    Cool WHat about you?

    Hello!

    Is the use of "what about you" correct in this case please?

    A says to B: My favourite film is "fast and furious", what about you?

    or

    A says to B: My best work experience was in KKK, what about you?

    or

    A says to B: I like people who are straightforward, what about you?

    Thanks a lot for your help
    Will

    Re: WHat about you?

    You can say "How about you?" to mean "What about you?"

    how/what about…?

    1 used when asking for information about somebody/something
    How about Ruth? Have you heard from her?
    I'm having fish. What about you?
    2 used to make a suggestion
    How about going for a walk?
    (especially North American English) How about we go for a walk?
    What about a break?


    "how about" or "what about"?
    "how about" vs. "what about"
    How about / What about
    how about you / what about you
    How about you vs What about you
    How about/ What about
    How/What (do you think) about
    How/What about you?
    What about.../How about...? *
    what about/how about
    What/How about
