What is the difference between maybe and perhaps? I would want to know when I may use each one, because in spanish they have the same meaning

They're pretty much the same in English too, but perhaps tends to be more commonly used in more formal situations in my experience (speeches, papers, etc.). I can't think of any situations where one would work and the other wouldn't so you can pretty much use whichever one you feel like using at the time.

I use them interchangeably. I think "perhaps" may be a little nicer, perhaps?
