How to tell this is Vosotros and not Ustedes.

Could you not say Ven instead of Veis?

Hola Marc

Not sure if you are referring to a specific question in this lesson.

For a "you plural informal", as in "you guys" we use the pronoun "vosotros", and needs its conjugation, e.g "veis, vais, tenéis, vivís, etc". For a "you plural formal" we use pronoun "ustedes", with a different ending, e.g "ven, van, tienen,, viven, etc" (which is the same as the "ellos" form).

You may be referring to a different use of ustedes in Latin America where they use pronoun ustedes as an informal you plural, and they hardly use pronoun "vosotros". If that is the case, we are working towards expanding our content to Latin American Spanish, but at the moment, all our content is Spanish from Spain. 

If this is not what you were referring to, please let us know and we can explain.

Un saludo

Can I say: Felipe veo su madre llegar?

Why is the word "a" used - "a su madre" and not only "llegar su madre"

Hola Emanuel, Verb "ver" needs an "a" if what you see is a person. In this specific question, the "a" has been placed after the second verb "llegar" but it is still a preposition that is linked to "ver". There are two correct sentences but both with preposition "a": 1. Felipe ve llegar a su madre 2. Felipe ve a su madre llegar. ; )

This sentence was confusing to me also. I have not seen llegar used in this manner. Could you use "la llegada"  or the arrival? Gracias
Clever stuff underway!
