"How are you" "What's up?" "How have you been lately?" etc.
In japanese, I know how to ask if someone is well. 「お元気ですか」
Also, my one japanese friend said 最近どう？ to me, and I aske dwhat it meant. and she said it was like "whats up?" but maybe a more lieral "have are you lately?" is better...?
I don't know. But anyway, I just wanted ot know what Japanese people (or teenagers) usually say when greeting eachother. Just how everyday, in English, we dont say "how have you been?" or "how are you?" if we talked to them not too long up. We would say something like "whats up?" or other varientions... What would the "japanese version" of "whats up?" be? And what would be the appropriate answer(s)?
