    improving

    Hi, I'd like to know from a native speaker if it is possible to say:

    1) How is their English coming along?

    2) How are they faring with their English?

    3) How is their English faring?

    4) How is their English going?

    5) How is their English getting along?

    Any farther suggestion is welcomed.
    Thanks. Rip

    #2 is a little old-fasioned in my opinion. #3 is not natural. The others are fine.
