Kako provodiš vreme?


Explanation:
This is not a very common question to ask in Serbian. But if we ask it, we mostly say it like that.Literally:"How do you spend your time?"
The most common question we ask each other is "Šta radiš", literally meaning "What are you doing". However, the conventional reply to this is not a list of your current activities, but a very strange "nothing".

2. Kako je bilo danas?

Kako si? Kako se osecas danas?


Explanation:
There are several ways to ask that question in Serbian.
How is your day? is not in the spirit of the Serbian language, so I suggest you to use more appropriate words for your student's age. I'll give you few examples:
Kako si?
How are you?
Kako se osecas danas?
How do you feel today?
Kako provodis vreme?
How do you spend your spare time?

Hope this helps,
good luck!
