I am (something) vs. I have (something).
I wasn't quite sure how else to phrase the subject but what I'm looking for is a list of phrases in Spanish where we would use "To be ____" in English, but Spanish uses "Tener _____"
I am cold = Tengo frio You are jealous = Tienes celos I am 42 years old = Tengo años 42.
There's also "Tengo hambre" and "Tengo sed" for "I am hungry" and "I am thirsty".
Hi Dif! Here are some familiar tener expressions that denote "to be" in English:
tener miedo (de)= to be afraid (of)
tener éxito= to be successful
tener sueño= to be sleepy
tener calor= to be warm/hot
tener paciencia= to be patient
tener suerte= to be lucky
There are others that can be added to this, but these are all that I remember right now. Good luck! (¡Que tengas suerte!)
