Use of "I AM"
To answer How are you?, I say "I am ..."-"Estoy..." To answer Describe myself, I say "I am (artistic)" - "(Yo) Soy Artisica"
What are the rules for when to use "I am" (Estoy) vs "I am" (Soy)?
HI Sprmar, and welcome to the forum.
This is one of our most popular questions, which gets asked daily. Please do a search in the search box for "ser v estar"
I was very confused with ser v. estar at first, until a Mexican friend of mine explained it to me in simple terms-- She told me that you use estar with temporary states of being, and you use ser with permanent states of being.
Ex: Estoy aburrida. I am bored at the moment, but I will not necessarily be bored forever.
Soy una humana. I will ALWAYS be a human.
You are not the first, you will not be the last.
Don't worry about it.
