    Question Asking about salary

    Usually, When we want to ask, we use this question:"What is your current salary?"
    Can i use this sentence "How much is your salary" interchangeably with the sentence above?
    I am a little confusing. Can anyone help me? Thanks a lot

    Re: Asking about salary

    It is a difficult question to ask in many English variants. You could ask How much do you make/earn, but don't expect people to be willing to answer.

    Re: Asking about salary

    Both versions of the question are grammatically correct. However, there are few situations where it would not be rude to ask them.

    Write I am a little confused.
    If you write confusing, it means you confuse other people.

    See my corrections above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Hello HoaMa95, and welcome to the forum.
    As has been pointed out above, it may not always be appropriate to ask this kind of thing. Who are you thinking of asking this question?
