    Some help

    I'm writing a letter to a Russian friend and want to say "How are you?"/"How's it going?" as well as "How was your stay in America?" in Russian. Are the following correct for that?

    Как дела? Как был твое пребывание в Америке?

    This is a very informal letter as we were good friends while she was in America.

    Thank you!

    Sure, it's all good.

    Как дела? Как былo твое пребывание в Америке?

    Just one typo. Considered cute when a foreigner writes in Russian, you don't even have correct it.

    A Russian person would not say Как былo твое пребывание в Америке? but like I said, it's all good coming from an American. I am not being condescending or anything.

    Maybe a Russian would say

    Как прошла твоя поездка в Америку? (How did your trip to America go?)

    or

    Как тебе понравилось в Амeрике? (How did you like it in America).

    Haha, definitely leave it, then... There is definitely something sexy about hearing a minor mistake from an Eastern European woman... :P

    Good luck!
