To say “my name is…” in Spanish you say me llamo… In this episode of Coffee Break Spanish To Go, Marina asks the question, ¿Cómo te llamas? (informal) or ¿Cómo se llama usted? (formal).
Como se llama usted (formal) | Spanish Translator.
Cómo te llamas is a conversational way to ask someone “What's your name?” in Spanish.
Buenos días, señora. ¿Cómo se llama?...Tú vs. Usted.FormUsed WithHow to Ask For Someone's NameTú (informal second person singular)a person who is the same age as you or younger¿Cómo te llamas?Usted (formal second person singular)a person who is older than you or to whom you want to show respect¿Cómo se llama?
In Spanish, “Cómo se llama?” is “What's your name?” when you're addressing a person directly (literally, “How do you call yourself?”), or “What's his/her name?” when you're asking about a third person, or “What's it called?” If you're asking about an animal or inanimate object.
¿Qué tal? is used in both, informal and formal situations, so you can greet an elderly person with ¿qué tal?
To wish someone well, the correct version is “Happy New Year!” without an 's. ' “New Years” isn't correct because you can't have more than one new year at a time (it happens once per year). Use the possessive “New Year's” to indicate a time, event, or item that belongs to the New Year (New Year's Eve, New Year's Day).
New Year's is the end of one year and the beginning of another year. There are two years involved—the old one and the new one—but only one of them is new. That means you'll never have the occasion to say “Happy New Years.” “Years” is plural, and in this galaxy at least, only one year happens at a time.
