¡buena pregunta! "older" y "elder" son palabras que se utilizan para las personas que nacieron antes que usted. pero si dice que alguien es "older" que usted, debe ser mayor (debe tener entre 40 y 90 años). si dice que alguien es "elder" que usted, no es necesario que sea mayor. solo significa que nacieron antes que tú.

What is confusing is that elder can also be used as an adjective (just like older can).

As an adjective an older person can still be young: "John is older than Bob." (John may be 2 and Bob 1)

Occasionally you will see elder used in the same way but 99% of the time elder means an old person.
