Hello Marsha,

Thank you for posting.
We don’t really understand what you meant by ‘Duolingo’, but if you refer to the second person singular, then ‘du’ is it’s informal version and ‘Sie’ is the polite, formal form of it.
Thank you for studying with us!
Cheers,

Will Duolingo be using the “du” form instead of “Sie” for conversations?

Hi Jennifer:

You gave an excellent explanation for “wo” and “woher.” You answered my second question also. And that was the word “her” at the end of the sentence. I had no idea why it was there and now I know. Thank you so very much.

Hi Gloria,

I hope you won´t be confused anymore with my following explanation of “woher” and “wo”.
So, in case you ask “Wo kommst du her” (woher is splitted as you can see, as “her” is placed at the end of the sentence. Other way to ask the same question is then: “Woher kommst du”. Woher is not splitted in this example, but both ways to ask “Where are you from” are possible.

I have a question. In Lesson #11 “Leave This German Taxi at Once!” from the Absolute Beginner’s S1 series, the conversation uses this sentence, “Und woher kommen Sie?”

I put the sentences and vocabulary words from GermanPod101 on flash cards and also made a note that the word “wo” means “where” but that the word “woher” means “where from.”

Now the “Top 15 Questions You Should Know for Conversation” has the sentence “Wo kommst du her?”

Would you please explain to me why “woher” is used with the verb “kommen” in one sentence but “wo” is used with the verb “kommen” in another sentence. I am confused, as usual, and I thank you for your answer.
