"What do you do in your life?" or "What do you do in your current life?" Is correct some of these questions? I mean, when you want to know about the other person, what does in their daily life, as if they work or study, paint or play some sport. And if any of these questions are correct, which will be the right way to ask something like that? If I wrote something wrong, then correct me too please. Thanks.

Neither of these sentences is really correct. It depends on what you want to know specifically, in this case - for example, if you want to ask about someone's job, you can say "What do you do for a living?" If you want to know about their hobbies, you can say "What do you do for fun?" or "What do you do in your free time?"

what do you do for living?

In English, we say "what do you do for a living" or "what do you do" when discussing career. (Como, a que te dedicas?) The fact that "what do you do" implies a job shows how much English speakers often prioritize their jobs as their main identities. We say "what do you LIKE to do" for discussing hobbies and everyday life.

Are some of these questions correct? I mean, when you want to know about another person, what they do in their daily life, like do they work, study, paint, or play sports. If these questions are correct, what would be the right way to ask something like that? well, if you were to form these into questions in the way you would ask someone it would look something like this. What do you do in your daily life?, What are your hobbies? How do you spend your time? (no más para darle una maneras diferentes hacer la pregunta) Do you study?(un poco extraño) Are you a student? Are you in school? Do you go to school? Do you paint? Do you play sports? ¡Espero que esto le ayude!
