In session one we also learnt to ask how people are and how to respond.

Wie geht’s?

Wie geht es Ihnen? (formal) or Wie geht es Dir? (friends, family and work mates)

Can you remember how to answer?

Danke.  Gut!  or  Danke! Sehr gut!  Which means: thanks, I’m well or very well

Now ask them how they are:

Und Ihnen? or  Und Dir? and you?

Watch the BBC video clip again:

Did you notice they said a little bit more?

Danke, auch gut!  That means “Thanks, I’m fine, too”
