    Hello dear Forestine79,
    Congratulations! You are very active on the Forum.It means, among other goals, that you want to improve your English and you wondered whether you should ask: how is
    the life or how is life. Don't use the article because you mean life IN GENERAL.


    Actually, you should ask: what is life like over there?
    We use HOW when you want to ask about people's health (How are you?) about people's reaction to their experiments (How is your job? I love it)


    We use WHAT...LIKE when we want to have a description.
    -What's the weather like?
    -What's your mother like? She is small and shy( =physically+character)
    -What DOES your mum LOOK like? She is a small blue-eyed lady, she has fair hair.


    It means that a question can be be very accurate:
    -How was the film? Great(=your reaction or impression)
    -What is the film like? Long but the actors are great as well as the music.
    So you see that it is sometimes possible to use both structures.


    I hope you are not totally lost by now.Go on telling us how you are, what your area is like etc...
    Bye for tonight Forestine.
  • Hi everybody,

  • Hi Bernadette and others !
    I don't know exactly what I like to do because my life makes me running and running at every moment because of my professional and family's life.
    Like Forestine79 I read every evening. I don't practise sports other than running...
    I do like learning langages. I improve my schoolish English with Gymglish. You know that because if I didn't I wouln't be on the Gymglish Forum. Then I learn Russian, Spanish and Vietnamese. But somtimes it's difficult to keep the vocabulary in mind.
    When I was at school, I used to learn English and "Old langages" like latin and Old greek. Every thursday I went to the Louvre school in the afternoon to learn about antique civilizations and, to learn that, we had to learn antique writings too : sumerian, assyrian, hieroglyphs... Then I dreamed that I would be archeologist...
    But it never happened... I changed my way.
    Bye, Zina
