Default Re: I'm fine, thank you.

I have NEVER taught "sup dawg"...where did everyone get their degrees...bob's paint and polish?

"I'm fine" is appropriate for beginners and in everyday situations, but students have a natural curiosity beyond "how are you" "what's this?" and "what sports do you like?"

Allowing the children/students a choice of options and synonyms is why we introduce new vocabulary.

I am NOT always fine--and I don't believe my students are either.
