    Hows the weather like in Korea?

    1. What is the weather like in Korea?

    2. How is the weather like in Korea?

    3. What is the weather in Korea?

    4. How is the weather in Korea?

    I wonder if 3 and 4 are also grammatical.


    Thank you.

    These two are fine; the others are not.

    I was taught that, when asking for description, both senteces below are ok. Please tell me if I was taught wrong.

    - what's you sister like?

    - How's your sister like? (If someone just asks me How's your sister? I will probably reply "she's fine, thanks", that's why the "like" stands for description)

    Thanks.

    "How's your sister like?" is wrong.

    thanks bhaisahab. I fell horrible, because last week I taught that to my students. (But it's not my fault, I was taught this way too). I'll see what I can do to amend it.
