how do you say " they are" in spanish???
How do you say they are in spanish for example " they are such beautiful beaches"
"Son playas tán bonitas..".. but it all depends on exactly what you want to say. Don't every be afraid to give context.
Have I misunderstood??
The question asked was "how do you say 'they are' in spanish?"
I would have thought the answer to be either of :
─ son (del infinitivo "ser"), o
─ estan (del infinitivo estar)
"Hay" as I understand it means "there is" or "there are" which is not the same a THEY are.
If "dhartland201's" example needs to be dealt with, wouldn't it be:
they are such beautiful beaches ─> Ellas son las playas preciosas (o, bonitas).
I'll wait for feedback from others.
In this case we would just say son unas playas tan bonitas. We would ommit ellos.
They are= ellos/ellas son
There are, there is = hay
I agree with Moe here. Lazurus "CID" rule applies and the use of "ser" should be used. "Hay" is from "haber".
Well. I wonder if it should be "Son bonitas playas" because putting the adjective first indicates that "bonitas" is a comment that reflects on playas. Otherwise "Son las playas más / tán bonitas" seems the way. (for, of all the beaches, they are the most beautiful etc..... ) Of course "Son playas bonitas" works but it's not making as much of a statement about the beaches, as much as it is just talking of the existence of the beaches. I hope a native can correct me if I am wrong. Gracias....
