Why is it Su and not ella? I forget...
Because it is her (=su) and not she (=ella).
can't it also be "el padre de ella es alto"
Yes, that one also works.
What's the difference between su and suyo
This covers it pretty well. Short form: "su" is "your"; suyo is "yours".
Which is better? "Está alto" or "es alto"?
I was under the impression that it had to be "está" but DL gave me "es" as another suggested answer.
Thanks for any replies :)
Ser is for permanent states or characteristics. He's a tall person. "Está alto." would be like seeing a kid after a long time and he's grown. Soy de los EEUU. I'll always be from the US, but estoy en Paraguay ahora.
Ahhg i confused 'sus' with 'su'
I had 'el papi de ella es largo' marked wrong' can anyone explain why?
That's a tricky one.
