Can you dance?

         Huì ā, dàn tiào de bù zěnmeyàng.
Anne: 会啊,但   跳 得   不    怎么样。
Yes, I can, but not very well.

The phrase “不怎么样 (bù zěnmeyàng)” means “nothing special” or “just so-so.” People often use “不怎么样 (bù zěnmeyàng)” to show his/her feelings or opinion about something.
For example:
Wǒ juéde zhè jiàn qúnzi bù zěnmeyàng.
我    觉得 这 件     裙子  不    怎么样。
I don’t think much of this dress.

However, “怎么样 (zěnmeyàng)” means “how is someone/something?” and is used to ask for an opinion.
For example:

Nǐ juéde zhè jiàn qúnzi zěnmeyàng?
你 觉得 这    件    裙子   怎么样?
What do you think of this dress?
