'eres' and 'el es'! omg... any tips?
eres - you are ... él es - he is
Well yes, the meaning is simple enough, but any tips on how to hear the difference?
There is a slight roll of the tongue for the "r". "eres" sounds a bit more like "et es" when said really fast.
This might seem like a stupid question but when should I use El comapred to Él?
El = the
Él = he
ahh thank you! Does É always imply gender? So would it be Élla?
No. É is only used in this case to distinguish it from El, but it is normally used to dictate which syllable should be stressed in the pronunciation. Élla (with an accent) is not a word.
I responded, "It is a man" and was incorrect. Could this not also be a grammatically correct translation? eg. "What's that in the bush?" - Él es un hombre.
However es un hombre can be it is a man.
"Él es un hombre" cannot be "It is a man". In Spanish, it always means "He is a man".
