You familier



Keywords: you familier
Description: The fact that Spanish has two sets of pronouns that mean "you" is often a source of confusion for Spanish students. Here is a basic explanation of the differences.

First of all, while there are exceptions, the basic difference between the familiar and the formal is that the former is typically used for friends and family members, while the formal is for use in other situations. You might think of the distinction as something like the difference, at least in the United States, between addressing someone by a first name or something more formal. The danger of using the familiar form when you shouldn't is that you might come across as insulting or condescending, even if you don't intend to.

  • In most of Latin America, the plural familiar form (vosotros ) is nearly extinct for everyday conversation. Parents will address even their children as ustedes. something that sounds overly stuffy to people in Spain.
  • There are a few regions, notably parts of Colombia. where the informal forms are seldom used.

Here, then, are the times other than those already mentioned where it is generally safe to use the familiar form:

Although it is beyond the scope of this lesson, you should also be aware that in some regions another singular familiar pronoun vos  is used with varying degrees of acceptance, and in some areas it has its own accompanying verb conjugations. Your use of . however, will be understood in those areas.
