    The answer is "because" . :) The literal translation would be "how do you go?" which is used in a slight variation in the USA "How goes it (with you)?" and also in German "Wie geht es Ihnen? Wie geht es dir?". How would you say it in Portuguese?

    oui, Comment allez-vous? est une formule polie, plutôt formelle, que l'on peut utiliser au travail ou en dehors.
    C'est une formule sure (safe)
    Le How's it going? sera plutot un "Comment ca va?" plus informel, (more casual)
