    Where is the expression, “How are you going?”
    from.

    The expressions I know are “How are you doing?”
    and “How’s it going?”

    “How are you going?” isn’t an expression in American
    English.

  2. Mark says:

    It is a common expression in australia and New Zealand.

  3. lucky says:

    hi mark,

    which expression is right “how are you doing?” or “how’s it going” can we use both expressions?

    thanks

  4. Mark White says:

    Hi Lucky,

    Yeah, you can use both. You can also say “How are you going?”, which is very common in Australia.

    Nowadays a lot of Americans say: “What’s up?” or “Wassup?”
    and answer: “Not much”.

    A lot of Brits say: “Alright?” and the answer is “Alright.”

    cheers Mark
