Hey listeners! Did we miss any other common questions? Leave a comment and tell us what other questions you use a lot!

Hi Mayer,
Actually we use 你好吗?when we meet our friends who we haven’t met for a period of time.
e.g. 好久不见。你好吗?
好久不见。你最近好吗?
Either above is OK.

But is 你好吗? ever used among native Chinese speakers?

http://www.italki.com/article/360/how-do-you-really-greet-in-chinese#.VeneHvlViko

Chinese people never say 你好吗? which is the literal translation of How are you? … after the habit of westerners. It is usually arranged in the first few lessons of almost all Chinese-as-a-Foreign-Language textbooks for the convenience of structure teaching and for the communicative need. Why? Because both the question and answer belong to typical adj-predicate sentence patterns used exclusively in Chinese.

Hi, Mayer,
1.你学中文学了多久了?=你学中文多久了?=你中文学了多久了?=你学了多久的中文了?
The 4 above are all natural Chinese.

2. 你学了多久的中文了?
The main part of this sentence is 你 学 中文.
And we add the question part 多久(久, adjective) before 中文, as 中文 is a noun, so we use 的 between them.

3. 最近怎么样? is more used to close friends if you haven’t met each other for a period of time.

For the “how long” question, would you ever say “你学中文学了多久了”? In other words, do you ever need to repeat the verb for a VO when asking “how long”? And when is 的 used? As in, 你学了多久的中文了?(Admittedly that latter sounds odd.)

Also, is 你好吗 really used anywhere? In mainland China my understanding is that 最近怎么样?is preferred .
