When I ask a question, my friends say "como." What does this mean?[removed]void(0);
I have a friend that is teaching me Spanish and for some reason she is giving me a test tomorrow and i need help.
Most likely, she's meaning:
¿Cómo? = What?
As in: ¿Qué dijiste? Repita, por favor. (What did you say? Repeat, please.)
It's pretty commonly used among my Spanish-speaking friends.
Good luck on your test...and ¡Bienvenido al foro! (Welcome to the forum!)
If I may hi-jack this thread (because I feel my question's related enough), what would be the difference between saying "Que?" and "Como?". I've always used "Que?" to mean "What?". Does one sound more polite, or..?
If somebody asks me a question, and I say "¿cómo? it means that I didn't understand and I'm asking him to repeat it. Your post is not totally clear, so I'm just guessing.
They are telling you that they either did not hear what you said or did not understand what you said. So either repeat what you said or elaborate on what you said.
