    What are you?

    Hello,teachers:
    When people say "What do you do?" , it means someone asks your career.

    I am wondering if the sentence "Whar are you?" is also the same question as the sentence "What do you do?".

    I have a vague memory that it seems to be incorrect , but I am not very sure.

    May I have your verification?
    Thanks for your reply!

    If you say, 'What are you?' it could sound insulting.

    I think that "what are you" might also be a question anout one's nationality. "What are you - Canadian? American?"
