"Salut ! Ça va ?"
Translation:Hi! How is it going?
French phrase can be interpreted in slightly different ways. Comment ça va = How are you going? / or How are you? Salut, ça va = Hi, how are you going / doing. These are translations. There is no word for word translation. In context if some one asks you. Comment ça va.= How are you (going)? You may reply "ça va" = I am fine.
I love it. It's so spiritual. "It (life) moves forward?" "Yes, life is moving forward." Moving/moves forward = goes. It = everything, life, beingness, etc. Yes = repeating an inquiry with a statement. Thus: ça va = It goes. If you're not strongly familiar with English then "go" can mean an abstract "moving forward" or "working properly".. And French clearly has these connotations as well.
