Ser vs. Estar
Any tips on how to tell when to use ser or when to use estar?? I just don't feel that I'm getting it...
See the reference article here.
Read the reference article but in general it's fairly simple.
Ser is for time and for more or less permanent or inherent qualities - I'm tall, she's Susan, you're smart, they're doctors, he's my brother, I'm Irish.
Estar is for actions and location and for fleeting qualities - I'm sick, she's bored, you're tired, they're walking, I'm in the store.
that is VERY helpful! I LOVE the d.o.c.t.o.r. and p.l.a.c.e. -- I'll remember that for my exam tomorrow. Thanks!
