    I'm learning persian and I don't undestrand the construction of a phrase in my handbook :

    چطوره بریم فروشگاه ؟

    Why do this phrase use چطوره ? Don't this expression means "How is it", with چطور for "how" and ه for the verb "to be" ? Can anybody explains me the grammatical construction of this phrase ?

    Thank you by advance !

    (I hope I don't mistake by creating a new topic, and my english is undestandable...).

    You are correct on the literal meaning of چطوره. The full sentence would be چطور است که به فروشگاه برویم؟ = "how is that [if] we would go to the shop?" in a suggestive mood. Or rather it will be close to "how about going to the shop?".
