I've got a question: A friend of mine (who's French too) always answers "I'm well, thanks" when he is asked "how are you?".
Is this correct?
he is saying that his health is good.
I think that's being too specific.
The question, "How are you?" is a conversational ritual, "Well, thank you." is one routine reply, meaning 'fine', but in a slightly more 'refined' manner.
