Okay can someone please explain to me how to distinguish between "esta" meaning this and that? I swear half the time I think it means "that" but it will really mean "this," and other times the reverse happens to me and I'm so confused.
Esta/este/esto = this; Esa/ese/eso = that
Is there any difference between usar and utilizar? Can I just take them to be perfectly exchangeable? Or is it like English where "utilize" has a connotation to uses something up to its potential.
usar = uses or use, utilizar = utilize, so no
What would be the difference between "Esta bicicleta la usa mi hermano" and "Mi hermano usa esta bicicleta"?
