i want to say you have a pretty smile can i say tu teines bonita sonrisa'
Well... You have is: tu tienes but I looked up your sentence 'you have a pretty smile' in a sentence translater and it came up with usted tiene una bonita sonrisa so I am not sure the correct answer but usted tiene una bonita sonrisa is what a sentence translator said.
Hope this helps!!!!
Y tú sí, la tienes, Kara. : )
You can also say "Tienes una sonrisa bonita," but the nuance is different, and Heidita's version sounds better.
Thanks for the help!
And remember: DO NOT use "tú" unless there are several possible people you can refer to, but you want to make clear that you mean this particular person (you), and not the others, or you want to emphatically stress that "you" for some reason (you're angry,...).
Tienes una bonita sonrisa.
