanks a lot!

    You know, as my mother tongue is not English (I'm Brazilian), so I have to build a mental structure in English to speak and sometimes something like that - a question about health - spend lots of time just to imagine a correct method to talk about it.

    I really appreciated your help!
