Asking after other people. In English, I'd ask "How is your little sister?" Or "how is your younger sister?". as a way to find out how they are and generally enquire about them. . Is there a similar way in Chinese? A way to ask after a relative, specifically here a younger sister? I don't need that it be natural, just understandable. Natural would be a bonus. Many thanks in advance.Thanks, Indigo. I'm after something that will be interpretted as "How is she?" a little more than just say "HI" to her or 问她好.

I think you might say "你的妹妹好吗?" but I could be completely wrong.

Indigo's answer is pretty understandable, some native speakers might say it like that, but I'd personally say 你妹妹最近还好吗?kind of like you say how's your 妹妹 been recently?或者 你妹妹还好吗? 你妹妹最近怎么样?Say Hi to her = 给她带声/个好 or simply say 向她问好
