63. How about …? どう

To ask the state of something (how something is doing) use the useful construction, dou (desu ka).

You can used it with or without the final “desu ka” in conversation.

最近はどうですか?
saikin wa dou desu ka?

How’s it going recently?

 

コーヒーはどう
ko-hi- wa dou?

How’s
the coffee?

or it could mean, “How about some coffee?”

 

天気予報はどう
tenki yohou wa dou?

How’s
the weather forecast looking?

Of course when the context is understood you can simply say, “dou” (Like returning from a doctor’s appointment, or after your friend gets off an important phone call)
