I found this information on another website that was quote helpful. Here's 3 different phrases for "excuse me":

"Disculpe" can be used to get someone's attention, such as when you say "excuse me" to a waiter, shop keeper, etc.

"Con permiso" is similar to asking "May I get by, please?'" "Would you mind moving over a little?'"

"Perdón" can be used an an apology when you bump into someone in a crowd or step on someone's toe.

NOTE: I am NOT a native speaker. Perhaps someone else can verify the validity of the above expressions.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SergioOQ

Native speaker here. Yes, it's ok. "Con permiso" it's like "excuse me" if you are moving trough a crowd, or you could also end a formal talk, like "excuse me" and then walk away. In this case, it could be "con permiso" or "con su permiso".

Of course, like everything in spanish, there is a huge variation among countries, but in a formal enviroment it should work.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MarvinElen

Lo siento, disculpa or disculpe. And also "lo lamento". I am a native spanish speaker.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FreebooterFox

After using "disculpe" at work I was corrected by several Mexicans that "con permiso" was more appropriate, basically with the same explanation you've provided.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

So, you used it ("con permiso") to ask "May I...? Or they tell you to use in another way in México?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mkazdc

You would say disculpe if you were trying to get someone's attention, and con permiso if you were passing by a group and needed to get through. I can say this is true as a native Spanish speaker.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Asmaa50110

Can you tell me please what the name of this website "por favor "


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aneta194183

I have a question: ,,Lo siento." is like literally I'm sorry for this or that? And these others are more like pardon, May I and exuse me?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sufrejo

I believe the translation is "I feel it"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Atrin523

Pretty sure you got it

Thanks very helpful

This was helpful, gracias


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Revelatory

So is this in the imperative form?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/whozombiegeek

What does imperative mean


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ashishkath

Absolutely necessary


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nokkenbuer

Only in morality, ethics, and common parlance. In grammar, an imperative is a word or phrase used to command something, such as:

"Excuse me!" (You technically commanding to be excused, not requesting.)

"Move this for me." (You are commanding an action, not requesting or suggesting or wishing for it.)

"Look at me." (You are telling the person to look at you, not asking.)

How do u write in teal?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/okayxyiah

Ít happened automatically cuz its a link


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/linkthehylian

(They meant the "imperative form" regarding grammar structure)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

Si = if.
Sí= Yes.
You need the accent.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Keisha670244

Do accent marks really matter?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DreamsOfFluency

Yes, accent marks can matter - especially when writing, because words can mean very different things with and without accents. It would be hard to tell the difference between some conjugated verbs and what tense you are talking about without them, too.

https://spanish.stackexchange.com/questions/84/how-important-are-accents-in-written-spanish

El camino → (the road)

Él caminó → (he walked)

Yo camino → (I walk)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Keisha670244

Oh wow i didnt relize how much they matter


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/claybird121

How should this be used compared to lo siento, perdon, etc?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

lo siento is, I'm sorry. perdón is like when you have done something wrong and you want forgiveness. Disculpe is when you say to someone, can I use your phone?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/caiser

Disculpa is the same than "perdona" or "lo siento", but a bit more formal, they are used like I'm sorry, but "disculpa", also perdona, are used to get the attention of one person like in your example: "Disculpa/Perdona, ¿Puedo usar tú teléfono?"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GuardianCiego

"[...]tu teléfono" with no accent in 'tu'.

Normally, you would address someone formally, and use the formal you conjugation in those sentences.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

It depends, you can try to attract the attention of a friend. It's why there's both "disculpe" the formal one, and "disculpa" the informal one.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

So, disculpa = perdona = attrating someone's attention.

I think "lo siento" is not only more formal, but has a stronger meaning, and so, is used in different contexts than "perdona". Like "I am sorry" is not only more formal than "Excuse me", but is stronger, and so with a different meaning, and context.

According to what you've heard, "lo siento", is it really used in the same contexts than "disculpa"? They say in grammar sites that "lo siento" is more "I am sorry", like "I am sorry for this mistake", or "I feel sorry for your pain".

And perdón, in this case, is different from perdona/disculpa, because it's like bumping in someone.

Do you confirm?
I know there's some regional variations, but I want to stick with some differences, because on Duo, they make the differences. They don't accept any in any contexts. Like here "perdón" is not accepted I think. But according to what you said "perdona" should be.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cervezafria

Yes... "disculpe" also as "may I interrupt you?"or "excuse me" ... when you have a question for someone who is otherwise occupied.

Excuse me, do you know where Earle St is?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/littlecute57

Disculpe= excuse me


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

Yes, for attracting someone's attention, like "pardon me" also, in this context in English.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HannahCall896967

i thought perdon means "pardon me where is the toilet at?"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

No, it means that you bumped into someone, or stepped his toes, or something like that.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

I think "disculpe" is more about attracting someone's attention, like in English "Excuse me sir/pardon me sir/what time is it please?

When you request a permission, I think it's more "con permiso". For instance, you ask to use a phone or to open a window.

"Perdón" is forgiveness for bumping in someone. For something that you did wrong, I think it's rather "lo siento" (I'm sorry).


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/olatunj1

I see where they are used together in the app. Is this right too?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

What do you mean? Could you explain the context where you've find this word?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/L.O.L

Why is it "disculpe" instead of "disculpo" for excuse me?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GuardianCiego

because disculpo is a present tense in 1st person, implying I excuse somebody. However, I want the listener to excuse me, therefore I use the imperative tense:

  • Disculpa [tú]
  • Disculpe [usted]
  • Disculpad [vosotros]
  • Disculpen [ustedes]

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Yumi.V
  • Disculpá [vos]

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

Disculpá y Disculpáme also work with "usted".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/khalil3x6

Muchas Gracias!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Panzervo

Very helpful! So is the form Disculpeme correct?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jloza87

Santi, it's not a verb therefore it does not need to be conjugated.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GuardianCiego

From the verb disculpar, in fact.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

It's a verb, in the imperative mood. Just like "pardon me" or "excuse me" in English. They arfe imperative mood also.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

To excuse = to pardon, to forgive something (but a mere thing).

So, when you say "excuse me", it means like "forgive me" (but really less stronger than forgiving), and you are not the one who forgive, it's the other person. You ask (or command politely) the other person to forgive you.
So, you don't use the "I".

An imperative is a command for someone else, never for yourself.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/USPS7

From my understanding, it is used according to increasing severity:

disculpe (least severe) perdon lo siento (most severe)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

Yes, it's also my understanding, and it explains why it's used in different contexts.

Attracting attention (least severe)< perdón < bumping in someone < saying I'm sorry for my mistake, or I'm sorry because you feel bad (most severe).


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mark36

If you hover over the word ‘disculpe’ and click on the green Conjugate then click on the heading ‘subjunctive’ you will see the explanation, Duolingo works nearly all the time in the ‘indicative’ but not this time.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/zoomzoomzoom111

Thanks for pointing out the "conjugate" button, mark36! Here's something I'm having trouble with, though: When I click on the "conjugate" button, it only shows the conjugation in the 'indicative;' there doesn't seem to be a tab for the 'subjunctive.' Suggestion for improving Duolingo at-large: for each verb, it would be fantastic is the site could provide an additional button that links students to ALL of the conjugations, not just those for the verb form addressed in the question!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

If you need other moods than indicative or other tenses, use for instance spanishdict.com, and type the verb you are looking for. You have a definition tab, and a conjugation tab.

The conjugation table could be useful for the app, but on the web version it's useless, as it's very easy to let a tab with wordreference.com or spanishdict.com open with the Duo tab.

But if you have suggestion, you should post them in the "discuss" general forum (subforum: Spanish).


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vicky2809

I can't see ‘subjunctive’, only ‘indicative’ =(


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LizDenton

Disculpe and siento both mean excuse me and sorry ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Yumi.V

Yes, but no. "Disculpe" is more "excuse me" than "lo siento", because is used more for things like ask things to the people in the street. "Lo siento" (not only "siento") is more "sorry" than "excuse me", because is used more for apologize for doing something bad, or for feeling bad with someone.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jordie590857

I love this post you should be an onlime tutor


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Revati_Deshpande

Is 'Lo siento' like ' I am sorry for your loss' ?? And 'perdón' for asking forgiveness and ' disculpe' for saying 'excuse me'..?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

Yes, perdón, forgiveness for small things, like bumping in a crowd into someone.
Disculpe/disculpa, for attracting someone's attention. So, yes, it can be translated with "excuse me", but it's the context that is important.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/virtuousgal

I really wish this app would stop assuming you know a word before it's been introduced. Fortunately i took spanish years ago and understand about conjugation, but if you're starting from ground zero, you're screwed.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Khyraen

The quickest way to learn a language is immersion. This is how infants learn. You might miss the answer a few times, but you are still learning. You might try learning the basics of one language before moving on. This will make it easier to pick up on patterns and keep things straight until they become more natural.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

It's because you didn't understand how to use this app.
I've learned several languages from zero with this app, so it's possible, but you need to understand how it works.

Here, the lessons are not boring lessons like at school, they force you to think, and to see what you don't know. If you know nothing, that's not a problem, you over the word with your mouse pointer, and get a definition hint. If you fail with it, that doesn't matter. You are supposed to have a notebook, and to note the correction, like at school. And to try to memorize it.

The next time you do the lesson, it should be easier, and the third time, even easier, etc... Always look at this forum sentence to help you, important points about grammar are explained here, by your peers, other users like you, but more advanced, or natives.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ThomasEuba2

I'm having that lost feeling from time to time wondering where the hell that word came from? Did I skip/ miss something or what LOL


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

Use a notebook, note all the new vocabulary, with the definition, and the gender. For verbs, note the indicative present conjugations.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cosmopolita61

Right. I'm doing 3 languages here, and it's really annoying


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ales_Cora

You should do one at time...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CassielMen

Our brain cannot multi task tú (you) will just end up get confuse because all words got mixed up in your mind. Jajaja (Hahaha)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

Not always. When you are advanced in some language, you don't confuse them anymore. But it requires you know perfectly the basics in each languages before learning several at the same time. That's what we did at school, we started the first year with English, the second year, some took Latin, the third they took Spanish, etc...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AlonEilat

How do you say sorry in Spanish?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Peru_Serv

Either lo siento (literally I feel it) or lo lamento (I lament it).


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

In this case, I think it's more "I am sorry" (= I've made a mistake, or I feel your pain), than "sorry" (= I bumped into someone).


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

There are several ways, if you bump into someone, it's perdón.
If you want to attract someone's attention, it's disculpe/disculpa, depending the formal vs informal one.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ilovetochat87

Ok so i thought it meant pardon bc it gave me pardon and now its letting me choose excuse me. Im confused. I know pardona dnexcuse me are the same but also slightly defferent. Csn.anyone explain what time id use desculpe to mean pardon and when.id use it to say excuse me?'


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

Don't learn the translation, but learn the context instead.

For "disculpe", the context is: you try to attract someone's attention.

In English, you can use several expressions for it: "Excuse me sir... What time is it". Or pardon me sir, or whatever you would use in this situation.
But remember, it's the context that uses this word that is important to know here.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Henry1Friend

Disculpe = Excuse me


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Alloyd89

So what does permisso mean?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Chaterlaine

Con su permisso, or with your permission. You could translate as "Do you mind?" Like when you borrow an empty chair from another table. Disculpe is more like apologies.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GuardianCiego

'permiso' is written with single 's'. The expression may be 'Con su permiso' or just 'Con permiso'. Literally, 'with [your (formal you)] permission'


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/linkthehylian

Random, but it helps me remember the differences - at a restaurant, I've had servers say "con su permisso" when they take dishes away or when coming to refill a cup (to infer they didn't want to interrupt).


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

Yes, because it's used to ask politely if we can do something (or assuming you want it, but doing it politely, like turning it into a question).

Literally it is "with your permission?".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Swizz14

Does someone know how do we say how r u in spanish


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Yumi.V

Tú: ¿Cómo estás?/¿Cómo andas?

Usted: ¿Cómo está?/¿Cómo anda?

Vos: ¿Cómo estás?/¿Cómo andás?

Vosotros/vosotras: ¿Cómo estáis?/¿Cómo andáis?

Ustedes: ¿Cómo están?/¿Cómo andan?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

¿Cómo anda? Are you sure? (but you seem good at Spanish).
Where is it used? It's the first time I see it.
It looks like the french "Comment ça va?" in the meaning.

Is it colloquial?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/takethisstuff

Did anyone else just put "Excuse"? Or am I sad and alone?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kushmitakc

'Disculpe' sound similar to 'Excuse me' right


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MaymoonahK

ok they made me get it wrong because I have a British accent


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Roary_Dinasour

You can go to your settings and change the language to British English. If it is already on that then you can post a comment in the "troubleshooting" section.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DreamsOfFluency

I don't see anywhere in settings where you can change to British English. I"m not British, but not sure how you could do that. Even the Spanish covers everything from Spain to Chile. There is no setting for one or the other.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MaryMeln

What is the difference between "disculpe" and "con permiso"? Are they interchangeable?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

mary- disculpe is for excusing yourself, con permiso, you ask the permission to do something, not interchangeable


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MaryMeln

So, if I need to pass someone in a crowded grocery store aisle, which is more appropriate to say? (thanks!)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sheepswithhats

con permiso is more appropriate to say when passing somebody in a grocery store isle. disculpe is for when you are trying to get somebody's attention such as a waitress or a manager. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hutchiee

disculpe means: Exuse me, con permiso means: may i get by

De nada


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bill3936

was taught disculpeme for excuse me. Professor at U.C.I. now, Miss Von Valtier became Mrs Hays. She spent years in Mexico Y Guatemala


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/raffoss

If i understand correctly: Disculpe=Excuse me (imperative)..however isn't it the same as "Disculpame"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GuardianCiego

Literally, disculpe [usted, formal] means just excuse, the me part is implied, optional and normally omitted.

Discúlpame (disculpa- [tú, informal] + -me [me, to me] means excuse me.

In real world, both can be used but use the first one in formal situations (disculpe or discúlpeme); and the second one in familiar situations (disculpa or discúlpame).

Sometimes the verb 'perdonar' is also used in this context. It means forgive and excuse.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

So in formality (decreasing formality):

discúlpeme > disculpe > discúlpame > disculpa.

Is it right or wrong?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/caiser

Yes, both are interchangeable


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cortly

Aaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! I wrote discoulpe on accident, and i lost a heart!!! 8(


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PurpleTiger2001

I accidentally wrote Diculpe. Is this another word?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElaSp6v

Does it have to be capitalized?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

Disculpe: It can be considered a line of dialog (capitalized), or a separated word like in a dictionary (not capitalized). Whatever. Capitalize it or not, it won't be counted.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ethanwolf99

Don't get why I can't say excuse like it says instead of excuse me in "disculpe"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

Because in English you would have to say "excuse me" to be correct.
On the other hand "disculpe" alone is correct. Don't mimic one language in the other one, the grammar and use rules are not the same.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/iiiiikkkkk

i get confused with disculpe and perdon


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

Perdón (with the accent): yes, it can be "I am sorry", as it's used when you bump into someone, or maybe you would say rather "sorry".

"Lo siento" is also "I am sorry", but when you did something wrong (a little thing) or when you feel someone's pain.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/superlucia13

here its saying "diculpe" but on my other spanis course its saying "discúlpeme"? so which one is wright?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

Both are okay. Both use "usted", and the discúlpeme, is more formal, than the disculpe.

The discúlpeme has the pronoun "me" not implied, when "disculpe" has the pronoun implied.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mex7Ci

How do i know whether to say 'disculpe' or 'perdon'??

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/King2E4

"Amigos" means "friends" (all male or mixed group of male and female friends).


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JacobLoMenzo

What is the difference between "Disculpe" and "Disculpa"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

Disculpe is more formal, because it use "usted" as the pronoun,
and Disculpa use "tú" as the pronoun.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GeramiOver

What about con permiso? That what all the Hispanics say at my job.

Difference between pardon and disculpe?


[deactivated user]

    What does lo siento mean then?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DreamsOfFluency

    "lo" is the direct object pronoun that means "him, her, it, and you-formal". http://www.studyspanish.com/lessons/dopro1.htm "Siento" is the 1st person conjugation for the verb "sentir" which means "to feel" or sometimes "to regret". "Lamento" means extremely sorry and expressing sorrow (possibly with you having a part in causing it? Not sure.) https://www.quora.com/In-Spanish-does-lo-siento-express-apology-or-just-sorrow

    So, literally, the sentence simply says "it I feel" or "it I regret". But, it is my understanding that "lo siento" could be translated into several similar English phrases such as "I'm sorry", "I feel for you", "I regret this thing happened to you", "Sorry", or even "Excuse me" or even "So sad" depending on the context.

    The following is copied from http://www.spanishdict.com/answers/216207/meaning-of-disculpe Kiwi-Girl Disculpar is the verb meaning - to excuse.

    Disculpe can be used as 'excuse me' it is the formal version, disculpa is a little bit more informal and these words can be used for instance if you want to pass someone on the street or get someone's attention etc.

    Perdonar is the verb meaning - to pardon or forgive so you would use perdone/a if you had done something that needed forgiving more than just asking to get by someone, maybe you stood on their toes or upset someone? then perdone/a would be more appropriate.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LukePeiffer

    So "disculpe" and "perdon" both mean "excuse me", but their meaning is slightly different based on context, right? Like, "perdon" would be used if you were gonna ask a question. And "disculpe" would be used if you burped or bumped into someone. Am I correct?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

    You have to write "perdón", with the accent.
    It's the opposite: For a question, it would be "Disculpe", like for attracting someone's else attention.

    Perdón is when you bump into someone.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ErnCohen

    isnt con permiso another term for excuse me when is it used?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Katlin776486

    What is the difference between Disculpe and Perdon? Thanks in advance.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Peru_Serv

    Culpa means fault so disculpe could be understood to mean "Don't fault me." It is used when you are intruding a bit, but don't want to offend.

    Thought the proper term was "perdon"


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lyann296557

    I put Excuse me as the answer and it told me that I was wrong and the correct answer was the exact same thing


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SylviaLlama

    Could this also be translated as "Pardon me?"


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Veetoh

    Whats the difference between disculpe and perdon?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SylviaLlama

    Disculpe means excuse me. Perdon is "Pardon" or "Sorry." The two are relatively inter-changeable. Say you are at the supermarket, you bump into somebody, and you would say either "Disculpe," or "Perdon."


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/El-Gecko

    The distinction between disculpe, perdón and lo siento has been one of the hardest things for me to get (somewhat) straight. Even the various native Spanish speakers that I've asked disagree.

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sheepswithhats

    Disculpe does mean "excuse me" but it is used more as a command. Such as trying to get somebody's attention. "con permiso" would be more appropriate to use when you are trying to get by somebody. Hope this helps :)

    Why wouldn't perdon e me(sp?) work?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cervezafria

    You could use that, but I would typically reserve perdóneme to beg forgiveness for an inadvertent intrusion or offence on my part. For example, I bumped into you as I headed fro the elevator... I didn't mean to do so, but I was careless and not watching where I was going. In that case, I would basically be saying "I'm sorry, my fault".


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AdamRidley1

    How is perdon different?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jb11131999

    when do i use this instead of perdón?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

    You use it when you want to attract someone's attention, and you use perdón, when you bumped into someone for instance.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RebekahLTa

    Shouldn't it be disculpeme?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/anomiexx

    I suspect "disculpe" here is a reduced idiomatic form, like in English saying "Sorry!" instead of "I'm sorry!".


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cosmopolita61

    How would you say "Excuse us?" That's how I translated disculpe by mistake


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/anomiexx

    I don't know what would be more common among native speakers, but "disculpenos" or "nos disculpe".

    Properly "excuse me" should be "disculpeme" or "me disculpe", I think, and I guess just "disculpe" might be something native speakers would actually say like in English we might say "Sorry!" instead of "I'm sorry!".


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/zselykecs

    Is there a male/female form for this too? I heard someone use disculpa and now I am confused.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

    No. Verbs don't have male for female forms, as they are not gendered, they are not like nouns.

    Disculpa is the imperative for the 2rd person singular [tú] (informal singular you).

    Disculpe is for usted. Formal singular you.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bnat15

    Would someone mind listing all the ways to say "excuse me" next to a clear scenario where you would most likely use them?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

    The first message of this forum list all the ways.

    Disculpe, when you want to attract someone's attention. Perdón, when you bump into someone, con permiso, when you ask politely for the permission to do something.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PierceKzai

    If disculpe is excuse me then what language is excusemoi? Is it french? German? Someone reply with #therealexcusemoi


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bnat15

    Excusez-moi is Excuse me in french. Moi=Me


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

    Yes, and in the informal, you say "Excuse-moi".

    No, because they told us here it was used to attract someone's attention. Apologies would be much stronger, like I apologize (for something).

    For all those confused of how to use Disculpe. Disculpe can mean excuse me BUT it can also mean sorry I hope this stops the confusion


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

    Not really, it rather adds more confusion. Because you don't explain the contexts, and it's not "sorry".

    Disculpe is to attract someone's attention, so it can be "pardon me" or "excuse me" in English, whatever you would use, but the context is the key thing here.

    I really don't think you would say "sorry" to try to get someone's attention.

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

      It doesn't exist. You have to spell it "con permiso", and it means that you ask the permission, politely, to do something.

      Here, "disculpe", means that you try to attract someone's attention.
      So, it's not the same context at all.

      What is the difference between pardon disculpa and le siento


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

      There's no "le siento", it's "lo siento", as the "lo" replaces a neutral thing here (like "it").

      "Lo siento" is used to say "I'm sorry", like when you did a small thing wrong, or when you feel someone's pain.

      Disculpa is used to try to attract someone's attention.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mm2648

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/flabents

      Wouldn't it also be permiso?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

      It can be "con permiso", but not here, as here "disculpe" is used to attract someone's attention.

      And "con permiso" means that you ask politely the permission to do something.

      "Permiso" alone means just "allowed", "permission", and "con permiso"/"con su permiso", say "with your permission".

      I don't think "permiso" is used alone, but someone will correct if I'm wrong.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sean993773

      I was taught this as "disculpe mé" I understand that disculpe is the usted form of the verb, with an impicit "me," but would it be less common/correct to add me?

      It's not right. There's no "mé" in Spanish, it doesn't exist.

      Discúlpame.

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

      santi mistrel- I'm furious when I see someone as stupid as the one who gave you a down vote, when you make the effort of helping people. When we don't wan't to be corrected, we don't come here to ask questions. It must be a person with a very big EGO, who doesn't accept when he's wrong.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GuardianCiego

      Thank you for your honest support. I am actually concerned that other people may think my explanations are incorrect due to the negatives; I sometimes make some mistakes and I appreciate when people tell me so through a reply, which I find a better way to improve this forum. But most of the time, I make sure that what I say is absolutely correct and thorough as only a [Spanish] native can tell. It is because I am glad to help that I bother doing the Spanish course at all =).


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

      It's not necessarily the person who asked who gave the downvote. Only one downvote is nothing, as it's quickly corrected by upvotes. But it happens that a good answer get several downvotes, we don't why (maybe sometimes the people don't make the effort to try to understand what the person tried to explain?), and in this case, it's more a problem.

      I agree with Mitaine, as I'm also irritated when I see things beings downvoted, from anyone, without corrections, other opinions or explanation.
      Basically, a downvote is useless if nobody corrects or say "I disagree because..." and explains.
      Sadly, it's a very common Internet behaviour... Shadow downvotes, and getting off like a burglar.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

      @Barracks. You can't forgive yourself here, so you ask someone else to forgive you, and so you use the imperative, you are not the person who is the subject of the verb. Like when you say "excuse me" in English, the subject is "you" (you excuse me, I want you to excuse me).

      Ok somebody pkease explain the whole thing with "Lo Siento" and "Perdon". Are they just different sayings for the same thing?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Andreea420502

      "Lo Siento" means "Im sorry". "Perdon" means "sorry". They are really the same thing. I checked on Google Translate. It helps. Morely, one tip is that you can tap on the word to see what it means so like if I would get stuck on something, i press on that word.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

      Please, don't use Google Translate. Try to type a text in Spanish that you find in an internet page, translate it in English, and see if it's good or correct English. You will see that Google Translate is really not a teacher that you should hire to learn Spanish!!!

      Never use it. Use wordreference.com, or spanishdict.com instead for instance.

      They are not the same things, as they are not used in the same contexts, if you check on the site I gave you, you'll see.
      Typing the word give a hint, but not the context (the kind of situation or phrase where you can use the word), for this, you need a dictionary or a dictionary site (like the ones given above).

      "Lo siento" means "I'm sorry", like when you've made something wrong, or you feel a pain for the person. "Perdón" means "sorry" in the sense that you bump into someone, and want to apologize.

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Andreea420502

      No. "Disculpe" means "Excuse me". I know that it is because,if you tap on the word Disculpe, it will show you. Im not dumb so i know what im saying.

      Yes, it's "excuse me" like when you want to attract attention.

      Its so annoying how they already expect you to know the word like come on


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Andreea420502

      I will give you a tip:tap on the word if its tricky. If not tricky, give it a try. I did do that before. Its all the advice from me!

      You missed the point. They don't expect you know the word, they expect you fail the first time, and you take the correction in your notebook. That you try to memorize the corrections you wrote in your notebook, and repass the test to see if you understood your own correction.

      That's autonomous learning, by trials and errors. By errors, you see how you would have said things, by yourself, and you can see the points to memorize or to pay attention in the grammar. With a boring lesson, you are not always attentive. Here, you fail, you wonder "Oh, but why I failed?" "Oh, it was this?" "Okay, noted!".

      I thought "pe miso" meant excuse me


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

      It's "con permiso", meaning that you ask politely the permission to do something.
      It's not the same thing that here. Here, it's "disculpe", to attract someone's attention.

      What do you mean? You need to explain more, or to make a screenshot.

      i keep hearing "ees-culpe".


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

      That's normal, you are training your ears to a foreign language. Keep training on the audios.

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nyla606594

      That was so unfair because i put excuse and it said i got it all wrong


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

      It's fair, because you have to say "excuse me" in English to have it proper and correct.

      descuple? I understand what you are saying but it is difficult to understand by just reading it.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

      I think it was just a troll. He can't have typed "de school pe" for "disculpe".

      "Disculpe" doesn't exist in French, people say "excusez-moi".
