Forum Rocket Hindi Hindi Grammar "aap kaise hai?" vs "kaise hai aap?"

"aap kaise hai?" vs "kaise hai aap?"

So far, in other Hindi courses, Hindi films etc. I've only come across "aap kaise hai?" i.e. putting the verb at the end of the sentence. But judging by the first lesson, Rocket Hindi seems to teach both, slightly favouring "kaise hai aap?". Is this definitely correct? And why this difference?

Hi Monika,

Thank you for your message.  Both the sentences are right, it can vary from individual to individual. While conversing in Hindi, you are more likely to say "aap kaise hain?", but when you write in Hindi, you are more likely to write "kaise hain aap", which literally translates to "How are you?".
I hope this makes sense to you. Please don't hesitate to send in more queries. 

Cheers!
