这周,我们回答来自麦琪的问题。
This week we answer a question from Maggie.

她写道:
She writes:

你可以告诉我“What’s going on”,“What’s up”和“How is it going”的不同吗?
Could you explain to me what is the difference among "What’s going on?", "What’s up?" and "How is it going?"

它们的意思一样吗?– 麦琪
Do they mean the same? -- Maggie

亲爱的麦琪,
Dear Maggie,

这是个好问题,因为这是我们一直都在用的话。
This is a good question because these are sayings we use all the time.

问候某人(通常是你认识的某人)时都可以使用它们。
They can all be used when greeting someone, usually someone you know.

举个例子:你在商店遇到了一个已经好一段时间没见过的朋友了。
Take this example: You run into a friend you have not seen for a while at the store.

“嗨,戴夫!”你说。 “很高兴再次见到你。最近怎么样?”
"Hi, Dave!" you say. "Good to see you again. What’s up with you?"

戴夫可能会说:“麦琪! 我最近上班很忙。一切都很好。你怎么样啊?”
Dave may say: "Maggie! I have been so busy at work. All is well. What’s up with you?"

戴夫想知道麦琪最近在做什么。
Dave wants to know what Maggie has been doing recently.

这是一个宽泛笼统的问题。
This is a wide open, general question.

它是“有什么新变化?”的另一种说法。
It is another way of saying "What’s New?"

如果你生气并指责某人做错了事,也可以使用“What’s going on”这个表达。
The expression "What’s going on" can also be used if you are angry, and accuse someone of doing something wrong,

比如:
as in this example:

“这里发生了什么?我说过你可以骑我的摩托车吗?”
"What’s going on here? Did I say you can use my motorbike?"

现在说一下“How is it going”的用法。
Now, when it comes to "How is it going?",

当您见到朋友时,可以把这句话用作问候的一部分。
you can use these words as part of a greeting when you see a friend.

它可以是一个笼统的问题,也可以是更直接的问题。
It can be a general question or more direct about something.

这有一个例子:
Here is an example:

你在公共汽车站看到你的朋友玛丽。
You see your friend Mary at the bus stop.

你知道她妈妈生病住院了。
You know her mother was sick and in the hospital.

“嗨,玛丽。我一直在想你。最近好吗?你妈妈好吗?”
"Hi, Mary. I have been thinking about you. How is it going? How is your Mom doing?"

这句话还可以用在工作情境中,比如:
Here is another example where it can be used at work:

“詹姆斯,您的项目进展如何?能按时完成吗?”
"James, how is it going with your project? Will you have it done on time?"
