Hi everyone! I'm Victor Trejo.
In this lesson, you'll learn how to tell someone where you're from in Spanish.
This is Mark Lee, and he's on a plane to Mexico.
Angel Salazar Almonte, a passenger sitting next to him, asks,
"Where are you from?"
Angel Salazar Almonte: ¿De dónde es usted?
Listen to the conversation, and focus on Mark's response.
Note: the speakers in this conversation use formal Spanish.

Once more with the English translation.
