In level 2 there are two sentences I don't quite understand: 1) from English to Spanish=Do you have hot water in your room? I wrote= Tienes (you) but Fluenz answer is Tiene (3rd person sing.) Similarly, Where were you yesterday with your colleagues? I used Donde fuiste (you past) but the answer was fue (again, 3rd per sing, past). Is "usted" assumed or what have I missed?

Hi Wayne, this used to trip me up too. When it is you (informal) it will tell be annotated you(i), if it just shows you then it is third person singular. Hope this helps! - Tony

Hi Wayne, that is correct. When we want you to use the "informal you" we use the "(i)", otherwise we're asking for the formal you, "usted": You want = Usted quiere You(i) want = Tú quieres Hope this is clear now!
