Recognize Different Ways to Say "How Are You?" in Spanish

 In your Spanish classes you learn ¿Cómo estás? as the way to say How are you?

But don’t be surprised by:

 ¿Qué tal?

¿Qué onda? 

¿Qué hay? 

¿Qué hubo?

Appropriate answers are the same as if you had been asked ¿Cómo está?:

Muy bien, ¿y Ud.?  
Bien, gracias. ¿y Ud.?
