Escriba: here, a polite command to one person. See the tips.

Why are we suddenly getting much less practice at each skill? Personally I think we're moving too fast through them at the moment to assimilate grammar and vocabulary properly. Normally at Level 4 there are about 10 sections to go through. Lately only 4. Is there any way to repeat a lesson, please?

I agree I feel not as sure as earlier in the lessons when I was finished a section

Imperative for usted.

Mister is not very formal. Write more mister, seems rude to me.

Señor can mean mister as well as sir. I got it wrong but I disagree.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RyagonIV

It can, but "Mister" is usually only used together with the person's surname.

What is the formal command form of escribir? The other sentences using Señor are formal.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RyagonIV

The formal (usted) command form of escribir is escriba, as used in this sentence. The command would be escribe.

HER PRONUNCIATION IS AWFUL! She slurs her words. Very frustrating.
