מַה נִּשְׁמַע…?
 In English, we’ve got many ways of asking someone how they are feeling, what they are doing, etc, such as how are you? how’s it going? what’s up? how are you going (Australian)? how are you doing (American)? what’s going on? what’s happening? etc.
In Hebrew, we’ve also got a bunch of ways to greet with a question. Here are seven:
מַה שְּׁלוֹמְךָ? מַה שְּׁלוֹמֵךְ?

How are you (to a male)? How are you (to a female)? Literally, What is your peace?  listen and repeat
