Impersonal Se in Spanish
Impersonal expressions are used when the subject of a verb is unspecified or unknown (but is human). They are mostly used to make general statements and to express rules, but are also very useful for asking how to spell a word or what a word means.
Notice that while the English translation contains one, they, or you, there is no subject specified in Spanish.
