Flashcards in Chapter 3: Pedir and Preguntar Deck (3)
What is the difference between "preguntar" and "pedir"?
Preguntar is "to ask" in the form of a question, where one is requesting information.
Pedir is "to ask for," regarding something. It does not use a preposition as it does in English: "Arnaldo pide permiso para salir."
Question v. Request is an easy rule of thumb.
What does "preguntar por" mean?
To ask about someone/something.
