Why use Vosotros - not Ustedes

Why can't I use Ustedes - 'ven'

Hola Bárbara,

Grammar in Kwiziq Spanish is focused on European Spanish, although we have plans to add content and grammar for Latin American Spanish. This is why when we test conjugation we test vosotros, which is the informal you plural in Spain. This information is in our system in FAQS.

Un saludo

ve llegar a ... su madre

This is an interesting construction. is there a lesson that deals with it?

It would seem to me that 'a su madre' should be after ve. could K say ... ve a su madre llegar?

Hola Emanuel

Yes, you could turn it round and place "a su madre" after "ve". The meaning would be the same. 

Ella ve a su madre llegar.

Ella ve llegar a su madre.

Javier vio a su padre comerse el helado.

Javier vio comerse el helado a su padre.

I've noted it down for a possible lesson.

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

I had the same question, in relation to the following quiz question:

Conjugate "ver" in El PresenteAre you, Carolina and Paco looking at the piglets at the farm? : ¿Carolina, Paco y tú ___ a los cerditos en la granja?

The answer was veis but I thought ven was also correct given the available information

How to tell this is Vosotros and not Ustedes.

Could you not say Ven instead of Veis?

Can I say: Felipe veo su madre llegar?

Why is the word "a" used - "a su madre" and not only "llegar su madre"
Asked 1 year ago

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
