"Hello, how are you? Fine, thanks."
Translation:Hoi, hoe gaat het? Goed, dank je.
't hasn't been taught to me yet, but the solution seems to want it. That said, why is "❤❤❤ gaat je" incorrect?
I said "Hoi, ❤❤❤ gaat 't? Het gaat prima, dank je." and it wasn't accepted. Is "prima" too much? I am assuming it means the same as German, "top-notch".
Where did you get the "top-notch" feeling? "Prima" in today's German is actually quite near to "fine" (and would be a perfectly acceptable answer in a situation like this). If you'd want to go for more excitement words like "großartig", "super" or "fantastisch" come to mind.
I'd really appreciate if the use of "het" as pronoun was explained somewhere? when to use it? here and at the "het spijt me" can be confusing IMO.
Much the same as in English, no? You can say "how's it going" in English with the same meaning.

the dutch use the verb "gaan" / "to go" in this context. "how are you" is literally translated as "how is it going". "❤❤❤ bent u" is gramatically correct but would mean something like "what are you like?"
A lingot to babybluejay for his kind regards on this matter. Yours, Bubbletoad
Could I say, "Hoi, ❤❤❤ ga je?" I thought it was ok to drop the "t" for the 2nd person conjugation of gaan.
"❤❤❤ ga je" is a correct scentence but would mean something like "How will you go?" as in: "Ik ga naar school. -❤❤❤ ga je? -Op de fiets." (I'm going to school / how? / on the bike)
Bedankt / dank je / dank je wel :: Thanks / Thank you / Thank you very much?
This also confuses me: is there a difference in meanings of "bedankt" and "dank je"?
I am having trouble with the hello part. Why cant it be hallo like the other ones
