What is the difference between "somos" and "son?" They both mean "are" but my teacher uses them seperately, so how would you know how to put "son" or "somos" in a sentence?

Son = they are

Somos = we are

Both come from conjugating the verb "ser."

Examples:

Ellos son altos (They are tall)

Somos estadounidenses (We are from the U.S.A.)

Hi, For example:

Todos somos buenos muchachos. "All are god guy's"

Ellos son buenos muchachos. "Their are god gu's"

Espero haber escrito bien, aunque la idea es esa dijo el "Chapulin colorado" jajaja
