    How do you say "And you?"/"What about you?" in Russian?

    Hey,
    I'm working on a beginner Russian dialogue for school.
    I'm wondering how to say "And you?" or "What about you?" in Russian? I believe it's a set phrase?
    I know how to say "me too", but not what about you...

    THanks!

    It depends on the previous sentence. "А ты?", "А у тебя?" etc.

    Мне не нравится. А тебе?

    Я этим летом был на море. А ты?

    — У тебя есть братья или сестры?
    — Да, старший брат. А у тебя?

    The literal translation is "Как насчет тебя?" but I think people often say it in other ways. "А ты как?" and others.

    ‘Couldn't we make it a little more sentimental?’ the writer asked dryly. ‘That's why I like it,’ Burley said. ‘What about you, Doug? Any idiot could shoot a million holes in it as it stands, but I mean the general feel.’ (M. Wilson, ‘My Brother, My Enemy’, ch. IX) — - Нельзя ли сделать все это чуточку сентиментальнее? - сухо спросил писатель. - Нет, мне нравится именно так, - сказал Бэрли. - А вам, Дуг? Конечно, любой дурак мог бы найти тысячу недостатков в этом сценарии, но я говорю об общем настроении.
    Sorry, it seems that to play it safe one does need the context. )
