Can you please tell me what Como andas means

How do you walk is the direct translation, but it means how you doing, how are you

I disagree:

como andas = like you walk

¿Cómo andas? = How are things? / How are you doing'

Mi maestro, lazarus.

Is this just a Mexican slang or it is used in other countries including Spain?

Thank you,

Marco

I guess it is slang, it is used in Central America and Mexico. I never been to Spain though but it is probably used there too.

please see my disclaimer somewhere in this forum.

It is the same use in Spain, Lazarus was pointing out the importance of accents, as the meaning can change without accents.

Sorry, I missed the accent.

Marco, it is used in Spain too.

By the way, it is not just the accent, but the total absence of both question marks.

I am sorry, I missed the set of question marks.

To give an example of why Lazarus feels this is important, here is a part of the lyrics of a famous Mexican song.

Mira como ando mujer, por tu querer.

In this case, the word is como, not cómo as in your case, and the meaning is different.

Yes, in Spain we also say like in other countries:

¿Cómo anda todo?
¿Cómo marcha todo?

I've never heard about 'Caminar', but we often say:

¿Cómo va todo? (This is very usual)
