In this Spanish lesson you will learn when to use the verbs "ser" and "estar." A lot of people find it difficult to recognize when to use these verbs, but this video will show you when to use each of them. "¿Cómo es?" or "¿cómo está?" After this class, you won't be confused. In English you have the verbs "to be" and in Spanish, there are two equivalente verbs for this verb to be: ser & estar. In general terms, in Spanish, you will always use the verb "ser" if you are going to talk about long term qualities. You will use the Spanish verb "estar" if you are going to talk about temporary qualities. In addition, the verb "estar" will always be used to specify your or someone else's location. Let's review this: I am a human. Soy humana vs I am happy. The former is something I can't change. The latter is something for now temporary. If you get me upset, I will no longer be happy. You can also ask me where I am. I will say |estoy en México" because I am giving you my location. In this video I will give you more tips and tricks in Spanish so you have clues to decide if you are going to use the verb "ser" or the verb "estar". Watch my video and start mastering the fundamentals of Spanish language. It will not take you long and you will be much more fluent in Spanish.
