How am I supposed to know whether or not you are using the ustedes or vosotros version of the verb??

Hi Laurie, what's the context? Do you mean in general, or is there a specific context that's confused you?
LaurieC1Kwiziq community member
Sometimes in the tests it seems to me it could be in the ustedes form but the answer is in the vosotros form then I start to try guessing whether or not you're looking for the vosotros answer or the ustedes answer.  I keep guessing wrong.

We generally include hints to resolve any ambiguities of that sort, however if you do spot questions that you feel were ambiguous, there's a 'report a problem' next to each question in the test report to let us know so we can take a look.

I think of vosotros/as as saying "y'all" or "you both" vs. ustedes as a formal version of you plural or they. Is this correct, in general?

That's right Tonya, yes :)
