EXPLAIN THIZ PLEASE
CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT MEANS WHAT. WHEN IAM SAYING IAM HAPPY DO I SAY SOY FELIZ OR DO I SAY ESTOY FELIZ. I GET CONFUSED.
ALSO WEN DO I USE SER VS ESTAR. 4 EXAMPLE VOY A SER FELIZ OR VOY A ESTAR FELIZ
Yo soy feliz
use estar for temporary stuff + location
use ser for permanent stuff, remember locations are always estar- even when describing something that will not move (ex. buildings)
Another common one is:
Soy bueno = I'm a good person
Estoy bueno = I'm looking good
Or, as Thalia said it so well in her song Mujer Latina, "estoy rebuena."
I should have pointed out what James says above. The use of ser and estar can alter the meaning of an adjective as James has shown.
Estoy listo - I am ready
Soy Listo - I am clever
Estoy borracho - I am drunk
Soy borracho - I am a drunkard
There are numerous instances and I suppose you have to learn them as your knowledge progresses.
Eddy is correct, but you could also say "soy feliz" if you meant that you have a happy disposition. "Soy feliz" gets 1.2 million googits.
Estoy feliz = I feel happy
Soy feliz = I am a happy person
Also, to say "I'm happy that..." you can say other things like "Me alegra (de) que..."
It is "estoy feliz" because in a few moments you may be sad, ie a change of state.
Because feliz is a temporary state you would use the estar.
