Dear Everyone:

I know that you can say "how are you?" in these ways:

Comment allez-vous?

or

Comment ça va?

However, someone recently told me that I can say "How are you?" in French by using just one word:

"siray" (please forgive my spelling???)

I have never of this, but I don't know everything about the French language! Basically, is this true? Any info given is greatly appreciated. Merci bien!

Aren't you referring "Salut" perhaps?

Which kinda means hello but i've heard people use it as goodbye.

If it's one word then it's definitely on the slang side...you might wanna check your spelling though... Confused

you can say "ça va ?" which shorter for "comment ça va ?"

but "siray" never heard of it!! I heard some people only saying "bien ?" meaning "bien ça va ?" (are you good?)
