There isn't a polite way to be creepy. I'll prove it right now. ahem
Hello kind individual. Might I say that you look stunning today? (conversation) Might I ask... Where do you live?
Don't know about you, but I'd run straight away.
I totally would to but i would probaly say who are you and if you dont leave me alone i will calk the police
One is asking where you(a friend) live and the latter is asking where you(the respected member of society) live
Just a small thing, but it matters for your pronunciation. It's Dónde not Dondé.
I heard Dondé bebe usted..and then thought heh it works for me! Might come in handy sometime.
It's correct. If it doesn't work for Duo, it has been forgotten in the database. Use the Report option to get it added in.
Because if you were saying "where do YOU live" you would use "usted" or "tù" the person would know you are asking where they live rather than someone (he) else. Hope this helped
Well, for starters, vives is not used with usted..
There are three you verb forms in Spanish. Familiar, formal, and plural.
Familiar - Tú.. this is the familiar form used when speaking to friends, neighbors, and family, people you are familiar with. ¿Dónde vives? is how you would ask these people "Where do you live?"
Formal - usted.. This is used when speaking to all the strangers and people in a position of authority. In some Spanish cultures, this includes elderly, family included. Dónde vive usted? is how you would ask these people where they lived.
Plural - Ustedes... This is a group of people you are speaking with. When in your DuoLingo Spanish club you could either use the formal or plural form when asking where everyone lived(plural form would probably be correct) and that would look like ¿Dónde viven ustedes? for "Where do you [all] live?"
for translating the usted would you say sir/ma'ma where do you live? or does it just get lost in translation
Lmao this is hilarious.
Madara Uchiha: Naruto... ¿Dónde vive usted?
Naruto... Wait what?
Kakashi: ಠ_ಠ of course he'd say that
Can this also mean "Where does he/she live?" Because I put that and it was wrong...?
