Who Is The Lucky One?


Imagine you are talking to a relative, friend or colleague about the winner of a raffle/ lottery draw. You know who the winner is, but other person doesn't and asks: "who is is the lucky one?"

In Spanish, the other person could say:
¿Quién es el afortunado?


Your reply should be quite straightforward. In fact, in some cases, a person's name could be sufficient.

Your could say:
  • Eres1 (it is you);
  • Eres1, Pedro (it is you, Pedro);
  • Eres1, Isabel (it is you, Isabel);
  • Es Carlos (it is Carlos);
  • Es Ana (it is Ana);
  • Es nuestro amigo Carlos (it is our friend Carlos);
  • Es nuestra amiga Ana (it is our friend Ana);

  1. This answer implies a very good rapport with the person you are talking to (you are on first name terms with that person). Click here to see how you could reply when you are not on first name terms;

Now you should practise answering the question:
¿Quién es el afortunado?
