    Hola:

    La expresión "qué tal si mañana nos vamos"

    Me gustaría saber si se puede dedir " How about if we..."

    Saludos

    Sí, "how about if we leave tomorrow"

    Hay una diferencia entre "nos vamos" y "vamos".

    Muchas gracias por tu explicación, quería saber si how about if era una expresión usada, pues me daba la impresión que era una traducción al pie de la letra.

    Saludos

    Puede que dependa de la región, pero para mí (de California y Nueva York) suena más natural:

    How about we leave...

    What if we leave...

    Claro que se entiende "How about if we leave...", pero yo no lo diría así.

    In addition:

    -How about leaving tomorrow?
    -How's about leaving tomorrow?

    Perfecto. Igual por este lado del charco.

    Estaría igual de correcto decir:

    What if we leave tomorrow??

    I would say that "What if we leave tomorrow?" is more of an actual question (What would happen then?), while "How about we leave tomorrow?" is more of a suggestion, more like "Why don't we leave tomorrow?" With the latter, the response sought is more apt to be "Okay."
