Hello Marisa Gennace,


Thank you for your question.

Actually, these sentences mean basically the same in English, so, you can use both of these forms quite freely.

There is a very slight difference between those two, as "miten voit" is often considered as a bit more personal question.


Let us know if you have any question.

Cheers,

Aarni

Hi everyone! I am still a little confused about how to say “how are you”. Is it “Mitä kuuluu?” or is it “Miten voit?” Or is it both? Thanks in advance!

Yes, Sharon. It is commonly used answer to the question "kuinka voit?" 😄

"Voin hyvin, kiitos."
