    Default How do you say " you are the best" or "you are the greatest"?

    How do you say to a person "you are the best" or "you are the greatest". This is a general conversation I would tell a fellow employee. We are always telling each other that phrase as a pat on the back for good work.

    Thanks
    Jim

    Eres el más grande--- ¿Puedo estar segura que la person a quién digo eso no se pondría ofendida? Es que suena como un comentario sobre el peso de la persona.

    you can say "Eres el mejor" for example, and buy a good dictionary, if you have know language. I know one the best dictionary, i buy it in Spain in Barcelona on the Italy St.
    but you can find it in Internet, book called "Know Spanish" I pay for this use Debit cards in Spain.

    Ustedes son los mejores
    Ustedes son los más grandes

    Creo que al sur del cono sur dicen: ustedes sois, pero prefiero que te lo aclaren ellos.

    Elmesquite: "Usted eres el mayor" is wrong. There's a mistake in the number ("Usted" es singular and "eres" is plural)
