I looked up the conjugation for être and the word était is used for il/elle. I'm a bit confused.

  • Consider that in English, one says "How was your day?" and not "How were your day?" as "your day" is the subject. – Maroon Jun 13 '20 at 22:10

    @Maroon this is basically right but taking a saying in one language to explain another one is a dangerous thing since certain languages may differ too much – messerbill Jun 14 '20 at 10:45

Ta journée is the subject of était.

Spoken French usually avoid the interrogative inversion which is formal so that makes:

Ta journée était comment ?


Elle était comment, ta journée ?


Comment elle était, ta journée ?
