    hello, these videos are really helping my grades, but one quetion. i’m a little comfused. My teacher says that when you talk in casual form you can say ca va(ca with a tail) to ask how the person is doing. and to say what’s your name is tu t’appeller comment. help me please.

      Tu t’appelles comment? works in the casual form to ask someone their name, yes. Ca va? is how are you? how is it going? So your teacher is right on both counts. :)
