since it is written ''Usted escribe'' escribe does not end in 'es'. Does that not mean that it is supposed to be 3rd person singular?

Hola dumasi: I see several others have already replied, but I like to put it simply this way: "Usted" is second person singular (formal), but it uses the THIRD person singular verb forms. Make sense? Chau.

I don't know about the "technical" 3rd person singular and whatnot, but "Usted escribe" means "You(formal) write" and "Tu(accented) escribes" means "You(casual) write". Does that make sense? Did I come close to understanding what you were asking?

Hi, thanks for replying! I get that "usted" is formal "you". If you look at it, "escibe" is in third person singular. Now, this might just be the way it is used in this language; as in french, when you want to be formal, you use second person plural and all the conjugations of verbs that come with it. The way it is used here, changes. It is the you formal but the conjugation of verb of the third person singular. I was just wondering if it was a mistake in the program or if there was a better explanation than the one provided.

"Usted(es)" comes from "vuestra(s) merced(es)" which means "your mercy." Think of addressing a judge as "your honor" or a king as "your majesty." It's technically 3rd person, which is why it conjugates that way, but it's used when communicating 2nd person.

In Old High German it was also common to talk to a monarch or to a nobleman in the 3rd person. People still do it today but rather as a joke. In Spanish this form of adressing seems to have maintained it's polite meaning.

I've never heard an explanation, but I think of it as distancing yourself from from the person. When you write an academic essay in English, for example, the teachers always tell you to refrain from writing "you." Kind of the same thing. Just to make it clear, no one has ever told me this, but it kind of makes sense to me.

"Usted" is the singular polite "you" and it takes the same verb conjugation as "él/ella".
"Ustedes" is the plural "you" and it takes the same verb conjugation as "ellos/ellas".
"Vosotros" is the plural "you" that's really only used in Spain anymore. Duolingo focuses on Latin American Spanish, so you shouldn't come across "vosotros" very often.

Something to listen for: If it's the singular "usted", then the verb will be "escribe". But if it's the plural "ustedes", then you'll hear two "es" in a row and the verb will be "escriben": "ustedes escriben".

Because you don't actually say "you, formal" when you talk. That's just to let you know the usage. If you're on a first-name basis with someone, it's "tú". If you're not on a first-name basis with someone, it's "usted".

It always felt weird to me to address people by their surname, but I guess I'll have to get used to it.

I have a few more questions, like what do I call people I don't know, are my age, and I want to befriend them?
And what if they're not my age?
Also, how do I know I 'earned' the right to call someone by his first name?

I'm no expert, but based on things I've observed from a distance, I'd say you always start off by addressing them with [Honorific] Surname. Then you'd explain to them that you're unfamiliar with this particular custom and you'd appreciate any guidance they can provide you with.

usted is the polite form. It's for anyone you need to use an honorific with (Ms, Mr, Dr, etc). Grammatically, usted takes everything él and ella take.

It's "tú escribes" vs "usted escribe".

Spanish has more ways to say "you" than English does. In addition to singular vs plural, it also has informal vs polite.

is the informal form. It's for anyone you're on a first-name basis with (family counts).

usted is the polite form. It's for anyone you need to use an honorific with (Ms, Mr, Dr, etc). Grammatically, usted takes everything él and ella take. Not just verb forms, but possessives as well.

Same reason it's "your honor is" and not "your honor are".

Usted(es) comes from "vuestra(s) merced(es)", or "your mercy". It's a polite 2nd person address that is grammatically 3rd person.

Yes, in some countries in South America the formal plural ustedes is used for all plural even instead of vosotros/vosotras which is required in Spain for familiar plural. Tú is the familiar singular.

If it says "usted escribe", uscribe is part of he/she/it. Also, the verb is conjugated to the he/she/it form, therefor I was confused why I got it wrong when answering this way. I know that it is also the formal form for "you", but the verb seemed misleading.

"Usted" is NOT also but ONLY the formal singlar form for "you". What it shares with "he/she/it" is only the verb form "escribe". "escribe" is the form used by "él, ella and usted." Just like in English, the verb "are" is used by "we, you, and they":, but "you" does not equal "we" nor "they". The difference is that in English we require the subject so that we are not confused by this. It is wise to include the subject "Usted" so that people will know that you mean "you" and not "he" or "she" or "it".

Remember that the hover hints are possible definitions for the word, not necessarily all to be used in the current sentence, anymore than a dictionary list of definitions is going to all be applicable to the sentence the word was found in. You must choose the right definition for that sentence.

It can sound like it runs together as "ustedes cribe", but if there were a verb "criber" or "cribir", it would have to be "ustedes criben". So there's a context clue that tells you it can only be "usted escribe".

The only words that are formal or informal are the pronouns for "you", which then require the right conjugation of verb.

If you're on a first-name basis with someone, use the informal . Otherwise use the formal/polite usted. The plural is always ustedes (unless you're in Spain, then the plural informal is vosotros or vosotras).

Tú is the familiar form. You use it with your friends/family/co-workers/peers/subordinates/anyone you're on a first-name basis with.

Usted is the polite form. You use it with your teachers/professors/boss/strangers/anyone who outranks you, either professionally or socially/anyone (other than family) you need to use an honorific with/anyone you're not on a first-name basis with. It takes the él/ella conjugation because it derives from "vuestra merced", which is "your mercy", and is comparable to addressing someone as "your honor".

They are not the same. is the informal and usted is the formal.

usted derives from vuestra merced, which means "your mercy". So it takes 3rd person verb conjugations.

https://www.duolingo.com/foraday

Usted does not mean "he" or "she." I can't tell you why "one writes" wouldn't be correct except that given the conjugation and tense of escribir in this sentence (escribe), your choices are to interpret either "he/she writes" or "you write."

The answer to this is easy.I think you got confused with ''se" and "usted". One = se.You = usted. NOT vice versa.
