Spanish words meaning YOU

Spanish has several words meaning you.

The formal ones are:
usted (singular)
ustedes (plural)
Usted and ustedes are used when speaking to strangers or to someone in a high position.

The more common ones are:
vosotros (plural)
Tú and vosotros are used by relatives and intimate friends or in speaking to children.

Important notes: In Latin America, the informal plural, vosotros, is seldom used, even when talking with family members, so ustedes is used in plural cases. In Spain, vosotros is generally used as the plural of tĂș.
