Learn English – Podcast: Can’t complain. How are things with you?

[odeo=22556441]

Today’s sentence Hello again. How are things? Here’s a possible answer to this question! Can’t complain. How are things with you? Notes This is a possible answer to the following questions: How’s it going? How are you doing? How’s life? How are things? How are you feeling? How are you? Can’t complain means fine. It is short for I can’t complain about my life / my health. Complaining means criticising / saying that something is bad. So you are saying: “I can’t say anything bad about my life (because there is nothing bad to say about it).” A bit negative? Yes, I think so. It’s almost as if you want to complain about your life! However, it’s extremely common. Everyone says it (including me.) How are things with you? is like saying yourself? And you? You? etc. It’s a common way of saying how are you? Alright, that’s all for now. We’ll look at another sentence in this theme tomorrow. Bye! Search Linguagum for more English tips, check out our very useful links and our shop!
