I spoke with a friend that I haven't spoken to in a long time. He started with a question about a test he is having. After I answered the question, I wanted to ask him:
"How have you been anyway?"
As in, 'On another topic, how have you been?'
- What's the best way to translate anyway in this context?
- Would the best translation for 'anyway' be 'de todos modos'?
I know there are some other ways to say 'anyway' but wasn't sure of the best translation in this situation.
- Also, are there more natural ways to ask this question as apposed to a direct translation, ie. an idiomatic expression or something?
