VOSOTROS In Spain, there are two ways to express the second person plural: one implies familiarity with the audience (vosotros) while the other indicates more courtesy (“ustedes”). Vosotros takes the verb in the second person plural, and “ustedes” the third person plural. This double option does not exist in Latin America, where the only form available is “ustedes”, except in the religious liturgy, where vosotros is sometimes retained.
