I thought Que tal?was an informal greeting. Given as a correct form in your answers whe greeting an elderly man.
In the dictado exercise Carbón (A2) there is a sentence, I was very good, Yo fui buenísima that corrects to fuí with a tilde yet I can find no source that uses a tilde with fui. Is this an error? Also the word buenísima does not appear in my New World Spanish/English dictionary, if I Google buenísima it reverse translates to muy bien but this exchanges a adjective for a adverb. What's going on here?
I thought if the two clauses in a sentence that normally takes the subjunctive both have the same subject, you would use an infinitive form rather than a subjunctive?
I am getting confused with vuestro's use:
Am I correct in assuming the word "vuestros: is related to the "vosotros" informal usage in Spain that is not used in Latin America.
What I am wondering is; What would be the LatAm version of the informal plural yours, i.e. vuestros?
It would be really helpful if these differences were noted here (and elsewhere as well)
(By the way: Well done on noting them in some of the lessons I've seen)
I find the Spanish use of "vos" confusing, as I have been learning the LatAm version. In addition, I am French, and in French the "vous" is formal! Yikes!
Thank you for your time.
