  5. "Anh ấy dùng nó như thế nào?"

"Anh ấy dùng như thế nào?"

Translation:How does he use it?

June 3, 2016



so, if the question was anh ấy dùng cái muổng như thế nào?

the answer would be "anh ấy dùng nó như ...." and some sort of comparison, for example, a shovel.

I understand như thế nào and thế nào to be both asking about manner, except that như thế nào is searching for a comparison like a metaphor or simile while thế nào could be that or demonstration or procedural explanation.

is this correct?


That's correct. Như = like. Như thế nào? = like what? and therefore = how.
