je suis bien vs je vais bien vs ca va
Hi, i was wondering the difference between je suis bien, je vais bien, and ca va? Especially the difference between ca va and the formers? Merci
"Je suis bien" = I am comfortable
"Je vais bien" = I am fine - I am [doing well/fine/ok/okay/o.k/well/good/doing fine/doing ok/doing o.k/doing okay/all right/alright] - [I feel/I am feeling] [fine/good/well/okay/ok].
"ça va" = Fine - I am fine - All is going [well/fine/ok/o.k./okay] - Going well - I am doing well - It [is/goes/is going] [ok/o.k/okay/fine/well/alright/all right] - Things are [ok/okay/fine/OK/O.K./Ok/alright/all right/good] - [I am/He is/She is/We are/They are/] [doing well/fine/ok/okay/o.k/well/good/doing fine/doing ok/doing o.k/doing okay/all right/alright]. - [I feel/I am feeling] [fine/good/well/okay/ok]. - [This/That/It] [goes/is going/is ok/is okay/is o.k/is OK/is O.K./is fine].
"ça va ?" = How are you? - [How is it going/Are you well/Are you okay/Are you doing well/How do you do/How's it going/How goes it/How are things/How is everything/How are things going]? - How are you [doing/going/]?
Since you hadn't gotten an answer I tried it out on Reverso. Looks likes they are basically interchangeable. In English we have : I am good, I am fine, I am ok, I am super, all with or without the "I am".
