comment Clarficiation needed on “su”
It might be worth mentioning that a very similar construct is ambiguous in English, as well... Consider: I was speaking to Jane's mother, and she is looking for her sister. -- Is Jane looking for Jane's sister? Is Jane looking for Jane's aunt? Is Jane's mother looking for Jane's sister? Is Jane's mother looking for Jane's aunt?

Can you elaborate to explain why that is the correct answer? Simply providing the correct answer on a multiple-choice question doesn't make for especially valuable content. :)

comment Is the Spanish in Don Quixote too archaic to be useful for those learning Spanish?
Whether Don Quixote, or any text, is useful for a Spanish learner is a very subjective question; it depends on the particular learner, their learning styles and preferences, their current level of Spanish knowledge, and their objectives as a student. As such, I am closing this question as Primarily Opinion Based. I'm open to edits to make it more objective, but I'm honestly not sure how to salvage this question for the site.

comment “Quieres” vs “Quieras”
I think you have done a good job of explaining which forms are correct, but can you elaborate as to why?

Can you provide an example of a sentence where you would use "también" in the negative, to make it more clear what you're asking?

comment What vowels and consonants are used in the Spanish language?
@Envite: 1) I disagree. The English version of the wiki page does not list & as a vowel, because in English it is pronounced as and, whereas in Spanish it is a vowel, pronounced as i or y. 2) Your link provides a list of letters in the alphabet; this is not a list of all possible letters. Just because & is not a member of the 27-letter Spanish alphabet does not mean it's not a letter. Even in English & was historically considered the 27th letter of the alphabet.

comment What vowels and consonants are used in the Spanish language?
@ArcDare: vowels and consonants are phenomes, not letters. Letters are used to represent phenomes, thus vowels and consonants. But letters are not vowels and consonants. The idea that letters are either vowels or consonants is a grade-school level over-simplification, that is not appropriate for an expert-level Q&A site.

comment What vowels and consonants are used in the Spanish language?
@Envite: 1) Wikipedia, the source I was quoting, disagrees with you saying "la letras A, E, I, O, U, Y, & se utilizan para representar vocales". 2) How do you know it's not a letter? It certainly fits the definition of "letter" on both wikipedia and dictionary.com.

You're confusing letters with vowels and consonants.

comment What vowels and consonants are used in the Spanish language?
I edited the title to match the question; the question was always about which vowels are in Spanish. See my answer above for a complete explanation of which vowels exist in each language. But as an example, Spanish doesn't have the "oo" vowel as in the English word "good". English also does have the ñ consonant, as in the words onion and canyon--it's just spelled differently in English. English does not have a trilled r consonant, Spanish does.

comment ¿Cómo se puede llamar al español hablado en América Latina?
Técnicamente, todo español es latino. De hecho, "América Latina" se llama eso porque fue habitado hablantes latinos--Español, Portugués, y Francés. Por eso, prefiero yo el término español de Latinomérica, aun que otros entienden "Español Latino" para significar la misma cosa.

comment Why do we use different words for “Usted es un niño” and “Tú eres un niño”?
I encourage you specifically to read this question and its answers, as it explains how Usted is used, grammatically.

comment What does 'examen de grado' mean?
Welcome to Spanish.SE! I have edited the question to be about the meaning of the term, rather than the English translation--translations to English are off-topic for a site about Spanish, for obvious reasons. But questions about the meaning of a Spanish term are well on-topic.

comment What vowels and consonants are used in the Spanish language?
This doesn't really answer the question of what are the vowels and consonants; and further, it's not actually true. Spanish and English do not have the same vowels and consonants. English has far more vowels than Spanish (12 vs 5)--and Spanish has a few consonants that English doesn't have (such as the trilled R).
