if I am asking my spanish professor whether or not he agrees with me ( on anything) would I say.... Esta usted acerdo?
I told my spanish professor about a problem with a particular assignment, and I wanted to know if he agreed with my reason, so my question is... Would I say...Esta usted acerdo?
but why would I use " de" in front of it?
Estar de acuerdo (con álguien) = To agree (with someone)
Maybe something like "I am of agreement with you"
Un acuerdo = An agreement (noun)
Does this help, jjanssen?
By the way - welcome to the forum
In English you wouldn't say:
I am agreement. We use in agreement.
Spanish happens to use de as their preposition.
Think of it as when we say we are in agreement. We are of one mind, or of one accord.
¿Está usted de acuerdo?
