    Question Tudo bem or tudo bom?

    What is the difference, if any, between Tudo bem and tudo bom?
    Thanks!

    Hi!!!

    "Tudo bom" and "Tudo bem" you can say when you will ask someone how is he, and use both as a question or an answer, for example:
    - Tudo bom?
    - Tudo bem.

    - Tudo bem?
    - Tudo bom.

    The difference is that "Tudo bem" you can use in a general way too.
    Question Example: How was your day?
    - Como foi o seu dia?
    - Foi tudo bem!

    If you need more explanations, please ask me!!!

    Cheers,
    Ali

    When it comes to greeting, there isn't really a difference. A Brazilian native speaker will use both indistinctively. Mind you bem=well and bom=good.
    Cheers!
