Can you explain about the phrase “what are you up to”?


Native speaker’s answer


"What are you up to" is a very common English phrase that means "What are you doing" or "What's new in your life." It is a way of asking what the person is doing currently and is also a way to learn what new things are happening in an individual's life. Here are some example conversation sentences: A: Hey! What are you up to? B: I'm just watching t.v. A: I haven't seen you in so long! What are you up to? B: It has been a long time! I'm actually working at a law firm now. A: Wow, that's great! Don't be afraid to use this expression! It is very common and understandable for native English speakers. Thanks for the great question!
