Where is vosotros?

I have been using duolingo for a while now to learn Spanish and I have yet to learn anything about the vosotros form. I understand that a lot of Latin american countries don't use it, but the place my family is from does, so even with all I've learned I can't hold a proper conversation with any of them! HELP!

As Lrtward has said, this is the troubleshooting forum for issues such as how to use Duolingo. While for language questions, or questions about course content, the right place for this discussion is in the "Spanish" Discussion forum.

I have also taken the time to check out some other Discussions on Vostros for you.

Hi, this is the "Troubleshooting" forum, for getting technical help - and most people in this forum do not study Spanish. Could you please edit your original post and use the drop-down list at top left to change the topic from "Troubleshooting" to "Spanish"? That way it won't clutter up the Troubleshooting forum, and the answers you get might help others who are learning Spanish and browse through the forum looking for new info. Thanks!

To answer your question, Duolingo teaches Latin American Spanish. It does not teach vosotros but it will usually accept vosotros instead of ustedes if you want to use it. Even if you never learn vosotros you will be able to understand those who do, and they will understand you easily.

Vosotros is not taught, just Ustedes. Duo is based on a version the Mexican dialect but other dialects should be accepted.

As I understand it, essentially no Latin American countries use "vosotros" and Duolingo teaches Latin American Spanish.

You can always supplement with other sources. Alternatively, you can simply use "ustedes" and the relevant verb forms and just learn to recognize (without necessarily using) the vosotros conjagations. Your family members may be amused, but they will understand you. So long as you are communicating, you are having a "proper conversation."
