When I tell someone to be careful, do I say cuidado or ten cuidado? or maybe tenga cuidado? Could someone please put these into phrases for me? Thanks
Por favor, tenga cuidado (meaning usted - more formal)
Ten cuidado por favor (meaning you - more familiar a knkurz said)
Ciudado!!! suppose someone didn't see a step and is going to fall down, so you shout...
I would say "ten cuidado" if I were familiar with them - informal command
what does tenga cuidado mean in English?
More often than not, I think you would just say "cuidado", just as in English you would more likely just say "careful".
