▶The meaning of the asterisks in this Portuguese guide (click to read the content)

⚠Attention: the questions that are marked with an asterisk (*) are used in Spanish in informal situations.

  • They are not slang, nor contain curse words, but they are not suitable for situations that require a certain formality, such as the work environment.

⚠Attention: many of the Spanish phrases in this guide have two possibilities, depending on the formality of the situation in which we communicate.

  • For this reason, you will see the slash (/) indicating these alternatives: first the phrase if we use “TÚ” (informal) as form of address and then the same phrase, but using “USTED” (formal) as form of address.
  • Some phrases only appear with “TÚ” because they will normally only be used to talk to someone with whom we already have a personal relationship and, therefore, we address this person with “TÚ”.
