I have a friend who has started learning Mandarin, and I want to ask them how their Mandarin studies are going. The first phrase that comes to mind is this:
I'm not sure, however, if 怎么样 is correct. I don't actually know its exact meaning, but I've always thought of it as "how's it going?", such as in “你过得怎么样？”. Therefore, in this case, "it" would be the person's Chinese studies.
Is this correct? If not, what would be a better way to ask this question?
