When you ask or respond to the question Wie geht's? (How are you?) in Germany, you need to be prepared for an honest conversation and not just the stock English response: “Yeah, fine”. Here – from tip-top to down in the dumps – are the most common responses:
|Mir geht's sehr gut||I'm really well|
|Gut, danke||Good, thanks|
|Es geht so / Geht so||A bit down|
|Nicht so gut||Not so well|
Geht's dir gut? We hope so! Now it's time to dive into the Babbel lesson and brush up on your conversation openers!
