Anonymous:There isn't much difference between "como esta" or "como esta usted".Usted is used as affirmative pronoun.
And when it comes to other question: "como es" is for physical description such as tall,short,blond,skinny,etc.
So to ask "how are you" always one needs to say "como esta" in spanish.
Anonymous:Make note that vosotros is mainly used only in spain.....
Its really optional how you want to use it and how you want it to sound!

Como esta ud, is a respectful version (Used to speak to teachers, parents, adults, etc...) of como estas. Como estas means how are you.
You is pronounced differently.
Ud = Respectful version
Tu = Slang, relaxed version ~ Used for friends.
I hope I help.

Anonymous:Well, I don't mean to be too specific, but "yo" is already implied in "estoy" because it is an irregular pronoun. Adding the "o" to a verb in spanish means that the narrator is taking the action. But, estoy is an irregular. It confuses alot of people.
Anonymous:what is the mining of commo esta usted
I should be "¿Cómo está usted?" - And it means "How are you?" with the formal "you".
You know, Spanish has 2 type of "you". One is informal (Tú) and the other one is formal (Usted).
PuccaYou know, Spanish has 2 type of "you". One is informal (Tú) and the other one is formal (Usted).Pucca, I think it may be a good idea, too,
if you explain to our amigo, Anon, the difference
between the informal and the formal you and their
proper use. Just a suggestion.[H]M
