Question on conjugations

I'm confused with Spanish lesson 2.1 - Why is "do you want to do" = "quiere hacer" ? I would think it would be "quieres hacer" as you are referring to "you" or "tu"

'You'  can be informal (tu/quieres) or formal (usted/quiere)

¡Hola MayR107 y pedropedro!

Indeed, as pedropedro points out, quiere here would refer to the formal "you," usted. Spanish actually has a couple of other types of "you" as well, in addition to and usted. You can find them all explained in this Language & Culture lesson: https://members.rocketlanguages.com/members/spanish/lessons/676

I hope that this is helpful! Do let me know if you have any other questions!

Saludos,

Liss
