How do you say "tu estas aqui" in English? Doesn't "estas" mean "these?" Word for word, it looks like "you these here."

It does mean these. However, I think what is intended is actually "Tú estás aquí." This would mean that it actually translates as "You are here."

To expand on what oceanix said, the tilde ( accent ) over the "a" changes the meaning. "estas" (no tilde) means "these". "estás" means "you are". "Tu" (no tilde) means "your". "Tú" means "you".

To type these hear, you can use the letters below the "ask question" box.
