‘How was your day’ is only talking about something that is finished, not something that is happening right now.

 

Hey guys. It’s Shane from English Understood here.

 

‘How was your day’ is a great phrase that you can use to start a conversation with someone. It’s normally used to ask about someone’s time at work or what they did during the daytime on a specific day.

 

For example, if it’s 7pm, and you ask someone ‘How was your day’, that means you are talking about today.

 

To answer the question, simply say ‘It was’ and then describe your day. You can also say ‘My day was’ and then describe your day.

 

My day was good.

 

It was a little bit slow.

 

My day was really busy.

 

You can also give an example of what you did on that day. My day was good. I had a lot of meetings today. Remember. Use the past tense.

 

Now to ask the other person about their day, simply add ‘What about yours’ at the end of your answer. My day was good. I had a lot of meetings today. What about yours?

 

So how was your day? Comment down below.
