    Re: is it the same?

    Hmm,

    I suppose in some instances, these two phrases can be interchanged:

    How about you? What do you think?
    What about you? What do you think?

    But in others, interchanging these phrases is awkward:

    How about you give me a hand? (sounds OK)
    What about you give me hand? (sounds awkward)

    How about the other teachers on the forum? What's your take?
