How are you ? – Ako sa máš ?
Do you know how to say „How are you?“ in Slovak language and how to answer for this question. In this article, you will see everything about it.
Mať „ to have“ combined with sa (oneself) has idiomatic sense to be feeling, hence the standart phase.
Ako sa máte?
This phrase means in English.
How are you ? How are you feeling ? How are things ?
That is to use the vy, or formal mode of address, of course. With someone to whom you say, you need to say.
How are you ? Ako sa máš ?
This question is not mere formality. It is normally expects a response. A conventional answer might be.
Ďakujem. Mám sa dobre. Thank you. I am feeling well.
Ďakujem, dobre. Thank you, well
If feeling notably unwell, you could conceived say:
Zle ! Bad !
Neutral, but unenthusiastic, is:
Ujde to. Not too bad. Okay. It´ll do.
Note how sa (oneself) is not always placed after the ver ! In fact, as a rule, it comes in the second possible slot in a clause or a sentence:
Ako sa máte – mám sa dobre. How are you ? I am well.
Ivan sa má dobre. Ivan is well.
Igor a Peter sa majú dobre. Igor and Peter are well.
