Asking a question with “COMMENT”

  • The easiest way to make a question with “COMMENT” is as follow. This is also a casual and informal way to ask a question.
Subject Verb COMMENT ?
Example: Il est comment ?
He is how ?


Other examples:

  1. La maison est comment ? (How is the house?)
  2. L’appartement est comment ? (How is the apartment?)
  3. Julia est comment ? (How is Julia?)
  4. Le gâteau est comment ? (How is the cake?)

The answer to this question follow the same pattern as the question:

Answers: Il est grand .

  2. Comment est la maison ?
