Práctica con usted

Hola me acostumbro de usar el tuteo (tú) entonces quiero practicar usar usted en el imperativo

Veo/Recorro con la mirada hacia la puerta, en la puerta hay un signo el que dice, "emjupe". Sé que emjupe es la conjugación del verbo empujar. Entonces yo empujo la puerta hasta abre. Hay está un hombre en frente de mí después de entrar. Me dice, hola siéntate y alguno te ayudará". Espero hasta la llega a la camarera, después nos saludamos, digo, "quisiera un café por favor". La camarera me dice

"Haga lo que te digo y solamente entonces te dará el café"

horna una torta para mí (bake a cake for me)
cerre la puerta (close the door)
hable con mi hermano (speak with my brother)
nade en el mar adentro (swim in the open sea)
démelo (give it to me)
béseme (kiss me)
corra al cine (run to the movies)
goce tu café (enjoy your coffee)

Una peqeuña pregunta. ¿Cuándo te acostumbras a alguien es un insulto usar usted?
Gracias amigos

* ...practicar el uso de "usted" en el imperativo would sound better to me.

Veo hacia la puerta, en la puerta hay un signo el que dice, "emjupe" "empuje". Sé que emjupe "empuje" es la conjugación del verbo empujar. Entonces (yo) empujo la puerta hasta que abre.

You can also say "empujo la puerta para abrirla".

Hay está* un hombre en frente de mí después de entrar. Me dice, hola siéntate y alguno/algien te ayudará/te atenderá". Espero hasta la que llega a la camarera, después de que nos saludamos, digo "quisiera un café por favor". La camarera me dice

*either "hay" or "está": "Un hombre está enfrente de mí" or "Hay un hombre enfrente de mí".

"Haga lo que te le digo y solamente entonces te dará le daré el café"

horna Hornée una torta para mí. (bake a cake for me)
cerre Cierre la puerta. (close the door)
Hable con mi hermano. (speak with my brother)
Nade en el mar adentro. (swim in the open sea)
Démelo. (give it to me)
Béseme. (kiss me)
Corra al cine. (run to the movies)
Goce tu su café. (enjoy your coffee)

Gracias amigos

¡¡muchísimas gracias!!

Y esto me ayuda mucho..
"Haga lo que le digo y solamente entonces le daré el café"

No supo que se debe usar "le" con usted, pero tiene sentido.

gracias de nuevo, te agredezco

Sería "No supe..." (yo no supe, ella no supo), pero en este caso el imperfecto es mejor "No sabía que ...".

David I have a suggest for you.

In the part where you written the word Yo no supe you can exchange the word no instead of Yo supe que ella no sabia.


Because it sound better if the word no is not here.


I hope you can understand me, if you've doubt about it please, you don't hesitate to ask me.

Of course, but there are situations in which people keep on using "usted" even after having a very close relationship.
...people are strange.
