How do you ask "What is your family like?
I am interested in knowing how you phrase questions such as
"What is your family like?" "What is it like at the university?" "What is it like working in Spain?" "What was your day like?"
Como es tu familia? Describeme tu familia. Me describes tu familia?
HI suerte, you got my vote on this as this is a very good question. My students have great difficulty in understanding the different uses of like, as they always think it is "gustar".
What is ...like? ¿Cómo es.....
What do you like? ¿Qué te gusta?
What is it like...? ¿Qué tal (es)......
For your day you could ask: Como fue su día? (Sometimes I say, "Come SE fue su día?")
I asked this very same question a few weeks ago. My verbage was "como construida tu familia." I'm not sure I used that exact wording...but you will find, as in english, there a million ways to ask a question. The most important thing being that you think it out for yourself, post it, and see how the other people might construct the question. This is part of the learning process. I speak spanish everyday, and I listen very closely to the people, to find phrases that I like, and them I use them. This is how spanish is passed around. You will learn far more far faster than just asking a question in english.
Basically you are asking about the use of the word "like" in these situations. If I give you a couple of examples, perhaps you can work out the rest.
What´s he like? - ¿Cómo es (él)?
You know what she´s like - ya sabes cómo es (ella)
