  • Hi Bob the Canadian here.

  • How are you doing?

  • How are you doing?

  • You'll hear this question quite regularly when native English speakers are greeting

  • each other.

  • It's a little more personal than, "Hi" or "Hello".

  • How are you doing?

  • It's really a question that's meant to inquire about how the person's day is going, and how

  • they feel about it.

  • Or, how they're feeling about themselves.

  • How are you doing?

  • Now with all regular conversation questions, there's two faster versions of this.

  • The first fast version is to take "how" and "are" and contract them together.

  • So you end up with, "How're".

  • And then the "you" kind of turns into "ya".

  • And "doing" we kind of drop the "g".

  • So you end up with a sentence that sounds like this, "How're ya doin?"

  • "How're ya doin?"

  • "I'm doing great."

  • "How're ya doin?"

  • "I'm having a great day."

  • "How're ya doin?"

  • "Not so good."

  • There's another version where we drop the verb out entirely and we just take the word,

  • "are" and we just don't use it.

  • And you say, "How ya doin?"

  • "How ya doin?"

  • "I'm doing great"

  • "How ya doin?"

  • "I'm doing fine"

  • So you may hear a conversation that goes like this:

  • "How ya doin?"

  • "I'm doing pretty good, How're you doin?"

  • "I'm doing pretty good too."
