How do you? = Do you?

A: How do you like your teachers?
B: I like them very much. They're very friendly.

- Why don't we just simply say "Do you like your teachers?" instead of "How do you like your teachers?"?

Thanks so much!

    'Do you like your teachers?' is a yes-no question. 'How' suggests that a more expansive response is wished for - like the one you gave, where B talked about friendliness.
