¿Tú o Usted?

Are you confused about when to use tú and usted? Español en familia is the perfect
podcast for you to practice this concept! Yureni is Amy’s niece and in Mexico, her family
uses usted with all of their aunts, uncles, grandparents and other elders. Throughout all of
our episodes, you will hear Yureni using the formal “usted” form when asking Amy a
question, while Amy will use the informal “tú” form when asking Yureni a question. We
have highlighted examples in blue throughout the transcript of this episode.
