How would you answer como estas usted?
Como estas usted is asking "How are you?" in a formal manner. You could reply with:
- Yo estoy mal (I am feeling bad)
- Yo estoy asi asi (I am so so)
- Muy bien (Very good)
There are many ways to reply. You just need to say "Yo estoy" (I am) and then a word describing your attitude or feeling.
What is the difference between como estas and como esta ud. when translated from spanish to English?
To say "How are you" informally, you would write or say ¿Cómo estás?. At the beginning of a question in Spanish it is proper to put a question mark upside down. Depending on to whom you are talking, it is "¿Cómo estás?" or "¿Cómo está usted?". Translation: ¿Como estas? "How are you" "Como Estas" "¿Cómo estás?" ¿Cómo / qué tal está (usted) / están / estás / estáis? It depends on to whom you are…
both means "you" but usually you use :"tu" when you talk to someone who is close do you like a friend or family, but you use "ud. (which is short for "usted")" when you talk to someone in a very formal way. Example: to a friend "como estas tu?" (how are you?) to a non close person "como esta usted?" (how are you?)
= 'How are you, sir?' (Mixture of informal 'estas' and more formal 'senor') You'd have expected the more (consistently) formal: 'Como esta usted, Senor?' In both cases, 'esta(s)' should have an accent on the 'a'. If it doesn't, it could also mean: Like these, senor? ('Like' in sense of 'similar to') I eat these, senor.
