Cuantos anos tienes? Donde naciste?


Explanation:
This programme does not take Spanish alphabet, so you need to add the accents and the "n" to it, apart from the starting question marks: accents go on "a" (cuantos), "o" (donde), and the spanish letter in "anos", there is a "~" over the "n".
Hope this is helpful
Good luck.

¿Cuántos años tienes? ¿Dónde naciste?


Explanation:
This is one option. The English pronoun YOU can be translated in Spanish as TÚ or USTED, so the two questions above could also be ¿Cuántos años tiene? ¿Dónde nació? (YOU AS USTED).

Another option very much used in Spanish for the first question could be ¿Qué edad tiene? (for USTED) or ¿Qué edad tienes? (for TÚ).

I hope this is of any help.

Best,

¿Cuántos años tienes? ¿Dónde naciste?


Explanation:
Don't forget the opening question mark for questions in Spanish. The alternatives for tú, Usted, vosotros o ustedes (which are the four possible translations for "you") are, respectively:
¿Cuántos años tienes? ¿Dónde naciste?
¿Cuántos años tiene? ¿Dónde nació?
¿Cuántos años tenéis? ¿Dónde nacisteis?
¿Cuántos años tienen? ¿Dónde nacieron?
Good luck!!!!

Wasted resources


Explanation:
Is this becoming a "teach me this, how you you say help in Spanish kind of thing?
I though this was a resource for serious and complex terminology.
Am I wrong?

What's going on here.

¿Qué edad tiene Ud.? ¿Cuántos años tiene Ud.?


Explanation:
¿Dónde nació Ud.? It is better to use Usted unless you are sure that the familiar Tu form is appropriate. (That would be for friends, people younger than you, or close family members.)

The wrath of Aguirre


Explanation:
I fully agree with Aguirre's comment. This should not be a forum for elementary questions. There are several on-line dictionaries to fulfill this task.

Is this a joke?


Explanation:
Again, just let me "join forces" with "Aguirre" and "Two2tango", and express my indignation at the fact that this no longer seems a site for queries or doubts from professionals, but rather a place where "first graders" want help with their homework!

Is this a level 0 Spanish course?


Explanation:
I totally agree with Aguirre, Two2tango and Pampivarga. We are serious, hard working pros and this forum should be kept at that level.
