Why in Spanish is the vosotros not used? I didn't see it one time in whole the course
Duo may accept some 'vosotros' related answers, but does not 'teach' vosotros, nor the Argentine 'voseo.'
How many other forms are there? I already knew about vosotros and I heard something about vos but I don't know the conjugations, now I heard about voseo.
To conjugate with "vos" (which is really the same as "tú" in Argentina) just replace the "r" of the verb with an "s" and put an accent over the last vowel (if necessary).
Jugar -> (Vos) jugás
Poder -> (Vos) podés
Vivir -> (Vos) vivís
Tener -> (Vos) tenés
Ser = (Vos) sos (exception)
For "vosotros/vosotras" (informal version of "ustedes", only used in Spain), you usually do the same thing as you do for "vos" but with an extra "i" between the vowel and the "s":
Jugar -> (Vosotros) jugáis
Poder -> (Vosotros) podéis
Vivir -> (Vosotros) vivís (notice that the conjugation of "vivir" [and most other -ir verbs] to "vosotros" and"vos" is the same)
Tener -> (Vosotros) tenéis
Ser -> (Vosotros) sois
It is accepted, but not suggested. Like the "tu" form in Portuguese or the British vocabulary in the English courses.
Thing is that it is only used in the centre of Spain, while "ustedes" is used in all the rest of the Spanish-speaking world, so it's more useful to learn the latter.
Thanks guys for all the answers! But i think that duolingo has to change 'learn Spanish' into 'learn Latin American'!
I am not sure about having two separate courses for Spanish in Spain and Spanish for Latin America. However, they could develop lesson units that address each specifically. Perhaps units that you can do after the tree or lingot courses that you can "purchase."
the reason y the voseo/vosotros uses r not taught might be due the the instability with spanish economies. spain is basically in a depression with 26% unemployment (50% unemployment of teenagers) and central and south american economies r corrupt. argentine, mexico and chile are of the most stable economies in central and south america but duolingo doesnt teach those dialects. this is just opinion based
