I think they don't like contractions. Try typing 'i am fine'.

I put in No, no, it's ok.

"No, no, it is good" is also accepted

what is the closest literal transation of "ca va"? "Ca va bien" seems to mean "it is going well", but if so, "ca va" means it is going? I'm a little confused.

literally, yes, it means 'that goes'.

How the heck does "ca va" become "I am fine"? I thought "ca" meant "that". And "va" means "go," no?

ca va is like one of those phrases that is a set phrase that you just need to memorize. Like the guy above said, you can think aout it as that goes, or it goes, but in this phrase in this order it´s always going to be ¨it´s going¨ or talk about how somenoe or something is

I'm still so confused about this "ça" and "va" combination
