The most formal way to say "How are you" in Finnish is Mitä (sinulle) kuuluu? ['sinulle' is often omitted]

answer: Hyvää (minulle) kuuluu, kiitos = I'm fine, thanks.

Huonoa (minulle) kuuluu = I'm bad lol

If you want to ask how someone is feeling right now, then it's Miten (sinä) voit?

answer: hyvin (good) or huonosti (bad)

Miten menee? (a bit less formal)

answer: Hyvin menee = I'm doing well

Huonosti menee = doing not so well

Kuis hurisee (sinulla) ? ['sinulla' is most of times omitted]

(very informal)

answer: Hyvin (hurisee) = im fine

Huonosti (hurisee) = im bad

Puhekieli: most of times you'll hear things like sulle or sulla which is really same as sinulleor sinulla but in spoken language (puhekieli).



To ask in turn 'And you ?/What about you ?' you can ask:

Entä sinulle/sinulla ?

How to choose the right one ? The right one is that used in the question, with Mitä kuuluu ? you'll answer Entä sinulle?

Mitäs sinä?

Used mostly in circle of friends or by acquaintance. This one is more like saying 'sup in English.

Usually answered: "Ei mitään". Meaning: "Nothing special".

How are you doing? (More of a greeting-type)

Kuis menee? (NOTE: Contains slang: Kuis is equal to Kuinka, but it sounds much better this way)
