Could you use tamaño for clothing sizes? Or is that not specific enough?

If it is asking what size do YOU need... How is it necesita and not necesitas (you need)

August 3, 2018


Yeah, I'd like to know too! You could use necesita with usted, but there's no usted here?

August 4, 2018


For this, it would be "usted", due to the "sir."

Remember, the subject pronoun is usually not necessary.

Why is 'qué' used but not 'cuál' here?

I guess because it's "What size" and not "Which size". I don't know 100%

August 31, 2018


Good question. Cuál usually means which one. Anyone have a more specific answer?

September 23, 2018


Why wouldn't it except "Sir, what size do you want?"

Reply to your question: because you used the wrong verb.

Issue number two:

except ≠ accept

Instead of "...except," I would say "...accept."

All English speakers should use "accept" when that is what they mean.

Why isnt usted used here?

January 7, 2019


I think which size should also be correct

June 6, 2019


Why isn't usted here?

The Spanish grammar rules say that subject pronouns can be omitted from a Spanish sentence. In fact, it is more common to omit subject pronouns than it is to include them.

Seeing it pronounced like as /taja/ kinda hurts. Not sure if it's just different dialects but in Colombia and Argentina I always said /taʒa/
