French translation:v

Any way.
Formal: Comment allez-vous aujourd'hui?
casual: Comment vas-tu aujourd'hui?
Comment ça va aujourd'hui?
There are other ways. the above ones are the more common. if u don't know how to say how are you in French, it shows that you do not know this language. I therefore suggest you to use simple formula

Comment ça va?


Explanation:
This is a general statement and can be used to anybody regardless of how well you know them.

Otherwise: comment va-tu?
for someone you know well

or: comment allez-vous?
for someone you know less well, or who is much older than you or more senior...
