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?

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

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.)
