I need a native Spanish speaker to help me out in learning Spanish and for clarifying doubts.
They are both the right word. It just depends upon what country that the source of Spanish comes from. It is like the word for car can be carro, coche, auto, or vehiculo depending on the country. If you want to drive that car in one country it can be conducir but in another country it is manejar.
Thanks for replying fergnzl........, I need you to help in possesives' in Spanish , which is quite an onerous task for me and also help me in speaking Spanish fluently by chatting , which is a great step to improve my language skills........Can I know from which country do you belong?
I am able to grasp atleast 50-60% what you've said , and later took the help of google translator to find out the entire meaning,.......I've just understood one sentence completely.......soy de mexico y tu?.......i am from mexico and you?..........soy de India.........es cierto?
Literally translated that sentence makes sort of sense in english
Cuántos (how many) años (years) es el (is he)
How ever in spanish you dont have people how old they are, you literally say "How many years do you have" Or in this case "How many years does he have"
So instead of ¿Cuántos años es el? You should say ¿Cuántos años tiene él?
