You may have noticed that there are TWO ways to ask someone their name, where they are from, or how they are doing.
This is because Spanish is such a polite language that it has two ways of talking to someone: informally or casually (like a friend or family member) and formally for anyone you are showing respect to (like a stranger, a boss, or a doctor).
The tú is usually included only for emphasis, as in “How are YOU?”
In the same way, ¿De dónde eres? = ¿De dónde eres tú?
This is because that verb ending in -s makes the subject understood.

Thank you so much for the encouragement, Friend! 😀
