Tú vs Usted


In Spanish, there are two ways to call someone “you.”

Tú means “you” if you are talking to someone your own age or younger.

Usted means “you” if you are talking to someone older than you, or people you want to show respect to. 

If your friend asks you ¿Cómo estás? you can reply “Muy bien, ¿y tú?” (Very well, and you?).

If your teacher or Mr. Nolan asks you ¿Cómo estás? it is more polite to respond “Muy bien, ¿y Usted? (Very well, and you?)

¡Hasta pronto!  

-Señorita T.
