While Peninsular Spanish has two ways of saying "you" in plural form (such as when addressing a group; "you all"), Latin American Spanish has only one. In Spain, both "vosotros" (you all, informal) and "ustedes" (you all, formal) are used, while in Latin America "ustedes" is always used.
Nosotros means we while vosotros means them all, vosotros is used only in Spain while nosotros is used in all spanish speaking countries. WHen in countries other than Spain, UDS (Ustedes) replaces Vosotros. Nosotros is the Spanish conjugation for "us" or "we" in English. ... Vosotros is the noun pertaining to "you all".
In formal speaking or writing you'd use the "usted" form to conjugate your verbs. For example, "¿Cómo está usted?" In informal speech and writing you'd use the "tu" form. For example, "¿Cómo estás?" Formal should be used with teachers, strangers, elders, etc.
Usage. In standard contemporary Modern English, you is both singular and plural; it always takes a verb form that originally marked the word as plural, (i.e. you are, in common with we are and they are). This was not always so. Early Modern English distinguished between the plural ye and the singular thou.
What's your name? = ¿Cómo te llamas? Remember, when speaking to someone your age or younger, use a tú form of this phrase. When speaking to someone older than you or to whom you want to show respect or deference, use an usted form.
We use usted to say "you" formally, i.e when talking to a person you do not know or elderly people. It is also a way to show respect. For example: Señor, ¿puede usted firmar aquí, por favor?
Do you speak Spanish? - Yes, I can speak Spanish. ¿Habla español? - Sí, hablo español.
